Expert Areas : Phosphors, Luminescence, Light Emitting Diodes, Thermoluminescence
Dr Ankush Kumar Bedyal has completed PhD in Material Science/Physics from School of Physics, Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University, Katra, Jammu & Kashmir, India. He has worked as Post Doctorate Fellow at Department of Physics, University of the Free State, Bloemfontein, South Africa.
Dr Bedyal has more than 8 years of experience in research. He has published more than 34 research papers in reputed journals and proceedings of International and National Conferences. He has presented his work at many national and international conference in India and Abroad.
He has delivered a couple of invited lectures in national conferences, India. He has worked in the field of luminescence properties of phosphors particularly, Photoluminescence, Thermoluminescence, Cathodoluminescence for their applications in lighting, White Light-Emitting Diodes, Displays, Dosimetry and on the modification of luminescence, optical and structural properties of phosphors by Swift Heavy Ion irradiation. His current research mainly focuses on the synthesis and optimization of the up and down-conversion nanophosphors for light-emitting diodes, solar cells, display panels, and dosimetry applications, material modification using swift heavy ion irradiation, nano phosphor composites for photocatalytic activity.
Dr Bedyal is an active reviewer of several SCI journals like Journal of Alloys and Compound (Elsevier), Journal of Materials and Design (Elsevier), Materials Science and Engineering B (Elsevier), Journal of Radiation Effects and defects in solids (Taylor & Francis), Materials Chemistry and Physics (Elsevier), Journal of Material Research and Technology (Elsevier), Rare Metals (Springer).
