Welcome to Smart Materials Lab at the Department of Nanoscience and Technology, University of Calicut. We focus on developing photosensitive nanomaterials for applications in stimuli-induced assemblies, light-emitting gadgets, bioimaging, sensing, and therapeutics. Some of our broad areas of interest include atomically precise gold and silver nanoclusters, gold nanoparticles, up-conversion nanoparticles, anisotropic nanosystems, perovskite quantum dots, carbon nanotubes, and fullerenes. We do various experiments to synthesize and analyze the functionally modified nanoprobes to understand their intriguing properties.
