About Dr. J.P. Singh

J.P. Singh received his PhD in the field of scanning probe microscopic studies of ion beam irradiated semiconducting surface in 2002 from Inter University Accelerator Centre, New Delhi (Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi). He was at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, NY working on the field of applications of glancing angle deposited sculptured thin films for about 3 and half years. He joined Department of Physics at IIT Delhi in 2005. His current research includes photomechanical properties of carbon nanotubes, glancing angle deposition, optical and mechanical properties of metal oxides, nanomechanical properties of nanorods and nanospring structures, and nanofluidics
