University Centre of Nano Science Research
A central facility for all University Departments and affiliated Colleges and other research organizations of this Region
Supplement of Proposal Submitted to the University Grants Commission New Delhi
Eleventh Five Year Plan
D.D.U. Gorakhpur University
To, Date: 02.08.2008
UGC Visiting Team for 11th Plan Proposal
of D.D.U. Gorakhpur University, Gorakhpur.
Kindly refer to the proposals submitted to the University Grants Commission, New Delhi for 11th Plan 2007-2012 by D.D.U. Gorakhpur University (page 36, Table 6.6) in which a new University Centre of Nano Science Research has been proposed.
The requirements to this centre are as follows:
1. X-Rays Diffractometer (XRD).
2. High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscope (HRTEM).
3. Atomic Force Microscope (AFM).
4. Vibrating Sample Magnetometer or Super Conducting Quantum Interferometer Device (SQUID).
5. Equipments for Measurement of Electrical and Optical properties.
All these will require more than 10.00 Crore and some funds for building also.
Different Departments and Scientists involved in this centre will be as follows:
1. Department of Chemistry.
Prof. I. Das
Prof. N.B. Singh (Retired)
Prof. Gurdip Singh (Retired)
Prof. S.K. Sengupta
Prof. B.P. Barnawal
Dr. A.K. Tiwari
Dr. I.P.S. Kapoor
Dr. S.S.D. Mishra (DST Young Scientist)
2. Department of Physics
Prof. J.P. Chaturvedi
Dr. S.N. Tiwari
Dr. Ravi Sankar Singh
Dr. Lallan Yadav
3. Department of Biotechnology
In addition, individual members of other Science Departments of the University, Affiliated Colleges and other research originations of this region will also be the effective users of this facility.
Nano materials have numerous commercial and technological applications, including environmental and analytical chemistry, drug delivery, bioencapsulation and electronic, optical and mechanical devices. In this region, there is no such type of centre. Therefore, there is a need for a University Centre of Nano Science Research in this region.
