Dr. Gurpreet Singh’s expertise lies in synthesis and mechanical characterization
of individual carbon nanotube and polymer-derived SiCN nanowire based devices.
He has developed various individual carbon nanotube based devices in the last
- CNT nano-knife
- CNT-Force sensor and
- CNT-sphere tissue phantom.
His research has been published in Applied Physics Letters, Nanotechnology,
Actamaterialia, Journal of Biomedical Optics, Materials Letters, Sensors and
Actuators: A Physical and Nano letters. His research on carbon nanotubes and
SiCN has been has been highlighted in Canada Broadcasting Corporation (CBC),
Science Daily, NIST Technical Beat, Nanowerks and Virtual Journal of Nanoscience
He also has extensive experience in working with teams involving scientists
from universities and national labs that include optoelectronics division at
NIST-boulder and Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) at ORNL. He
has won the CNMS user facility award (as co-PI) two times. He is also the recipient
of Big-12 faculty fellowship for 2010-1011.
