About


NANOMATERIAL RESEARCH LABORATORY (NRL)

Nanomaterial Research Laboratory (NRL) was established in the year 2008 with a mission of exploring scientific research in the field of upcoming Nano Science and Technology. At present research is going on synthesis and characterization of graphene oxide (GO) and reduced graphene oxide (RGO) for electrochemical hydrogen storage fuel cell, sensors or solar cell applications. Research is also carried out in wide-band-gap semiconductor nano-materials for application in environmental cleaning, optoelectronic devices, nano-phosphors and nano-ferrites. The centre has facilities to synthesize pure and doped semiconductor wide-band-gap nano-materials, viz. ZnS, ZnO, CdS, TiO2 and metallic nano-particles, using chemical co-precipitation technique, solgel and chemical reduction method. The synthesized nano-materials are characterized for their photocatalytic activities, as drug carriers, and for their antibacterial activities. The centre is equipped with nano-material characterization facilities such as FTIR spectrometer and UV-visible spectrophotometer.
