Qatar University is a public university in Qatar, located on the northern outskirts of the capital Doha. As of 2014, there are over 16,000 students. Courses are taught in Arabic or English . The university is the only government university in the country. The university hosts seven colleges – Arts and science, Business and Economics, Education, Engineering, Law, Sharia and Islamic Studies, and a College of Pharmacy – with a total of almost 8000 students at a 13:1 student-teacher ratio.Students entering the university are placed in a “Foundation Program”, which ensures the acquirement of skills such as math, English, and computer technology.Many of its academic departments have received or are currently under evaluation for accreditation from leading organizations. In addition to undergraduate academics, QU has a research infrastructure including research labs, an ocean vessel, technical equipment and a library housing thousands of books, including a collection of rare manuscripts.The university serves on behalf of the government and private industry to conduct regional research, particularly in areas of the environment and energy technologies. Qatar University has a student body of fifty-two nationalities, 65% of which are Qatari nationals. About 35% are children of expats. Women make up approximately 70% of the student population, and are provided their own set of facilities and classrooms. QU has an alumni body of over 30,000 graduates. Wikipedia.


Disclosed are methods and system for dynamically switching at least a base station in ON/OFF mode in a cellular network. The method comprises: determining traffic load information of BSs; exchanging the traffic load information between BSs; determining at least a preferred BS for one of a switched OFF mode and a switched ON mode. The system comprises: at least a coverage BS with a master controller; at least a capacity BS with a slave controller adapted to be in one of the switched ON mode and the switched OFF mode depending on network conditions and to satisfy cellular traffic loads, and at least a communication interface adapted to provide interface between at least the coverage BS and the capacity BS.

The sol-gel templating with the infusion of gas bubbles provides a process for synthesizing polymeric or gel materials while being templated with slow bubbling of various gases into the reacting media upon the polymerization or gelation stage. The process uses a source of gas, which is delivered at a desired rate and pressure via at least one inert tube directly into the reacting solution while the gel is being formed by sol-gel process. The tube(s) have a diameter selected to produce bubbles that result in the desired pore size and the number and placement of the tubes is selected to produce the desired pore structure and surface area in the gel template. The gel may be any gel capable of being formed by sol-gel process. The gas may be selected from carbon dioxide, methane, nitrogen, helium, argon, oxygen, hydrogen, propane, ethane, propylene, ethylene, air, and n-butane and other inert gases.

The method of synthesizing carbon nanorods (CNRs) and carbon nanowires (CNWs) involves carbonization of a resorcinol-formaldehyde cross-linked precursor gel. The first stage is the synthesis of resorcinol-formaldehyde cross-linked precursor gel. The second stage is carbonization of the gel by heating the gel in a furnace under the flow of nitrogen gas at 500 C. for three hours. The third stage involves activating the carbon by heating the carbon gel in a furnace under the flow of carbon dioxide gas for one hour at 700 C. to form the CNRs and CNWs.

Disclosed are system and methods for interference mitigation in femtocell network by dynamically allocating the resource block (RB) to femto user equipment (FUE). The system comprises of at least a sensing module, at least a femto base station (FBS) module and at least a coordination module. The present invention involves a joint channel sensing and radio resource management (RRM) using the sensing module and the femto base station (FBS) module for dynamically allocating resource block (RB) to femto user equipment (FUE). The resource blocks (RBs) are allocated dynamically to femto user equipments (FUEs) by the femto base station (FBS) module based on the instructions of the coordination module.
