Dr. Saroj Kumari, Scientist obtained her B. Sc. (Physics) in 1999 and M.Sc. (Physics) in 2001 from Dayalbagh Educational Institute (DEI), Dayalbagh, Agra. She has completed Ph.D. in the field of solar hydrogen production from DEI, Dayalbagh, Agra in the year 2008. At CSIR-NPL, She is working on development of various carbon products from coal tar pitch such as QI free pitch, mesophase pitch, mesocarbon microbeads, high density graphite, carbon fiber, carbon foam, flexible free standing carbon paper, metal reinforced graphite composites, needle coke, for various mechanical, electrical and energy (Li ion battery) applications. She is involved in various R&D projects funded by CSIR, DST, BARC and Industries. She has also involved in the transfer of two technologies for commercial application of the project prepared at CSIR-NPL. These technologies are based on the synthesis of low cost pitch derived carbon precursor material useful in the development of high density graphite and other products that can be efficiently used in various applications. She has published 20 papers in different SCI Journals and one Indian patent filed (DEL No.- 1567, 2014).
