Welcome to Ramaprabhu's Research Group
ALTERNATIVE ENERGY AND NANOTECHNOLOGY LABORATORY
The innovative potential of nanomaterials is substantial. At the Alternative Energy and Nanotechnology Laboratory (AENL), we strive to develop an understanding of the materials at nanoscale. Our research involves design and development of innovative methods for the scalable synthesis, bulk assembly and interfacial control of several 0D, 1D and 2D nanostructured materials. We work with several intriguing materials such as graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides & other 2D systems, carbon nanotubes, metal oxide systems & high entropy nanomaterials.
We work in close collaboration with industries to develop nanotechnology powered solutions for several industrial & environmental challenges such as energy conversion & storage, carbon capture, nanofluids & lubricants, waste water treatment, biomedical sensors and structural health monitoring. Decades of our research and development have resulted in several patents and technology transfers.
