Nanotechnology

The nanotechnology research center is established with generous support and seed funding from Raghu Educational Society (RES) and a matching grant from the DST-Women Scientist scheme in the Year 2012, to foster interdisciplinary research across several disciplines with a focus on nanoscale systems. Current research topics include, but are not limited to nanomaterials synthesis, nanocomposites, nanoelectronics, MEMS/NEMS, nanomaterials and devices, solar cells, and computational simulations in the area of nanomechanics.

The center has state-of-the-art nanomaterial synthesis and characterization facilities. These include Electrochemical Workstation,  Electrospinning unit, Wet Chemical Synthesis apparatus, High-Temperature Furnaces For Synthesis (up to 1200 C), BET Instrument, Vacuum Desiccator with rotary pump, Rotamantel, Hot plate along with magnetic stirrer (2 nos), pH meter, Ultra Centrifuge, High-Speed Ultra Sonicator, and Cyclomixer (Vortex).

Recently, the Centre has received financial assistance from UGC for the project titled “Development of an optical biosensor for environmental monitoring: quantification of organochlorine pesticide residues in fruits and vegetables with quantum dots”  under project Reference No: UGC-DAE-CSR-KC/CRS/19/RC02/0979.
