The group is primarily involved in thin film deposition and nanostructure synthesis of various materials and optimization of their structural, electrical, and optical properties for probable nanophotonic and optoelectronic applications. Both physical and chemical methods are used in the laboratory for producing thin films and nanostructures. Their properties are then tuned by adjusting the experimental parameters for making them apt for fabricating devices that interact with ultraviolet, visible, and infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. At present, some of the materials of interest are metals, metal oxides, and metal sulfides.
