Profile Summary 

Currently, I am working on the synthesis and characterization of polycrystalline oxide materials exploiting their unique characteristics for numerous applications like data storage and retention, capacitors, electromagnetic waveguides, antenna, and smart sensors. Polycrystalline materials offer unique features of present multiple axes offering electrical, mechanical, and optical polarization. Utilizing a particular input kind (electrical/mechanical/optical) to yield best in another is an extremely tedious and interesting problem. Lattice strain parameters determined from X-ray diffraction physics of crystal structure and orbital shapes play a crucial role in tilting of typical octahedrons in popular perovskite structures and generate an interesting amplified response to data storage etc. In addition, I have also prepared thin films of some target materials by Pulsed laser deposition (PLD) technique. Now I am also gaining experiences in electrochemical fields like supercapacitor and photocatalytic applications.
