I have been working in experimental condensed matter physics from the beginning. I have done my MSc project on magnetic properties of rare-earth compounds. During my M Tech, I have developed an interest towards micro and nanoscale structures and their properties. Characterization of the thermo-physical properties of One- dimensional conductive and nonconductive microscale wires using a transient electro-thermal technique was something I have worked during that period .Synthesis of compounds such as Superconductor (YBCO), Semiconductor (InSb) and Piezoelectric (PZT) through Solid State process, super ionic conductor (Silver Iodide) by chemical synthesis & Carbon Nano Dots through Hydrothermal synthesis were few of the experimental techniques that I was able to work with.

At OU, I am currently working on a thinfilim deposition technique called Pulsed laser deposition and we are incorporating some of the advanced characterization techniques such as RHEED(Reflection High Energy Electron Diffraction) and LAXS(Low-Angle X-Ray Spectroscopy) using which we can controllably synthesis layers of atomic thickness. This will help us preserve the composition and even multicomponent materials can be deposited with ease.
