BIOPHYSICS AND NANOTECHNOLOGY LABORATORY (BNL)

BNL is situated in the department of Physics, IIT (BHU), Varanasi headed by Dr. Avanish Parmar. An interdisciplinary group working in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology with major emphasis on health, energy, and environmental application. The main focus of the group is to understand the physical interaction between biomolecules and nanomaterials like Quantum dots, 2D- materials to synthesize functional hybrid materials for various application related to health care (biosensors, medical diagnostic devices) , energy (Photovolatic solar cells, OLED), and environment (gas sensors, toxic metal detection). Our primary goal is to give inexpensive technology to the society.
