Welcome to the Ravindran Research Group Website

We are exploring the properties of scientifically and technologically important materials using accurate density functional calculations. Our band structure calculations are supplementary and complementary to the experimental activities going on with our collaborative partners in both India as well as abroad. Please explore the website to learn more about the ongoing projects in the laboratory and the people behind the physics.
