Group Activities and News
Welcome to the emerging Nanoelectronic Devices Research Laboratory (eNDR Lab) at the School of Physics, IISER Thiruvananthapuram. We are a group of experimentalists on Applied Condensed Matter Physics consisting of Ph.D., BS-MS major and minor, external major and summer visiting students. Our research group is involved in the fabrication and characterization of thin film devices using promising and emerging nanomaterials, which include halide perovskites (CsPbBr3 & Cs4CuSb2Cl12), MXene, organic semiconductors, two-dimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) (2D MoS2 & ReS2), transparent amorphous oxides (TAOs), and varieties of quantum dots (QDs). Apart from the electronic and optoelectronic applications, we also engage in a meticulous way to study their plasmonic properties as quasiparticle phenomena.
Our group members are experienced in working inside an inert environment (MBraun glove box) and cleanroom. Everyone is experienced with various experimental techniques, including spin-coating, lithography (e-beam and photo), e-beam evaporation, sputtering, atomic force microscopy (C-AFM and KPFM), scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM), X-ray and ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS and UPS), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Members are familiar with the digital multimeters, potentiostat, source measuring unit, including parameter analyser for electrical characterizations. We are committed to developing reproducible, promising and emerging device applications that would contribute widely to society. Drawing inspiration from the words of Carl Edward Sagan, “Somewhere, something is waiting to be known”, we constantly strive to develop high-performing nanoelectronic devices.
Our group is focused on working actively in device physics for applications such as Thin Film Transistors (TFTs), Plasmonics, Memristors & Neuromorphic Devices, Memtransistors, 2D Materials, Perovskite Nanomaterials, Quantum Dots, and Photovoltaics (PV).
