सीएसआईआर- केंद्रीय विद्युतरसायन अनुसंधान संस्थान
(विद्युतरसायन के क्षेत्र में एक प्रमुख अनुसंधान एवं विकास संस्थान)
Electrochemical Materials Science Overview
This Division has specialized knowledge and skills in preparing thin films of transparent conducting oxides, transition metal chalcogenides and metal/alloy nitrides, which find extensive applications in opto-electronic, electrochromic, photoelectrochemical and biomedical implant devices. Expertise is available to prepare these thin films using various techniques like vacuum/electron beam evaporation, RF/DC magnetron sputtering, sol-gel spin coating, spray pyrolysis, and pulse and brush plating. Electrochemical and spectral characterization of semiconductor thin films and nano powders are being carried out. Preparation of porous silicon /oxide structures for sensors, photovoltaic and LED applications. Development of low cost materials for DSSC and fabrication of large area cells are the strengths of the Division.
