In Optoelectronic Nanodevice Research Laboratory (OPTO NANO GROUP) led by Dr. Mukesh Kumar in Discipline of Electrical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Indore we have been working on Optoelectronic Devices, Nanoelectronics, Integrated Photonics, and Nanofabrication. OPTO NANO GROUP is actively involved in the design and fabrication of number of on-chip devices and functionalities for optical communication, interconnects, computing, bio-chemical sensing and memory applications. Our research group focuses on realizing new/improved optoelectronic functions by utilizing engineered (1D and 2D photonic crystals) and/or hybrid 2D materials (graphene etc.) into our devices.

Following are the thrust areas of our research:

  • Silicon Photonics: Micro-Nano Devices based on Silicon/SOI
  • Nanophotonics: Nano Devices for Multidisciplinary Applications
  • Nanoelectronic Fabrication
  • Devices based on engineered and hybrid materials
  • Engineered On-chip Biosensors

We focus on Device Innovations through novel designs and cost-effective fabrication of on-chip devices based on smart and engineered materials for future communication, computing and sensing.The group has ongoing research collaborations with leading scientists in India, UK, South Korea, France, Russia and USA.
