Santanu Jana holds a doctoral degree from Indian Association for the Cultivation of Sciences, Kolkata in the area of quantum dots and nanotechnology from the Dept. of Materials Science. After Ph.D, he had spent 1 year in Singapore, and 4 year in Laboratoire de Physique des Solides (LPS), France as CNRS post-doctoral research fellow and Marie Curie Individual research fellow. From January 2018 he has joined as Post-doctoral fellow under Prof. Elvira Fortunato in CENIMAT-i3N, Universidade Nova de Lisboa. Currently He is working as an Assistant Researcher position in CENIMAT.
He has 10+ year of research experience in Colloidal Nanochemistry and Nanotechnology which covers design and synthesis of different colloidal quantum dots, doped quantum dots, halide perovskite nanocrystals, solution based self-assembly and application in opto-electronic devices. He received Marie-Curie Individual Fellowship in his research work on 2D- chalcogenide semiconductor nanoplatelets for soft-matter and their applications. Currently he is working on different perovskite quantum dots and their application in smart electronics (TFT, Memory etc.). He has published several scientific papers and review article as an author, co-author and corresponding author in very high-impact peer-reviewed journal. He has presented research works in several national and international conferences
