Academic interests

Growth of single crystals and preparation of nanophosphor’s for electron paramagnetic resonance and thermo-luminescence dosimetry applications. Currently, I am working on the project, NanoDos - funded by the Research Council of Norway in collaboration with Inter-University Accelerator Centre (IUAC), India.

Background

Dr. Ravikumar Nattudurai has obtained his PhD (Physics) from Anna University, Chennai, India for his research work in ‘Growth and characterization of borate single crystals with near-biological tissue equivalency for dosimetric applications. He was employed as a Project fellow at GRD Centre for Materials Research, PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore, India (2014-2017) and engaged in research on oxide single crystals for radiation dosimetry. Then he was appointed as Assistant Professor at Dr. NGP Arts and Science College, Coimbatore, India, in 2019. He initiated the research on personnel and clinical dosimetry, LED and non-linear optics. He has contributed about eight research publications in reputed peer-review journals and presented his work at various international conferences.
