Plasmonics for biosensors and telecommunication applications
The materials being explored include:
Hybrid structures of metals and 2D materials (e.g., MoS2 & graphene, graphene oxide) for biosensing applications
Metal oxides (like ITO, AZO etc.) based structures for NIR applications
Metal oxide based heterojunction solar cells
Optical manipulation strategies for concentrated solar cells
This work is being carried out under the DST funded project LITECON (“Light Manipulation System using Micro-Optical Concepts"). We are exploring novel optical approaches for enhancing the performance of microconcentrator solar cells.
Novel photobioreactor system for enhanced microalgae productivity
We are developing theoretical models for the optimized growth of microalgae using varying light parameters to create novel designs of light-optimized photobioreactor systems for bioenergy applications.
