Industrial Experiences

Current Research

The current research work involves developing nanogenerators based on textiles structures using flexible polymeric materials to harvest ambient mechanical energy. Such nanogenerators are being researched immensely to power up on body electronics for various functions like wireless communications, personal and health care applications, and different kinds of self-powered sensors.

The research work involves utilizing SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope), FT-IR (Fourier-transform Infrared Spectroscopy), XRD (X-ray powder diffraction), DSC ( Differential Scanning Calorimetry), Digital Oscilloscope, Keithly Source Meter, Optical Microscope, Instron Mechanical Tester, and 3D Printing (AutoCAD)
