Chadrasekhar Loka joined INL as a Research Fellow in the Nanostructured Solar Cells Group. His primary research focus is the development of advanced solid-state lithium-ion rechargeable batteries using physical vapor deposition techniques.
Chadrasekhar received his Master's degree in Physics from Sri Venkateswara University, India (2011), and his PhD in Materials Science from Kongju National University, South Korea (2015). His research has mainly focused on the development of nanocomposite silicon-based anode materials for high-energy-density lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. Additionally, he has investigated thin-film-based photoanodes for photoelectrochemical water splitting for hydrogen production. His scholarly contributions include over 30 research articles and one patent.
