I, Sandeep Kumar Chaluvadi doing my Graduate course in nanotechnology with emphasis on Nano-electronics & Photonics at VIT University, Vellore, India. I did my Under Graduate course in Electronics & Communication engineering at Karunya University, Coimbatore, India.

First, i need to mention about what motivates me to enter into  nanotechnology field. I remember few years earlier, my father said me about nanotechnology which was published in newspaper with its applications and future prospective. Later during my Undergraduation, i have enrolled a course on Nano-biotechnology which fascinates me a lot and started reading articles related to nanotechnology.  

My area of interests include Thin Film Deposition Techniques, Nano-electronics, Solar cells and Semiconductor device physics modelling & Simulation. I always work towards application oreintated .The applications and products based on nanotechnology will revolutionize the world.


We study the transmission spectrum between Graphene nanoribbon (GNR) and Nickel (Ni) metal contacts. The transmission spectrum is calculated by varying contact area, temperature of armchair-GNR and zigzag-GNR with hydrogen (H) termination using covalent bond approach. The calculations will be performed using semi-empirical method (Extended Huckle Theory). The tool we using here for calculations is ATOMISTIX TOOL KIT.
