Research

My research work involves the quantum mechanical study of Diamondoids. Diamondoids are nanocaged diamond with hydrogen termination. We modify these diamondoids by means of doping and functionalization. We investigate the stability of these modified diamondoids and probe the electronic structure of these molecules under the framework of Density Functional Theory (DFT) using SIESTA. We also study the diamondoid based self-assembled monolayers on various metal stubstrates and investigate the emission properties using time dependent density functional theory (TDDFT).
