Hybrid Materials Laboratory

Hybrid materials laboratory (HML) focuses on developing numerous state-of-the-art nanomaterials to circumvent the existing research gap. The three broad areas in which we strive to achieve pathbreaking advances include – 

HML group is enthusiastic about developing an assortment of nanomaterials viz organic-inorganic hybrid nanomaterials, upconverting nanoparticles, porous nanomaterials, nanophosphors and formulations of printable nano- ink & phosphor paints, etc., The developed materials are employed in various applications such as electrochemical and optical sensing of endocrine-disrupting toxicants present in personal care products and environmental samples, free radical sensors for oil quality detection, microplastic/nanoplastic detection, remote-type (PiG & films)-based LED fabrication. The team has technologically advanced in developing two prototype LED array devices based on wi-fi controller and solar-enabled technology. They have also incubated the novel ‘SENSOIL’ technology for oil quality testing in Association for Bio-inspired Leaders & Entrepreneurs (ABLEST) at SASTRA-TBI. The extensive research work carried out has resulted in 50+ publications in SCOPUS and SCI-indexed journals, 3 patents, etc.
