PhD (Academy of Scientific and Innovative Research)
Research Interests: Optoelectronics, Photovoltaics, Optical Sensors, and Luminescent Nanomaterials
Professor Kaur completed her doctoral research on optoelectronic applications of luminescent metal-organic framework (MOF) materials from the Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIR-CSIO), Chandigarh. Her research interests include optoelectronics, photovoltaics, luminescent nanomaterials, and optical sensors. She has two years of teaching experience at Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar. At Ahmedabad University, Professor Kaur intends to work on the application of quantum dots (QDs) and MOFs in light-emitting devices and optical sensors.
As part of her doctoral work, Professor Kaur has explored the use of high luminescence MOF composites (combining the inherently stable emission intensities of luminescent MOFs with electronic conductivity and electroluminescence of organometallic complexes) to facilitate the development of light-emitting devices with enhanced performance. Professor Kaur intends to explore the applicability of MOF-QD composites in light-emitting devices and optoelectronic sensing. IN particular, she plans to incorporate guest molecules within an MOF which enables the realisation of new luminescent materials with very high emission intensities at desirable wavelengths.
Professor Kaur will be developing and teaching courses in electronics, digital design, and electronics materials.
