Dr. R. Prasanth

Research Area

Dr. Prasanth Ravindran received Ph.D from Eindhoven University of Technology for the thesis entitled “Photonic switching in III-V nanostructures”. He pursued his post doctoral research at Peter Debye institute at Utrecht University. His invention of resonance enhancement of second harmonic generation and polariton confinement in nanocavity leads to the development of polariton lasers. His current research interest is development of one dimensional and zero dimensional nano-systems for energy conversion. He developed super hydrophilic nanotube surfaces that enhances the heatflux less super heat that enhances the efficiency of direct steam generators. He published research articles in leading international journals such as Renewable and sustainable Energy Review, Applied Physics Letters, Physical Review Letters, Advanced Functional Materials, Electrochemica Acta, Journal of Electrochemical society Journal of Quantum Electronics, Journal of power sources, Journal of colloids and interface science etc and also presented papers in many leading conferences in Netherlands, Germany, France, Belgium, United States, Japan and Singapore. He also serves as reviewer of many leading scientific journals.
