The research interest of Kaustav Banerjee's group include nanometer scale issues in CMOS VLSI as well as circuits and systems issues in emerging nanoelectronics. He is currently involved in exploring the physics, technology, and applications of carbon nanomaterials for next-generation green electronics.
The Madhukar Group's research has revolved around electronic response (electrical and optical) of synthesized materials and structures in reduced (two, one, and zero) dimensions and their potential use in electronic and optoelectronic devices for information sensing, processing, imaging and computing technologies. The emphasis for some time has been on three dimensionally confined (i.e. zero dimensional) nanostructures called quantum dots and the scope in recent years has expanded to include biochemical materials (peptides, proteins) and hybrid semiconductor-biomolecular nanostructures for biomedical applications, particularly neural prostheses.
