Research Interests

Optical properties of nanoparticles and nanostructures, work on gasochromic materials, gas sensors, photo detectors, solar cells, work on multiferoic materials, random lasers and disorder optical systems.

 

Research Plan

Our group is studying on different materials which potentially can be used to make some devices such as gas sensors, photo detectors, solar cells. The technique we are using to prepare the samples for the above purposes is mostly pulsed laser ablation or pulsed laser deposition using different wavelengths
