Name : Dr. Bhupendra Singh

Destination: Assistant Professor

Courses taught: Numerical Analysis & Programming, Classical Physics & Relativity, Space Physics

Specialization: Atomic and Molecular Collision Physics

Number of Papers in Journals: 14


Brief intro:
My research interest is basically focused on the instrumentation and experimental development in the field of atomic and molecular collision physics that includes X-ray spectroscopy, electron backscattering, multiple ionization process, and Auger spectroscopy. Fabrication of a Time-of-Flight mass spectrometer with position sensitive capability and various types of energy resolved electron spectrometers like Velocity map imaging and magnetic bottle spectrometer are the prime objectives of my current and future research work. Our work has very important applications in many areas of science and technology, for example, astrophysics, planetary science, radiation damage studies, medical physics and computing.
At present we are developing the step-up for study the fragmentation dynamics of biomolecules and clusters under the impact of ions and photons.
