I am Prashant Kumar, submitting my Ph. D thesis in December 2008 at university of Hyderabad, India. My Ph. D is in a nanotechnology topic “novel non-lithographic techniques for surface nanostructuring of thin films and bulk wafer surfaces”.
I have experience of various thin films coating techniques viz. evaporation, DC/RF sputtering, ion beam sputtering and pulsed laser deposition. I have synthesized nanodots and nanowires and various nanostructured surfaces and I have looked into its optical, photoluminescence, transport and magnetic properties.
Among nanostructured surface what I have studied are, silicon wafer, germanium wafer, graphite, borosilicate glass and alumina. All of these have several photovoltaic, chemical sensors, DNA detection, tissue culturing and other biomedical applications.
Apart from various thin film coating techniques and nanoparticle synthesis, I have hands on experiences on atomic force microscope, scanning electron microscope, confocal microscope, spectrophotometer, surface profilometer, x-ray diffractometer, vibrating sample magnetometer, Hall Effect set-up and Magneto resistance measurements etc.
Apart from nanowire and nanodots synthesis and its various applications, my other interests include solar cell / corrosion resistant / better adhesive applications of nanostructured surfaces, catalytic activity of nanoparticles, and bio-medical applications of nanoparticles. Further, I am open to other related topics or any topic related to applications of nanotechnology/materials science.
Please find in my page on this site my details of experiences and publications.
I hereby would like to request you to inform me of post-doctoral post as and when it develops in your laboratory or elsewhere.
Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.
There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!
Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
