Research Interests


Prof. Dalvi has created materials Physics laboratory in the Physics department, dedicated to solid state ionics research. His lab is equipped with characterization facility for Li+ and Na+ ion glass-ceramics, NASICON-polymer hybrid composites for Li+/Na+ ion battery and supercapacitor applications. Recently, all-solid state battery and all-solid state supercapacitor fabrication and testing facilities have also been added.

Current research in progress:

  • Development and characterization of Na+ ion polymer-NASICON hybrids and Na+ ion batteries
  • Development and characterization of Li+ ion polymer-NASICON hybrids and Li+ ion batteries
  • Supercapacitor fabrication and testing
  • Ionic-Liquid glass composites for all-solid-state battery applications
  • Sol-gel derived NASICON based systems: fundamentals and applications
