Research Interest

  • Thermal, optical and photoluminescence properties of rare earth doped glasses, Crystallization kinetics in Glasses, Oxyfluoride based transparent glass-ceramics, NIR/MIR emissions from low phonon non-conventional oxide glasses, Glasses to improve the efficiency of solar cell via up-conversion/down-conversion, Chalcogenide glasses, Bioactive glass and glass-ceramics

 Notable Research Contribution

  • Developed rare earth doped oxyfluoride glass-ceramics containing fluoride nano-crystals (BaF2, BaYF5) of low phonon energy
  • Studied crystallization kinetics of various oxide and metallic glasses
  • Studied the effect of melt convection on the solidification of peritectic alloys of industrial importance and utilized the effect of convection to tailor the microstructure and related properties
