Dr. I. Raja Mohamed, Professor 

NONLINEAR DYNAMICS (Chaos theory and applications) - The main focus is essentially to analyze the bifurcation and chaos phenomena in some simple typical nonlinear circuits, especially of autonomous and non-autonomous types, both through numerical and experimental analog simulations studies. Currently these twin approaches of numerical analysis and analog circuit simulation studies which complement each other in the investigation of bifurcation and chaos phenomena in nonlinear dynamical systems and their ensuing applications in stochastic resonance, computing and communication are being carried out.


Dr. S. Sathik Basha, Associate.Professor

SURFACE ENGINEERING TECHNIQUES - Surface of the materials are modified using Laser materials processing and other methods. The Characterization modified surface are analyzed for technological applications.


Dr.G.V.Vijayaraghavan, Associate.Professor 
Dye lasers have become an indispensable instrument in any spectroscopy or photochemical laboratory. Many efforts are being made in studies aimed to improve dye lasers efficiency and to extend their spectral region of operation. The study of the transfer of energy between donor and acceptor dye molecules in solution has both theoretical and practical importance. Currently, research work is carried out for energy transfer in a distributed periodic structure in different groups of organic dyes.

Dr.U.Majitha Parvin, Asst.Professor (Sel.Gr)

NONLINEAR OPTICS - Third order nonlinear optical effects are the physical basis for a number of applications in future high-capacity communication networks in which ultrafast switching, signal regeneration, and high-speed demultiplexing would be performed all-optically. Also, the use of organic dyes in various applications of laser physics ranging from gain media in lasers to all optical signal processing devices makes it necessary to study their different optical characteristics. An important parameter of dyes is their third order nonlinear response to the effect of ultrashort light pulses. The third order nonlinear optical characterization of the organic dyes can be studied using Z-scan technique with the help of a pulsed Nd:YAG laser.

 


Dr. M. Md. Sheik Sirajuddeen,
Asst. Professor (Sr. Grade)

Materials Characterization (Computational) - The computational modeling of materials & characterization by theoretical methods is a promising method for predicting novel materials  with interesting properties. Currently working on electronics, magnetic, elastic and thermal properties of transition metals doped with impurities. Electronic band structure method is studied with the framework of DFT using LDA/GGA+U methods.

 


Dr.R.Indirajith,
Asst. Professor

Nano Materials Synthesis by Hydrothermal Method, Thin film Deposition by Physical (Thermalevaporation,  Electron Beam Evaporation and Pulsed Laser Deposition) and Chemical (Chemical Bath Deposition and Photochemical Deposition) Methods, Crystal Growth
