Prof K S Narayan is an academic researcher and a Professor at JNCASR. He is also have an administrative position as Dean (Research and Development) at JNCASR.
Specifically, his research interest presently is centredon (Organic-Polymer) Electronic Devices - Physics and Applications. This research area spans a range of inter-disciplinary fields, which brings in the scope of innovation and novelty in many of the approaches in the laboratory. Some of the current research activities, they are pursuing are in the field of Organic-Polymeric Electronics - with emphasis on Photovoltaics and Field Effect Transistors, Bio-Molecular Electronics, Soft Lithography, Nanodevices and Technology, Development of Near Field Microscopic Techniques.
The two recent applications of research outcome which are of impact to the community at large is in the area of low-cost polymer solar cells and polymer semiconductors as prosthesis elements for retina with non-functional photoreceptors.
