Achievements

  • Achievements include research in established electrodeposition as a technique to synthesize a wide variety of technologically important materials. Research in electrodeposition strategies such as selective electrodeposition for growing high purity compound semiconductor films from low purity precursors, nonaqueous electrodeposition technique for CdTe films, in situ characterization of electrodeposited semiconductors. Development of wet synthesis route for growing self organized quantum dots of ZnSe and other II-VI semiconductor, and established correlation between the structure size, strain and luminescence properties.

    Development of single bath electrodeposition technique for coherent multilayers of the type Cu/Co-Ni. Development of multimode and wet/vacuum/low temperature atomic force microscope, X- ray diffractometer with grazing angle attachment. Development of the process for thick copper metallisation and pattern generation on allumina substrates for thermoelectric coolers under a Defense Research Development Organisation sponsored project.

    Development of process for nickel barrier coating for the semiconducting elements of the thermoelectric coolers. Development of electrochemical process for passivation of the mercury cadmium telluride detectors under the Defense Research Development Organization sponsored project.
