Research Interest:

I have been interested in the research and development of various functional materials which include ceramic magnetic materials, glassy (amorphous) magnetic materials, nanostructured/ nanocomposite materials, nanoparticle synthesis and characterization, development of metallic alloys/ intermetallic and their heat treatment and beneficiation of various minerals. Currently I am working on carbon nanotube production, purification, functionalization and application. A brief description of my research areas are as follows:   

  1. Processing / synthesis, structural characterization and study of magnetic, dielectric and electrical properties of ceramic magnets (MFe2O4; M = Ni, Co, Mg, Cu, Cd, Zn, Li) and (MFe12O19; M=Ba, Sr) with the addition, substitution and doping of various elements like rare earth and/or transition/alkaline metal oxides. The main objectives of these research works are
  • To synthesize a series of Cu-Zn, Co-Cd, Co-Zn, Ni-Cd, Ni-Mg, Li-Zn ferrites by conventional ceramic method and to investigate the co-relation between the structural parameters and various non-magnetic substituted ions in ferrites.
  • Determinations of structural property e.g. phase analysis, density and porosity of the samples.
  • Determination of  intrinsic/extrinsic  magnetic properties i.e Curie temperature, saturation magnetization, remanence, coercivity and frequency dependence  permeability for different concentrations of Zn, Mg and Cd in different composition of ferrites from temperature dependence of magnetization M(T) and permeability,  B-H and M-H loops.
  • Determination on order of spin canting in dilute system by calculating Y-K angle.
  • Determination of electrical properties, namely, DC resistivity at room temperature, AC electrical resistivity and dielectric constant as a function of frequency.
  1. Study of the magnetic, structural and electrical properties of amorphous and nanocrystalline Fe and Co based alloy ribbons with the addition of Si, B, Nb, Cr, Cu, prepared by melt-spinning technique. This work was based on the experimental investigation of nanocrystal formation from Finemet type of amorphous ribbons subjected to controlled thermal treatment and evolution of unique soft magnetic properties. The objectives are as follows:
  • Synthesis of the FINEMET alloys in the form of ribbon with varying amount of Cu and Nb in the amorphous state by rapid solidification technique.
  • Growth of nanocrystals on amorphous matrix by thermal treatment.
  • Characterization of nanostructured phases such as the size of the nanograins, Composition of the nanograins.
  • Correlation of the evaluation of nanograins with the magnetic properties.
  • Optimization of annealing temperature corresponding to the good magnetic properties.
  1. Synthesis of Single walled nanotube, modified the production method to get efficient production, functionalize the nanotube structure to disperse it in water, application of nanotube as nanocomposite.

Research Experience:

  • Ph.D in Nanostructured Science (October, 2012–September, 2015), Shizuoka University, Japan.

Title of the thesis: Development of Bipolar Pulsed Arc Discharge Method for the Efficient Production of Single-walled Carbon Nanotubes, their Purification and Production of Nanotube/Cellulose Composites

Summary: A new production method has been developed for the efficient production of less defective SWNTs. In order to suppress the cathode deposition of DC arc discharge and increase the soot production, bipolar pulsed arc discharge has been developed for the production of SWNTs where source material is effectively used without cathode deposition. In this discharge, both electrodes contribute to the sublimation of carbon alternately and the electrodes remain clean during the discharge. Thus, the bipolar pulsed arc discharge is found to be well controlled.

A facile purification method of SWNTs has been demonstrated by using a combination of dispersion and centrifugation as produced SWNTs is usually contaminated with metal catalyst, amorphous carbon and carbon nanoparticles. In our method, gelatin is used as a dispersing agent to wrap the surface of the nanotube to form a stable dispersion. CNT-based sheet has been prepared by using a papermaking process. Cellulose is considered as smart medium for nanocomposite due to its lightweight, biodegradability, biocompatibility, easy modification, eco-friendly and low cost. This work provides a novel and simple pathway to make CNT/cellulose sheet as multifunctional biomaterials for electronic, magnetic, semiconducting and biotechnological applications.
