Our group is interested in the solution-phase synthesis of new narrow band gap metal chalcogenides in the form of nanocrystals, nanorods and nanosheets. Extensive research is being carried out on novel heterostructured intergrowth 2D nanosheets and their application in thermoelectrics, field emission and IR detection. We also develop novel layered chalcogenides for ion-exchange and intercalation applications. We are involved in studying the phase-transitions (electronic and structural) in nanocrystalline metal chalcogenides. We are also interested in synthesis of ultrathin nanocrystalline films of metal chalcogenides at organic-aqueous interfaces.
