Shalini Tomar is working as a Senior Project Associate in Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research, Bhopal, India and former Research Associate in IIT, Kanpur. She did Ph.D. from Bundelkhand University, Jhansi, India. Her Ph.D. research work is in the area of Computational study of Two Dimensional (2D) materials.
I am working on excited state dynamics in transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) based nanostructures. Mainly, I am focused on simulating photo-induced charge transfer in these systems. Two dimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcodenides (TMDs) are promising materials for variety of applications such as solar cells, light emitting diodes (LED), photocatalysis, and optical switches. It has been observed that 2D TMDs can absorb incident solar light very efficiently, which reduces the thickness requirements of the related solar cell. We are interested in exploring the dependence of optical properties of TMD based nanostructure on their size and composition. Along with this, we are also investigating the mechanism of photo-induced charge transfer in heterostructure composed of TMD flakes and organic chromophores as well as metal clusters.
