Research Work Done during Ph.D: (Total 8 Years; from 1995-2003)

The main area of my research was “Ion conducting polymers, Solid composites.” I developed some mixed (ion+electron) conducting polymeric films by “ in situ” dispersing nano size semiconductors PbS, CdS, ZnS etc. during the period of my Ph.D. thesis work. Interesting results on structural and electrical properties of PEO -films were obtained when nano - size semiconductors were dispersed. Apart from enhancement in ionic conductivity at some optimum composition, films were found to have different absorption spectra as a result of quantum-size effect.

 

Research Work Done during Post Doc: (~ 6 Years)

(a) In India (Banaras Hindu University; from 2003-2005, as SRF/Research Associate)

As a part of my postdoctoral work in India, the following studies have been carried out:-

(i)To improve electrical/ mechanical properties of polymer electrolyte films, I have dispersed ferroelectric ceramic powders having high dielectric constant.

(ii)Thermal diffusivity of polymer composites having different electrical conductivity has been measured by Photoacoustic Technique. A correlation has been established.

 

(b) In S. Korea (Sogang University; from 1-7-2005 ∼ 30-7-2009 as Post-Doc/Research

Professor)

As a part of my postdoctoral work in S. Korea, I have concentrated on fabrication and characterization of mesoporous TiO2 electrode and PEO/ Ionic liquids as electrolyte for Dye sensitized solar cell (DSSC) application. Since I have basic knowledge of polymer electrolyte during my Ph.D., I have successfully fabricated mesoporous TiO2 electrode (pore diameter ~13 nm) having thickness ~10 μm and TiO2 interchannel particles (particle size ~20-25 nm). In electrolyte it has been found that the doping of Ionic liquid enhances ionic conductivity by reducing crystallinity. DSSC without ionic liquid showed 1.04 % efficiency while doping of ionic liquid enhances efficiency (1.23 %) at 1 sun light intensity (100 mW/cm2). Further the optimization of solar cell efficiency by modifying the TiO2 electrode and new solid polymer/IL electrolytes (Chitosan, Biopolymer) showed that efficiency could reach ~2-3 % at 1 sun condition.

 

(c) In Sharda University, Greater Noida, India ( from 1-8-2009 ∼ 10-5-2014) as

Teacher/Researcher)

After return back from South Korea I have joined Sharda University, India as a Assistant Professor in 2009. I have taught many courses in UG and PG level (mentioned above). During above said period apart from teaching I have well established a well equipped lab. known as Material Research Lab. In Sharda University and actively carried our research activity in an International status.

Soon I have well equipped lab with researchers I have move forward in Polymer electrolyte area, Nanomaterials, Dye sensitized solar cell and published ~32 International Publication. With this achievement I have promoted as Associate Professor in year 2012 and continue my service till. 10-5-2014.
