The Mossad assassin had also confessed to having received forged documents in Azerbaijan's Heydar Aliyev Airport to travel to Tel Aviv.
He also pleaded guilty to charges of damaging residential structures in Iran following the terrorist act as well as keeping drugs at home.
He was sentenced to death after being convicted in a trial last August.
Professor Ali-Mohammadi, a lecturer at Tehran University, was killed when an explosive-laden motorbike was blown up with a remote-controlled device near the professor's home in the Qeytariyeh neighborhood of northern Tehran on January 12, 2010.
