Materials for Electronics, Optoelectronics and Nanotechnologies
2.19 | Ed. CEMOP


Suman Nandy awarded Ph.D in 2010 from Jadavpur University (India) in the area of materials science and nanotechnology from the Department of Physics. In March 2011, he has joined CENIMAT-i3N group as a Postdoctoral researcher and after that he is continuing his research program in this group till now.

He has 13+ years of research experience in the field of Materials Science and Nanotechnology. He is working in localized charge transport dynamics for different nanostructure materials and their interfaces through AFM technology for nano-engineering. He has been involved in several National and International projects. Recently he is attached with 1-D Neon project (Horizon 2020), for developing textile-based energy-harvester system. Currently, he is supervising the research work based on “Green and Sustainable wearable energy system”. He has published several scientific papers and review article as an author, co-author and corresponding author in very high-impact peer-reviewed journal. He has presented research works in several national and international conferences. He is a regular referee for several SCI journals.2.19.
