Research at SCNN

At SCNN, we are committed to achieving excellence in nanoscience research and to ensuring that our research contributes to societal well-being.

We seek to provide a creative and supportive environment in which ideas are generated and can flourish. The diversity of our research across physical, chemical, biological and medical sciences means that in addition to fundamental research, we are also well-positioned to make significant contributions to the society by developing affordable smart solutions for health care, energy and environmental issues.

In addition to research activities going on in-house, we have developed a network of scientists, medical doctors, engineers and entrepreneurs to work in cooperation to tackle challenges that can only be addressed by a truly multi-disciplinary team. Our aim is to develop a global network for research and innovation and provide leadership in developing affordable smart-technology.

Interdisciplinary Research

At SCNN, interdisciplinary research is highly encouraged. We believe in tackling cross-disciplinary challenges and create a shared vision in the areas of material synthesis and application. The four major areas of research are:

  • Advanced nanomaterials: Synthesis and characterization
  • Point-of-care diagnostic devices
  • Environmental pollution monitoring systems


Advanced nanomaterials

Due to their unique properties such as size, shape and surface functions, advanced nanomaterials are finding applications in the areas of biomedicine, energy efficiency, point-of-care diagnostic devices, sensors, electronics, photonics etc.

At SCNN, we are devoted to develop advanced functional materials with fascinating properties specifically with biomedical applications in mind. Our team of researchers ( Dr. Mandar Shirolkar) have extensive experience in synthesis and characterization of novel functional materials and currently are involved in projects specifically intended in designing materials for biological applications.

Point-of-care diagnostic devices

Medical diagnostics and monitoring devices serve to diagnose and investigate the causes of various diseases or functional disorders.

At SCNN, researchers will work with industry/hospital to focus on developing better, faster, and more affordable diagnostic devices.

Environmental pollution monitoring systems

Environment monitoring is a data collecting and analyzing process actually. Many systems have been developed for environment monitoring, such as systems for gas pollution monitoring and systems for water pollution monitoring.

We help people & companies make better air quality decisions by providing them with cost effective and reliable instrumentation and information. Our sensor-based instruments and environmental monitoring systems are used widely in outdoor ambient applications for compliance, non compliance and special purpose monitoring.
