Prashant K. Sharma
Prashant K. Sharma is presently working as an Assistant Professor at Department of Applied Physics, Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad, India. Prior to this, Sharma also worked as Postdoctoral Research Scientist at Nanotechnology Application Centre, Allahabad, India, after completing his D.Phil. degree work. Sharma has also worked in DST-Nanomission project for the development of novel magnetic nanoparticles for biomedical applications (bioimaging, drug delivery, MRI-contrast agents, and hyperthermia). Prior to this, he has also worked as JRF in CSIR-NMITLI project entitled Development of next generation plasma display panel and a 50 high definition (HDPDP) TV prototype, for development of efficient nanophosphors to be applicable in PDPs. During 19992001, he was the recipient of prestigious national scholarship for bright students and was also awarded with gold medal for acquiring highest marks in physics (X-rays) examinations during his M.S. degree and was also the recipient of Young Scientist Award. Sharma's area of research includes identification and optimization of the synthesis methods for the highly efficient bare and doped nanophosphors with and without capping and determination of the corresponding functional properties in view of efficient LEDs, photovoltaics, optoelectronics, display devices, and biomedical applications. Sharma has expertise in wide range of material characterization techniques, especially microscopic and spectroscopic techniques. During this period he has authored more than 70 peer-reviewed research papers in refereed international journals, 11 book chapters, and 8 patents to his credit.
