The Ion Beam & Nanomaterials Laboratory (IBNL) belongs to an experimental research group in the School of Physical Sciences (SPS) at National Institute of Science Education and Research (NISER) Bhubaneswar, a research and teaching unit of DAE, Government of India.

                The Research theme of IBNL Group @ NISER is to fabricate patterned nanostructures using various lithographic techniques, thin film deposition techniques, and embedded nanostructures using energetic low and swift heavy ion beam implantation and study its photonic behaviors, the control, interaction, understanding, and application of light at the nanoscale, which lead to the design of plasmonic devices with optimized properties. The physics question along with its application, we intend to address include:

  • Anti-reflection at the sub-wavelength nanostructures for plasmonic and solar cell application.
  • Ion-matter interaction of energetic low and swift heavy ion beams for embedded nanostructure.
  • Light manipulation at sub-gap between nanorods and nanoparticles.
  • Plasmonic modes in high aspect ratio nanostructures in the visible wavelength region to explore their performance for sensing applications.
