  • Mujaddid Ahmed Ijaz,, D. Phil, was a Pakistani theoretical physicist and professor of physics at Virginia Tech University who was noted and known for his work with sub-atomic and hypothetical particles, and his early role in during Pakistan's early stages of nuclear energy programme. A native of Lahore, Ijaz received his B. Sc. in Physics from Government College, followed by M. Sc. from Florida State University, and PhD in Theoretical physics from Ohio University from the United States. Initially joined the Virginia Polytechnic faculty, Ijaz returned to Pakistan to conducted his research in theoretical physics from Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission and remained associated with his country's nuclear energy programme during the early stages. He took participation, as member of Pakistan delegation, in Atoms for Peace negotiation between United States and Pakistan to established the nuclear industries and nuclear research institutes and facilities for the research on nuclear technology. In 1972, Ijaz joined the atomic bomb project by first becoming the member of Theoretical Physics Group (TPG), and was presented at a meeting with then-Prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto asked the scientists to initiate the work on the atomic bomb,.. He remained a professor of physics at the Quaid-e-Azam University throughout his life and taught courses on particle physics in Pakistan and the United States. Dr. Ijaz retired Professor Emeritus of Physics at Virginia Tech University after a 26 year career in a tenured position. He authored 60 research papers from Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission and Oak Ridge National Laboratories on new hypothetical particles. He collaborated with Dr. Abdus Salam, a Pakistani theoretical physicist who won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on the electroweak unification of the electromagnetic and weak forces. Salam, Sheldon Glashow and Steven Weinberg shared the 1979 Nobel prize for this discovery. Salam holds the distinction of being the first Pakistani and the first and only Muslim to receive a Nobel prize in Physics.
