Dr.  Mukhopadhyay did his Post doctoral work at the University of Karlsruhe in the Center for Functional Nanostructures, Germany from Jan. 2002 to Oct.2003. He is also a JSPS Post doc. Fellow at the Shinshu University, Japan (Oct.1999-Oct. 2001) and a Post doc. Fellow at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel (Sept. 1997 to Sept. 1999). Research associate IIT, MUMBAI (Dec.1996 to Aug.1997). He completed his doctoral thesis from the Dept. of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai, India. (Jan.1992 to Oct.1996) titled ‘Photoelectrochemical studies of electrochemically synthesized lead and doped lead oxide thin film’.

Dr. Mukhopadhyay has been awarded with the CSIR Rural Tech Award 2010 (Team Member) and also the Vikram Sarabhai Award 2006 (Team member).

His laboratory is perusing research on the development of new materials in the form of powder and thin film which are efficient for harvesting solar energy, and highly active electrode material for Li ion battery. The group has been working on the photoactive nonstoichiometric semiconducting binary or ternary oxide, chalcogenides, nitrides, phosphjdes. Thin film conducting polymer and carbon materials are also considered for the same purpose. The primary area of their current research is on the physical/electrochemical deposition of Si and Ge thin films on different substrates and their complete structural characterization. Since Si and Ge are also very promising negative electrode material for high capacity Li ion battery, the Li ion intercalation process in Si and Ge are looked at the molecular level. The serious concern of fragmentation of the Si and Ge material due to huge volume change by the intercalation of Li ion is dealt with by studying their structural stability in various composite matrices. Another area of interest is the development of very high surface active nano-structured oxide material for the energy conversion and storage applications.
