Research Interest
  • Crystal structure from X-Ray powder/single crystal diffraction.
  • Modelling of structure from commonly known configuration of moleculer system
  • Evaluation of thermodynamical parameters namely lattice energy, heat of formation etc through evaluation of lattice energy and use of lattice energy to conform crystalline structure determined from x-ray powder diffraction data.
  • Glass / crystal profile analysis for application in amorphous phase analysis
  • Standardless quantitative analysis in multicomponent crystalline system
  • Structural,sintering and electrical properties of ferroelectric/superconducting and magnetoelectric ceramics and corresponding structure � property relation..
  • Nonambient XRD study for kinetics of oxide formation with study on phase transition
  • Study on structure and composition of materials defining properties at small distance .
  • Microstructural parameters and lattice imperfection provided by xrd profile study

  • Invited talk in XXIV National seminar on Crystallography and Microsymposium on crystallography of superconducting materials (1992)
  • Best prize in XXV National conference on crystallography held at Madras (1993) .
  • Member of delegation in XX Congress of International Union of Crystallography,Florence,Italy,2005 by INSA & CSIR
  • Member of delegation to MRS ,USA , Sanfrancisco, 2010.
