Research Interests

 

Fundamental aspects of structural phase transformations in solids and solid-solid interfaces. Structure-property relationship in solids. Deformation behavior and fracture mechanisms in solids. Electron microscopy investigation of the structure and distribution of defects such as inclusions, grain boundaries, and dislocations. Characterization of the atomic structure of interfaces by conventional and high-resolution electron microscopy in tandem with computer image simulation. Structure-property relationship in thin films. Nanotubes and Nanowires. Catalysts. Graphene and carbon nanotube based nanocomposites and devices (fabrication and characterization).

 

Current Research Activity

 

Graphene research

Alloy design for automotive and aero-space application

Alloy thin films: Al-X (X=Si, Mo), Ni-Zr, Cu-Hf, Au-Hf, etc. for MEMS and NEMS applications
