Researcher Hanan Zeidan Hamamra Thesis Defense

Researcher Hanan Zeidan Hamamra, physics program student at the Arab American University Faculty of Graduate Studies, defended her master thesis entitled “Effects of Mixing Neodymium Tin Oxide Ceramic with Terbium, Samarium, Yttrium and Gadolinium on its Mechanical and Electrical Properties”.

In her thesis, Hamamra investigated structural changes resulting from mixing neodymium tin oxide ceramics with terbium, samarium, yttrium and gadolinium by studying x-ray diffraction, the samples electrical and optical characteristics, calculate changes in structure constant, levels direction, microscopic stress, granules size and defect density resulting from the mixing. Also, mixed ceramic samples optical properties were explored by measuring reflection and access spectra in high absorption area.

Researcher Tamara Yaqub Abed Defense

Researcher Tamara Yaqoub Abed, physics student at the Arab American University Faculty of Graduate Studies, defended her thesis entitled “Effects of Cultivating Ytterbium // Flakes on the Physical Properties of Cadmium Sulfide Chips”.

The researcher discovered the effects of coating 70-nanometer Terbium film between two layers of cadmium sulfide on structural, optical and electrical properties. X-ray diffraction, electronic microscopy scanning, X-ray dispersion, class analysis and electro-thermal technology were used to study these effects. Pointing, coating Terbium fill with two layers of 500-nanometer cadmium sulfide enhances the structural nature of the films without altering their structural constants.

Researcher Majd Riad Assaf Defense

Researcher Majd Riad Assaf, commercial law student at the Arab American University Faculty of Graduate Studies, discussed her thesis on “Legal Regulation of Foreign Firms in Palestine: Study and Comparison”.

In her thesis, she mentioned the regulations for foreign firms, compared the three legislations of Palestinian, Jordanian and Egyptian and she merely addressed some legal texts in Lebanon, Emirates and Qatar which deal with the existence of such firms in their countries.

She concluded, for their sake all countries especially the developing ones, should have foreign companies within their lands to benefit from it; more manpower employment and advancement at all levels especially the economic and technological levels.

Researcher Qutaiba Abdullhadi Al-Karam Thesis Defense

Researchher Qutaiba Abdullhadi Al-Karam, physics student at the Arab American University Faculty of Graduate Studies, defended his master thesis titled “Resistance Spectrum, Structural Properties and Depending on Composite Ceramics Temperature”.

In his thesis, he explored some of the bismuth zinc niobium oxide ceramic composed with lanthanum characteristics, due to its famous high insulation application. Lanthanum concentration was changed in the range x =0.10 – x =0.22. X-ray diffraction analysis showed that ceramics grow individually from 33 – 57 nm when lanthanum concentration increases from 0.10 – 0.20.

Researcher Maysam Mohammad Abdullah thesis defense

Researcher Maysam Mohammed Abdullah, physics student at the Arab American University Faculty of Graduate Studies, discussed her thesis for the Master degree titled “Optical and Electrical Dynamics of ZnS / Ge / GaSe Thin Chips”.

In her thesis, she addressed the ZnS/Ge/GaSe chips design

The spectroscopy of ZnS/Ge/GaSe layers was studied by electronic microscopy, x-ray dispersion spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, spectrophotometer and impedance spectrum. The researcher also diagnosed the voltage and current curves under tungsten light on the GaSe layer surface from the top. She noted during her study that the ZnS layer is the only crystallized layer and that the other layers are randomly structured.

Researcher Sofian Rateb Shehadeh thesis defense

Researcher Sofian Rateb Shehadeh, a physics student at the Arab American University Faculty of Graduate Studies, defended his thesis titled “Designing and Studying a Wide Range Optical Connectors”.

The researcher designed long-range optical conductors from materials with energy ranging from 1.1 to 3.33 electron volts. He studied the photoelectric properties under tungsten light influence and different types of lasers. Also studied optical sensitivity, optical response and internal and external quantitative efficiency of this package to determine the applications it can used in. Pointing, these conductors can be used to measure light intensity and optical switches.

University President Prof. Dr. Ali Zeidan Abu Zuhri and Head of Anti-Corruption Commission Dr. Rafeq Al-Natsheh

Arab American University, Ramallah Campus, hosts specialized training course organized by the Anti-Corruption Commission for a number of academics specialized in teaching the courses; “Corruption Fighting: Challenges and Solutions” and “Corruption Crimes in Palestinian Legislation”. In presence of the University President Prof. Dr. Ali Zeidan Abu Zuhri and Head of Anti-Corruption Commission Dr. Rafeq Al-Natsheh.

The training targets group of academics from 13 Palestinian universities and colleges that signed MoU to teach those two courses with the Anti-Corruption Commission.

It aims to familiarize the participants with the course teaching mechanisms, relationship between the Anti-Corruption Commission and its partners from different sectors, review results of the Commission studies with the parties implementing it in different sectors and the parties to implement it in researches, too.
