SRM Institute of Science and Technology (SRMIST) have taken various research initiatives over the years to mobilize the available knowledge resources for research and also, to come up strongly with innovative solutions.
All the research centers of SRMIST function in a cooperative manner to identify and initiate applied as well as cross-disciplinary research projects, create and combine patentable Intellectual Property (IP) components, design and develop prototypes & proof of concepts, manage and market products & solutions (through know-how transferred incubated companies), win and work to deliver funded research projects.
Established a centre for “Development of Materials for Fabrication of Solar-photovoltaics and Lithium ion battery” through MNRE, Govt. of India and Developed anode materials for Li-ion battery with a capacity of 250 mAh/g
Built a high quality scientific program through “SRM-DBT Partnership Platform for Contemporary Research Services and Skill Development in Advanced Life Sciences Technologies
Observed a a surprising breakthrough in the stability of Pt-based alloy nanocatalysts to resolve the issues of lower activity and activity losses in Polyelectrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells
Achieved an enhancement in the optical absorption through surface texturing of quaternary inorganic compounds for thin solar cell application
Developed a graphene oxide based catalyst (CuO-TiO2-rGO) that gives 10 fold synergy of Hydrogen production in the diffused light for the first time.
Developed a solution processed CZTS based absorber layer for highly efficient thin film solar cell device
Developed Thermo-cells to convert low-grade waste heat into electricity with improved performance efficiency
Developed atomistic models for understanding the chirality induced charge transport as well as the nanoscale thermoelectricity in nanoelectronics devices
Developed inverse catalyst and π electron-based descriptor from first-principles
Developed diffusion matrices which guarantee to solve long standing problem of spurious oscillations and non-convergence to entropy solution in presence of discontinuity in the solution.
Developed heterogeneous catalysts for industrially useful organic transformation, especially for alkyne C-H activation
Devised a method to monitor pollution emitted by human activities in atmospheric boundary layer (ABL)
Research Day 2019 will be celebrated in SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Kattankulathur, Chennai at Dr. T. P. Ganesan Auditorium on February 28, 2019.
