Current Research Interest and Area Working On

  • Development of electron gun operating at fore pump pressure. This gun will be utilized for electron beam welding applications. Ultimately, I want to make cheaper electron beam welding machine.
  • Interaction of electron beam with dusty plasma to and study it’s effect the effect on crystal melting and basic wave properties.
  • Synthesis of diamond by microwave plasma of 2.45GHZ and 915MHZ. I am doing it from commercial point of view.
  • Development of plasma rotating electrode process (PREP) to generate highly spherical powders.
  • Development of induction plasma reactor for ferro-chrome and ferro-nickle smelting and reduction.
