“My area of interest is Solar Photovoltaics and i am working on solar cell electrical modelling and its parameter degradation over time. It can be extended to study the effect of environment and other factors contributing Solar Panel performance degradation.”
Praneeth was exploring the frontiers of Internet of things by researching at the cross section of materials science, chemistry and engineering. He was working on developing innovative sensors for detecting toxic gases such as carbon monoxide. He was currently working on synthesizing magnetic gold nanoparticles that would be used to create ‘smart polymer films’ to produce a sensor that can change color on detecting traces of toxic gases and alert people of the impending danger well in advance.
“The aim of my work is to compare mixed signal neurons with analog neurons. I am designing a low power ADC in cadence virtuoso 45nm process. The ADC will be used to interface crossbar array with digital neuron to realize neuromorphic circuit.”
Vrushali assisted in a research project named-“Concrete Breakout Behaviour of Embed Plates with Welded Deformed Reinforcing Bars”. She carried out analysis using the software-ABAQUS by changing parameters in order to capture concrete breakout failure modes. The models were calibrated with the data obtained from the experimental tests conducted previously. Meanwhile she also gained some lab floor experience by working with a team on-“Seismic Behaviour of Concrete Wall under Thermal effects “.
