About CAFM


At Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Kolkata, the Centre for Advanced Functional Materials (CAFM) has a special mission to foster collaborative, interdisciplinary research and education in the science and technological applications of advanced solid state and soft materials. With an emphasis on nanoscience and nanotechnology, the research areas of CAFM include hybrid solar cells; fuel cells; strongly correlated materials; polymer and supramolecular delivery vehicles; materials for environmental remediation. CAFM coordinates to foster advanced research towards synthesis of smart materials, structure-property elucidation, device fabrication and cutting-edge applications. Apart from establishing collaboration between researchers within and outside IISER Kolkata, CAFM promotes technology transfer of developed materials and devices. The faculty members of CAFM provide research training to BS-MS, IPhD students, PhD scholars and postdoctoral fellows, and conduct interdisciplinary courses on advanced functional materials.
