About Myself!

Myself, Dr. Prashant K. Sharma, working as “Assistant Professor” in Department of Applied Physics, Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines), Dhanbad, India. Prior to this, I worked as “Post-Doctoral Research Scientist” at ‘Nanotechnology Application Centre’, University of Allahabad, Allahabad 211002, India.  Currently, I am working for the development of novel magnetic nanoparticles for biomedical applications (mainly for Bio-imaging, targeted drug delivery, contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging and hyperthermia).

I have done my D.Phil. (PhD) work on  the development of "Nanophosphors for Opto-electronic and DMS Based Applications" under the supervision of Prof. Avinash C. Pandey.

About Nanotechnology Application Centre (NAC)!

The "Nanotechnology Application Centre (NAC)" was established in 2004 as a Department of Science & Technology funded research centre under Intensification of Research in High Priority Areas (IRHPA) scheme having its name as 'Nanophosphor Application Centre (NAC)'. The centre was further supported by council of Scientific and industrial research (CSIR) under New Millennium Indian Technology Leadership Initiatives (NMITLI) scheme of project and again by Department of Science & Technology under its Nano-Mission scheme of project grants generously up to 2014. University Grant Commission (UGC) has recognized the center as the independent centre under the 11th plan following which university has already notified the same in a meeting of planning and development board. The centre has high research priorities and broad visions including frontline research in the premier area of Nanoscience and Technology which includes Nanoparticles for LEDs, Solar cells, plasma display panel, hyperthermia, MRI contrast agent, targeted drug delivery etc.
