Hybrid Nanodevice Research Group (HNRG)

The Hybrid Nanodevice Research Group (HNRG) led by Dr. Shaibal Mukherjee in Electrical Engineering at IIT Indore explores new physics of micro- and nano-structured materials, and to apply this knowledge to realizing advanced tools and devices for chemical, biological, optical, electronic and energy applications.

HNRG has been actively involved in the the researches include design, fabrication and packaging of high-performance light emitting diode (LED), laser, solar cell, detectors, high mobility transistor, electrochemical sensors to detect toxic gases and chemicals in domestic and industrial environment.

HNRG has been actively involved in the cutting-edge collaborative research activities with eminent researchers, scientists, and experts from industries and institutions in India and abroad. Some of these Indian institutions and industries are IISc Bangalore, IIT Bombay, CEERI Pilani, RRCAT, and M/s. Fourvac Technologies. Some of these foreign institutions are RMIT (Australia), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (USA), University of Oklahoma (USA), Novosibirsk State University (Russia), Shinshu University (Japan), Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany), and M/s. Elettrorava spa (Italy).

Students after receiving PhD degree from HNRG are successfully placed in faculty positions in IIT Patna, IIT Ropar, NIT Warangal and in post-doctoral research position in University of Minnesota, USA.
