Novel Materials Group
The Novel Materials research group is headed by Dr. S.
Mitra under the department of Physics and Engineering Physics.
The group is currently involved in the deposition and characterization of photovoltaic thin films, carbon
nanotubes, synthesis & reduction of nano size metal oxides and mathematical
modelling for the most efficient solar cell applications.
Plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) is used for
deposition of thin films whereas PECVD and Hot wire
CVD (HWCVD) are used for the
deposition of Carbon Nanotubes.
The mathematical modelling is done using AMPS 1-D
