Research outlines

The research of our lab interfaces with condensed matter physics, materials science, and biophysics.

Current research projects involve the development of synthesis and crystal growth of novel carbon materials such as carbon nanotubes and fullerenes.
The growth of organic crystals including proteins is also involved in research projects.

The structural, mechanical and optical properties are investigated by X-ray topography, atomic force microscopy (AFM), nanoindentation method, ultrasonic method, photoluminescence spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, FT-IR spectroscopy, etc.
