Bipin Kumar Gupta

Principal Scientist

CSIR-National Physical Laboratory




Dr. Bipin Kumar Gupta obtained his B. Sc. (Physics Hons.), M. Sc. (Solid State Physics) in first division from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India in 1996 and 1998, respectively. He was awarded the CSIR-SRF fellowship of April 2001. He carried out his doctoral research work at the Banaras Hindu University in the Department of Physics under Professor O. N.
Srivastava”. He obtained his Ph. D. in the year 2004. He was lecturer at Department of Physics in Lucknow University, Lucknow from October 19, 2022 to August 2, 2007; he joined NPL as scientist B in 2007. Currently, he is working as Senior Scientist in the Photonic Materials Metrology Sub Division.
He is a recipient of INDO-US fellowship award in Physical Sciences (2010-11). He spent one year in Rice University as an IUSSTF Fellow (Indo-US Science and Technology Forum, New Delhi) from 1-10-2022 to 30-09-2022 with Prof. P.M. Ajayan at Rice University, USA. He visited several countries like Ukraine (2003), JAPAN (2004), Taiwan (2005) and Turkey (2005). Recently, he has selected for the APAM (Aisa- Pacific Academy of Material) Fellow/Academician (Meeting held on April 12, 2017, Sendai, Japan) and he recently received prestigious MRSI Medal-2018. He is recently appointed as nominated member for the revise the specification of Bi-florescent features in Indian Passport at ISP, Nashik. He has more than 17 years of research experience in the field of Experimental Solid State and Condensed Matter Physics: Materials Science (Luminescent Materials:
Bulk and Nanophosphors), Nanotechnology, Bio-nanotechnology and Hydrogen Energy: Storage and its applications in Hydrogen Fuelled Vehicles and Devices.

Area of Interests

His current research interest is focused on development of luminescent materials (bulk/nano), luminescent graphene quantum dots and 2-D new emerging materials for applications in luminescent security ink, security codes, optoelectronic devices, biological fluorescence labeling, fluorescence quenching, field emission displays and luminomagnetic nanophosphors as nano probe for drug delivery and external magnetic tracking applications. Three students are pursuing their Ph. D. degree
and one student gets PhD completed under his supervision. He has published more than 130 papers in SCI journals and written one book chapters. He has one Indian patent, which was granted in 2006 (Indian Patent IP No.-202340) and four patents applied. He has developed two technology, one based on luminescent materials has already transferred and another technology based on CVD grown
graphene is under progress. His research work has more than 4400 citations.
