Brief Biodata:

Dr. Bipin Kumar Gupta obtained his B. Sc. (Physics Hons.), M. Sc. (Solid State Physics) in first division from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India in 1996 and 1998, respectively. He was awarded the CSIR-SRF fellowship of April 2001. He carried out his doctoral research work at the Banaras Hindu University in the Department of Physics under Professor O. N. Srivastava on "Investigations on the Synthesis, Characterization and Hydrogenation Behaviour of Hydrogen Storage Materials: (a) Graphitic Nanofibre (b) Sodium-Aluminum Hydride (c) AB 5 type alloy” . He obtained his Ph. D. in the year 2004. He was lecturer at Department of Physics in Lucknow University, Lucknow from October 19, 2006 to August 2, 2007; he joined NPL as scientist B in 2007. Currently he is working as Scientist in the   Luminescent Materials and Devices Group, Materials of Physics and Engineering Division. He is a recipient of INDO-US fellowship in Physical Sciences (2010-11). He spent one year in Rice University as an IUSSTF Fellow (Indo-US Science and Technology Forum, New Delhi) from 1-10-2010 to 30-09-2011 with Prof. P.M. Ajayan at Rice University, USA. He visited several countries like Ukraine (2003), JAPAN (2004), Taiwan (2005) and Turkey (2005).

He has 14 years of research experience in the field of Experimental Solid State and Condensed Matter Physics: Materials Science, Nanotechnology, Chemical Engineering (Luminescent Materials: Bulk and Nanophosphors), Bio-nanotechnology and Hydrogen Energy: Storage and its applications in Hydrogen Fueled Vehicles and Devices.

His current research interest is focused on development of luminescent materials (bulk/nano), graphene, quantum dots and 2-D new emerging materials for applications in invisible luminescent security ink, security codes, optoelectronic devices, biological fluorescence labeling, fluorescence quenching, luminescent paint, field emission displays and luminomagnetic nanophosphors as nano probe for drug delivery and external magnetic tracking applications. Two students are parsing their Ph. D. degree under his supervision. He has published more than 72 papers in SCI journals and written one book chapters. He has one Indian patent, which was granted in 2006( Indian Patent IP No.-202340) . His research work has more than 1230 citations. His well cited publications are in Nano Letters, Advanced Materials, Small, ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces , Inorganic Chemistry, Journal of Physical Chemistry C, Green Chemistry, Applied Physics Letters, Carbon and Journal of Material Chemistry C.
