In the area of renewable energy in particular Dr. Gondal group's interests are cutting edge and quite multifarious in pace with the rapid technological advancement in this area. The following is the itemized research projects carried out under Dr. M. Gondal's supervision in the area of energy harvesting, energy storage, thermoelectric devices, photodetectors, dust repellant surfaces and clean water under the umbrella of renewable energy under the KACARE fellowship. There are currently 5 Ph.D students and 2 M.S. students working in the following interdisciplinary renewable energy areas. In addition to our involvement in renewable energy area, our group is actively involved in environmental research like, Oil water separation using hierarchically textured surfaces, Photo-catalytic degradation of organic dyes and bacteria removal from water, Photocatalytic conversion of CO2 into value added hydrocarbons, and laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) for elemental and environmental sample analysis.
