ABOUT THE CENTRE
The Centre of excellence for Research (COER) at PP Savani University is a multidisciplinary, collaborative body of research professionals. The centre offers organisational environment that strive for and succeed in developing high standards of conduct in various fields of research, innovation or learning. The plethora of efforts made my University come together on goal that intended to generate scientific excellence with technological innovation or to frame arguments for the policy support for regional development.
The Centre aims at:
- Resonance with international research
- Implication of the research in the local perspective
- Identifying relevant research agenda
- Inculcation of critical thinking in higher education
- Instigating constructive debate in the policy making
- To prepare scientific manpower for the country
Identify the significantmultidisciplinary areas of science and engineeringto create the state-of-the-art infrastructure facilities, which include laboratories, equipment and supporting staffs for the smooth operation of various collaborative research programs and Ph.D. programs in number of disciplines.
- Nanomaterials ( 0D, 1D and 2D)
- Photothermic Materials
- LASER based Actuators
- Soft Robotics
- Polymeric Materials
- Microbial Studies
A nanometre is one millionth of a millimetre or approximately 100,000 times smaller than the thickness of a sheet of paper. In recent decades, the use of nanomaterials has seen a rise and are frequently used to innovate new commercial products of wide range. The COER@PPSU is actively engaged in the synthesis of a wide range of nanomaterials which includes Graphene, graphene oxide, carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, doped nano materials, polymer coated nanomaterial, functionalized nanomaterials etc. The synthesised materials are further investigated for the photo-thermal performance and used in the development of remote actuation based materials for the soft robotics.
