Naidu V. Seetala
Edward Bouchet Endowed Professor in Physics, Grambling State University.
Material Science and Nano-technology: Ultra high temperature ceramic nanocomposites, Polymer composites - nanoporosity using positron annihilation lifetime spectrometer, Nanocatalysts using sol-gel/oil-drop methods for syn-gas conversion for higher alkanes, and hydrogen production using WGS reactions for fuel cell applications, and Magnetic nanoparticles for storage media applications.
Established state of the art research facilities at GSU including Positron Annihilation Lifetime Spectroscopy, Magneto-sputter thin film coater, Vibrating Sample Magnetometer, SQUID magnetometer, Environmental SEM with EDXS, X-ray Diffraction (XRD), and Mossbauer spectroscopy.
Obtained Post-Doctoral Research training at the University of Texas at Arlington for about 3 years after completing Ph.D. in Physics from the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Calcutta, India.
Obtained research experience as visiting scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, NASA
Glenn Research Center, and Wright Patterson Air Force Base, the MINT center, University
of Alabama at Tuscaloosa, and as an adjunct professor at Louisiana Tech University.
Received funding as a PI for several research grants supported by NASA, DOE, NSF,
ONR, and AFOSR. He has over 70 research publications in refereed journals. His NASA
research has been highlighted on CBS KNOE TV8 Evening/Night News, and his Ultra High
Temperature Ceramics research has been highlighted in “The News Star”,
Special Issue, Monroe. As per the “Research Gate Spotlight”, his publications reached 200 citations and 400 reads just in last year.
