At CeNSE, we have vibrant materials research programs. Broadly we work on synthesizing, characterizing various materials systems for electronic, neuromorphic, electromechanical, photonic and opto-electronic applications. These include 2D materials (graphene, boron nitride, MoS2 etc), various oxides (ferroelectric, piezoelectric), nitrides (GaN, AlN for e.g.), organic-inorganic halides (solar-cell applications) and organic molecular systems. We have clusters of PVD (PLD, sputtering, evaporation etc) and CVD tools to synthesize high quality materials mostly in (but not restricted to) thin-film form. We characterize them using state-of-the-art tools (XRD, microscopy etc) at MNCF. We fabricate devices of various kinds (transistors, photonic modulators, MEMS, solar-cells etc) using the tools in NNfC. Finally, we also investigate these systems by performing operando studies (in-situ TEM, Raman, XRD etc) to thoroughly understand structure-property-dynamics-performance correlations.
