A Brief Biography


Dr. Rudra Sankar Dhar is a postdoctoral fellow in Nanotechnology and nanomaterial research in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Alberta. His present research focuses to develop novel nano-smart-materials and its allied technology to be implemented along with normal glasses in commercial and/or residential building and structures.

He acquired PhD in field of Nanotechnology engineering from the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo, Canada in August 2014. His research involves nano-quantum devices, materials and technology. He established cryogenic scanning voltage microscopy based on atomic force microscope and other related techniques for nanoscopic surface profiling and mapping of static and dynamic charge carriers (electrons and holes) and their transport in operating nano-and-micro regime devices.

He obtained Master of Philosophy (M. Phil) degree in Microelectronics engineering from the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK in 2006. In his research he was involved in characterization and modelling of individual sub-micron range MOS/MOSFET devices for CMOS operation. He used TCAD based Silvaco and Supreme tools for simulation and modelling of the devices. He achieved Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) degree from the Department of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering, CVRCE, Utkal University, India in 2002.
