Nanoscale Materials & Devices Lab


Brief Description about the lab:

The main objective of the nanoscale materials & devices laboratory at IIT Mandi is to achievecontrolled growth of various 1D, 2D materials and thin films to overcome the fundamentalchallenges in nanomanufacturing and to develop devices. Some of the ongoing projects arefocused towards industrial needs in the areas of nanoelectronics, nanomechanics, energy storage,smart materials and sensors. The established research laboratory will target to play a leadershiprole in the scientific community andindustry by carrying out quality research work towards vaporphase growth of materials and development ofdevices for optoelectronics, MEMS and sensor applications.
