Arabinda Nayak

Professor ,Dean of Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences

Having more than two decades of experiences in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and research, my specified task is to foster excellence in teaching, learning and research within the framework of the education system of a university. In general, my goal is to produce highly acclaimed science graduates with both strong base of Physics and the complementary skills needed to be a successful researcher or teaching professional. I always prefer interactive teaching. My main research interests are in Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science. I conduct experimental research on the development of thin solid films and nanostructured materials based on new compounds whose constituent elements are earth abundant and exhibit favourable optical and electrical properties for photovoltaic device (solar cell and photodetector) applications. During my Ph.D. (1988-1993) and Post Doctoral (1993-1996) work at IIT, Kharagpur I had been trained and motivated towards the search and development of new and potential materials for industrial uses. Many major research projects funded by DST, CSIR and UGC have been completed successfully. I am striving to build up a nationally competitive research laboratory here at the department of Physics.
