Applied Nano Engineering Laboratory

Welcome to Applied Nano Engineering Laboratory (ANEL) at School of Materials Science and Engineering, National Institute of Technology Calicut. ANEL encompasses research in highly multidisciplinary and cross disciplinary areas of Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Physics and Chemistry and we mainly focus on the application of the nano engineering materials. We are actively involved in industry oriented collaborative research on the synthesis and development of nanoengineered materials based on phase change materials, 2D materials and heterostructures, metal oxides and biodegradable polymers for potential engineering applications. Through the understanding of fundamental chemistry and properties, these materials are tailored for real world engineering problems such as heat transfer applications, cleaner energy production, tribocorrosion and air/water pollution.

Nano Science Lab

The main focus of our research interest is to understand strucrure-property relationship of various nanomaterials and modified surfaces. We synthesis various nanomaterials and nanocomposites and characterise them using a combination of spectoscopy, microscopy and electrochemical techniques. These nanomaterials are explored for their use in biosensors, fuel cells, photocatalyctic water splitting and energy storage.
