Dr. Barnali Ghosh (Saha), is now working as a Scientist, (Associate Professor) in the Department of Condensed Matter Physics and Material Sciences and Head of the department of Technical Research facility programme. She is a member of Indian Physics Association. She got Ph.D degree in Physic award in 1998. She got research Awards in Woman Scientist programme in 2003 and 2008 from “Department of Science and Technology, Government of India”. She along with her research group while focusing on basic physics, is also exploring application oriented and technology driven basic research in Material Sciences as well as Nano-Science and Technology. She works an as activity leader in establishing an application inspired innovation and technology related work which has good impact in the society; health care and food care sector and environment protection through innovative materials design. Her group works with a good number of Ph. D students, post doctoral fellow and young scientists. She and her group have filed number of patents their innovations and publish good number of papers in reputed international journals.
Dr. Ghosh’s research interests are Experimental Condensed matter Physics, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Physics of transition metal oxides: Mainly perovskite oxides, binary oxides, Low temperature physics. Dr. Ghosh is working in the broad area of Condensed Matter physics and Materials Sciences which includes the growth of bulk materials, thin films and nano materials. Crystallographic and magnetic structural study using synchrotron radiation and neutron scattering experiments of bulk functional oxide based materials. Transport measurement on the nano device made of single nanowires to understand the conduction mechanism. Growth of epitaxial thin film and multi-layers and study of microstructure of surface and interface of multi layers by cross sectional TEM. Fabrication of nano scale materials using bottom up and top down approach, fabrication of nano devices using various lithographic techniques like; photo, electron beam, ion beam lithography. Using the lithographic based techniques, making of devices for applications oriented innovative work for healthcare, food care and environmental protection sectors.
