Micro-Nano systems Research

Objects having one of the dimensions at micro-nano scale are interesting to be seen under the microscope and so its applications are.

Be Natural

Nature follows bottom to top approach. Cells form tissues, tissues form organs and so on. Micro-Nano systems development follows the nature's path: Micro to Macro

The size advantage

Reducing the radius of a sphere by a factor of two reduces its volume by a factor of eight and surface area by a factor of four. The surface area to volume ratio thus increases on miniaturization which has immense applications.

My research area

Micromanufacturing, microfabrication, instrumentation and process controls for micro-nano systems, nano-electronics, nanoparticle synthesis
