Consortium for Advanced Research Based on New Carbon (CARBON-C)

An initiative was taken to establish a major international collaboration in the area of carbon based materials and devices primarily involving US and Indian universities and research institutes. The idea is to actively intervene in the process of emergence and development of carbon as the next generation material that can potentially replace silicon.

Participants were from different Indian institutes (IITs, CSIR labs, NIFFT, SINP, and IIEST) including Prof. AmitabhaGhosh, Senior Scientist, INSA and former Director, IIT, Kharagpur, Professor Prof. Ajoy Kumar Ray, Director, IIEST, Shibpur and Prof. Marc Madou, University of California, Irvine among others.
