Areas of Interest: Nanoscale Science & Technology, Materials Science Among various Nanoscience related research work, some of the core topics of my present research are as follows: 1. Synthesis and characterization of undoped and Ni, Fe, Co, Mn-doped wide band gap semiconductor nanomaterials (such as ZnO, ZnS, CdS, SnO2 etc.) and their applications. 2. Experimental investigation of structural, optical, electronic, magnetic and other significant properties of different low-dimensional materials (e.g. metallic nanoparticles, Cu, CuO, ZnCdS, Pd-Co-Mo etc.). 3. Study of Metal-polymer nanocomposites (e.g. Polyaniline/SnO2 nanocomposite for gas sensing). 4. Realization of various fundamental nanoelectronic devices employing single electron transistor (SET).
