Nanoscale Materials and Devices Lab

The main objective of the nanoscale materials & devices laboratory at IIT Mandi is to achieve controlled growth of various 1D, 2D materials and thin films to overcome the fundamental challenges in nanomanufacturing and to develop devices. Our group is focused towards industrial needs in the areas of nanoelectronics, nanomechanics, energy, smart materials and sensors.
