Nandini Bhandaru, a PhD student at IIT Kharagpur has been recently conferred with European Materials Research Society’s Young Scientist Award at EMRS 2016 Spring Meeting Lille France. 


Nandini, who is working at Instability and Soft Patterning laboratory has won the award based on her outstanding contribution to material science and nano technology, particularly nano patterning of soft films and surfaces. Nandini’s area of doctoral research is on nanofabrication including soft-Lithography, thin film dewetting, polymer blend films and self-assembly.


Topographically patterned polymer films and surfaces find wide application in various areas such as organic electronics organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), optoelectronic devices, thin film transistors (TFTs), plastic solar cells, biological sensors microfluidics, smart and super adhesives, data storage media, lab-on-a-chip devices, surfaces for nan
