Chetan Jariwala
Scientific Officer - G

Mr. Chetan Jariwala completed his M.Sc. in Applied Physics from M S University of Baroda, Vadodara. He joined IPR in 2001 as Scientist in the Surface Physics Group of FCIPT division. At FCIPT, he was initially involved in surface characterization of various samples using X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) and Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES) techniques. Later on he was engaged in thin film deposition work for solar cell applications, fusion reactor materials development activities and RF plasma application for agriculture.  

He has extensive experience for thin film processing techniques such as Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapour Deposition (PECVD), Electron beam (e-beam) evaporation and Thermal evaporation processes. He has also excellent hand-on experience for synthesis of nano-sized oxide ceramic powders, SiC ceramic composite fabrication and RF plasma treatment of wheat seeds for crop yield improvement.  

He also routinely supervises B. Tech / M. Sc. / M. Tech students for their final year project work being done at IPR. His research interests include RF plasma applications in agricultural, novel applications of oxide nanoparticles and composite applications for societal benefits.      

He joined the IPR Outreach group in June 2022.
