Since my high school, I was fascinated with the scientific wonder. I was always curious to know what things happen, why things happen, and how things happen.This motivated me to study the Physics and finally brought in the field of superconducting thin films fabrication and characterization. My current project primarily focuses on controllable self assembly of nanostructured Artificial Pinning Centers (APCs) in high temperature superconductor, YaBa2Cu3O7-x (YBCO), epitaxial thin film.
