Nano Functional Materials (NFM) Laboratory started functioning at the Department of Physics, CUSAT during the Fall of 2010. Dr. M Junaid Bushiri heads the NFM laboratory and there are 9 active researchers working in this group. The main objective of the NFM research group is to study and develop nanostructured functional materials that can be used for Photocatalytic water purification, Nanophosphors, Bio-photonics, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Transparent conductive oxides, etc. Studies on biological crystalline materials (Kidney stones) are additionally studied with a particular to know its structure and chemical composition.
