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 in April 2001. He carried out his doctoral research work at the Banaras Hindu University in the Department of Physics under the supervision of 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) AB5 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; later on he joined NPL as Scientist B in 2007. Currently, he is working as Scientist in the Alternative Energy Materials Group of Advanced Materials and Devices 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). Recently, he has been selected for the APAM (Aisa-Pacific Academy of Materials) Fellow (Meeting held on April 12, 2017, Sendai, Japan). He has more than 15 years of research experience in the field of Experimental Solid State and Condensed Matter Physics: Materials Science (Luminescent Materials: Bulk and Nanophosphors), Nanotechnology, 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), luminescent 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, field emission displays and luminomagnetic nanophosphors as nanoprobe for drug delivery and external magnetic tracking applications. Three students are pursuing their Ph. D. degree and one student submitted PhD thesis under his supervision. He has published more than 110 papers in SCI journals and written one book chapter. He has one Indian patent, which was granted in 2006 (Indian Patent IP No.-202340). His research work has more than 3000 citations. His work on Graphene quantum dots has achieved more than 900 citations after its publication in 2012. During a recent survey of Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India for the years 2009-2014, his work is considered among the top ten ranks in various disciplines of science and engineering; Material sciences (6th), Chemical Engineering(5th), Engineering(5th) and Chemistry(10th). His well cited publications are in Nano Letters, Advanced Materials, Small, ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces, Nanoscale, Inorganic Chemistry, Journal of Physical Chemistry C, Green Chemistry, Scientific Report (Nature Publication), ACS Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering, Applied Physics Letters, Carbon and Journal of Materials Chemistry A, Journal of Material Chemistry C, Dalton Transactions, Nanotechnology etc.
