Interests: (1) Flux pinning by APCs in high temperature superconductor thin film.
(2) design, synthesis and characterization of epitaxial thin films materials for iron-based superconductor.
I completed MS in physics from Tribhuvan University, Nepal. My research interest primary focus on the deposition of thin film and characterization. I am interested in energy storage devices especially solid state super-capacitors for efficient and fast energy storage using pulsed laser deposition (PLD). My main area of focus is in designing magnetic tunneling junction (MTJ) and its characterization.
My work focuses on growing zinc oxide nanowires on graphene for applications in optoelectronics through a seedless low-temperature solution based fabrication method. We aim to optimize these zinc oxide nanowire arrays grown on graphene through this fabrication method by varying fabrication parameters.
My research focuses on:
The synthesis of high quality two-dimensional (2D) materials and their heterostructures, (primarily focus on graphene and Molybdenum disulfide MoS2) using Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) technique, also the characterization of these materials and their applications.
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.
2D materials and their applications to new technology, nano-scale devices, surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy
Surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy sensitivity analysis of Au nanoparticle/graphene/Si/SiO2substrate using R6G.
I am currently involved in fabricating a sensitive and stable strain sensor. Piezoelectric material (ZnO-NW) is primarily used to detect the strain for our device.
