Mohammad Hussain K. Rabinal has been working as an Associate Professor at the Department of Physics, Karnatak University, Dharwad, Karnataka State, India. He received the B.S. degree in physics in 1983 from Karnatak University, Dharwad, and from the same university he completed the M.S. degree in solid state physics in the year 1988. He obtained the Ph.D. degree in physics in the year 1994 from Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Science, India, for working on amorphous semiconductors. In 1994-1995, he worked as a Research Associate at the Dept. of Physics Indian Institute of Science, India. From 1995 to 1997, he has been a Visiting Fellow at the Department of Materials and Interfaces, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, in the field of charge transport in photovoltaic materials. From 1997 to 1999 as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Solid State Electronics, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Bombay, India, and worked on porous silicon devices and their charge transport measurements. In 1999 he joined as Lecturer in the dept. of Physics, Karnatak University, Dharwad, India, and presently working as an Associate Professor. He worked as a Commonwealth Fellow from 2002 to 2003 at the Center for Molecular and Nanoscale Electronics, University of Durham, UK, on OLED materials. His current interests are (i) molecular grafting of semiconductor surfaces and charge transport through molecular junctions, (ii) synthesis and assembly of semiconductor nanoparticles for photovoltaic applications, (iii) graphene-nanoparticle composites for memresistors, (iv) conductive composites of polymers, (v) metal-structured supercapacitors, and (vi) chemical bath assembly of nanoparticles for heterojunction solar cells.
