Current Research interest and area working on
Plasma physics is one of the very interesting subjects because if its wide range of applications in astrophysics, plasma processing industries, Fusion energy source, life sciences etc. A wide spectrum of plasma state makes its wide applicability in multidisciplinary fields. In recent years, the non-thermal (cold) plasma has been a center of attraction of research because of its wide applicability. Non-thermal (cold) plasma is a rich source of reactive species, high energy electrons and charged particles. It has the potential to be eﬀectively used for environment applications, biological and medical applications, sterilization of thermo sensitive materials, food and fruits treatment, drinking and waste-water treatment etc. For better future, it is necessary the fundamental as well as applied studies of low temperature plasmas. Based on my expertise in various electric discharges (DC and RF) and their characterization with help of various diagnostic tools, it would be easy to study the chemical eﬀects induced by cold plasma on (1) plant growth and germination, (b) waste water and drinking water treatment, (c) photosynthesis process in crops, and (4) vegetable and fruits storage capacity. Apart from these topics, plasma catalyst would be a central research area in future. At present, I am working on electron plasma gun and its application to the dusty plasma.
