To,                                                                                                                              Date: 02.08.2008
            The Coordinator,
            UGC Visiting Team for 11th Plan Proposal
            of D.D.U. Gorakhpur University, Gorakhpur.

Dear Sir,
       Kindly refer to the proposals submitted to the University Grants Commission, New Delhi for 11th Plan 2007-2012 by D.D.U. Gorakhpur University (page 36, Table 6.6) in which a new  University Centre of  Nano Science Research has been proposed.
            The requirements to this centre are as follows:

            1. X-Rays Diffractometer (XRD).
2. High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscope (HRTEM).
3. Atomic Force Microscope (AFM).
4. Vibrating Sample Magnetometer or Super Conducting Quantum   Interferometer Device (SQUID).
5. Equipments for Measurement of Electrical and Optical properties.

 All these will require more than 10.00 Crore and some funds for building also.
Different Departments and Scientists involved in this centre will be as follows:

1. Department of Chemistry.
                                    Prof. I. Das
                                    Prof. N.B. Singh (Retired)
                                    Prof. Gurdip Singh (Retired)
                                    Prof. S.K. Sengupta
                                    Prof. B.P. Barnawal
                                    Dr. A.K. Tiwari
                                    Dr. I.P.S. Kapoor
                                    Dr. S.S.D. Mishra (DST Young Scientist)
2. Department of Physics
                                    Prof. J.P. Chaturvedi
                                    Dr. S.N. Tiwari
                                    Dr. Ravi Sankar Singh

                                    Dr. Lallan Yadav
3. Department of Biotechnology

Dr. Sarad Mishra

In addition, individual members of other Science Departments of the University, Affiliated Colleges and other research originations of this region will also be the effective users of this facility.



Nano materials have numerous commercial and technological applications, including environmental and analytical chemistry, drug delivery, bioencapsulation and electronic, optical and mechanical devices. In this region, there is no such type of centre. Therefore, there is a need for a University Centre of Nano Science Research in this region.
