Pankaj Poddar Research Group @ CSIR-NCL
The Colloidal Nanostructures and Nanomaterials Group
We work on the areas which are highly interdisciplinary in nature around the colloidal nanoparticles and biological objects.
Energy: Materials and strategies for 'solar photovoltics', thermoelectrics, rare earth free hard magnets
Safety, health & environment: Interaction of nanomaterials with cells, drug functionalized nanomaterials, microbial interaction, bioimaging
Materials for next generation four state, non-volatile memory devices: Multiferroic materials
A semester long, 3 credit course (Titled: Advanced instrumentation techniques) in NCL pre-PhD programme
It covers the following topics:
1. Electron microscopy (~ 20 lectures, 1.5 h each)
2. Scanning probe microscopy (~ 20 lectures, 1.5 h each)
3. Raman spectroscopy (~ 2 lectures, 1.5 h each)
4. Spectroscopic ellipsometry
Apart from this I enjoy teaching various topics related to nanoscience, nucleation and growth chemistry of nanoscale materials, condensed matter physics at nanoscale.
