Arifur Khan

Research Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering - Mechanical Engineering

Dr. Khan is a Research Assistant Professor at The University of Texas at El Paso. He obtained his BS and MS degree in Applied Chemistry & Chemical Engineering from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh, and Ph.D. in Electrical Electronic and Computer Engineering from School of Engineering, Kyushu Institute of Technology, Japan. His research involvement was Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOSFET, Transistor, p-n junction, etc.), development of passive spacecraft charge neutralizer (Electron Emitting Film, ELF) and Surface Charging Monitor (SCM) with space grade circuitry, space environment durability test of Spacecraft/Payload/Subsystem/Unit based on ISO standards, space-grade material's properties changes due to space environment interactions (UV, low- and high-density plasma, High voltage, Atomic Oxygen, degassing, Thermal fluctuation, etc), circuit designing, testing and payload development, machine-computer interface, etc. Dr. Khan was an active member of various satellite projects such as Horyu-II, Horyu-IV, BIRDS-1, (Japan), Micro-Dragon (Vietnam), OF-II (UTEP), etc. Dr. Khan is working on the development of small spacecraft testing laboratory with the teaching of graduate and undergraduate students. Dr. Khan is a senior member of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronomic (AIAA) and a regular reviewer of IEEE Transaction on Plasma Science.
