Our research group investigates electronic and photonic materials for the
applications in advanced electronic and optoelectronic devices.
However the primary focus of our research group is to unravel the underlying physics
and chemistry of the Perovskite and Plasmonic materials for the applications in
clean energy generation, energy storage & energy harvesting devices, and advanced
photodetectors. Our goal is to develop novel Perovskite materials for solid-state
perovskite solar cell (PSC) and Thermoelectric applications (TE). In plasmonics our
efforts are primarily concentrated on the understanding of novel plasmonic
nano-structures using FDTD simulation and experimental techniques like Near Field
Optical Microscope (NSOM). We are also studying the exciton-plasmon coupling in the
Semiconductor nanowires grown by electrodeposition techniques using in-house
synthesized nano-porous anodic alumina (PAA) membrane.
