Research Summary

Mahale Research Image

Artificially designed 3 dimensional materials that are chemically bonded in a periodic structure at the nanoscale have the potential of unveiling new exotic properties which can be tuned for several applications. My research aims at designing templates to realize such 3D meta-materials, explore means of passivating surfaces of these nanostructures and characterizing their properties to decipher the underlying fundamental phenomena.
