dk  Dr. Dinakar Kanjilal
Director, IUAC,
 He is the co-ordinator of Materials Science Group.
drambuj Dr. Ambuj Tripathi
Scientist G,

He is in-charge for Materials Science (Beamline facilities & SPM/SEM) Lab. He has played a key role in setting up of materials science beamline and many in-situ/on-line facilities including in-situ STM, on-line ERDA and in-situ XRD facilities. His areas of research are:(1) Ion beam induced modification of surfaces and interfaces and (2) Synthesis and characterization of nanostructures. More
