About us

Welcome to the Applied and Theoretical Mechanics (ATOM) Laboratory at IIT Indore, founded and directed by Dr. Shailesh. I. Kundalwal of Mechanical Engineering. The ATOM Lab undertakes research primarily in the following areas: Mechanics of Carbon- and Boron-Based Nanostructures, Nanomechanics and Micromechanics of Composites, Nanotechnology in Engineering, and Finite Element Analysis of Composites. The lab's mission is to lead the advancement and application of multifunctional nano- and micro-structures addressing the challenges associated with their multifaceted aspects via numerous nanomechanical and micromechanical techniques. The lab offers an exciting opportunity to join a team of dedicated researchers that pride themselves in cutting edge research that is both challenging and stimulating. Being multi-disciplinary in nature, lab consists of researchers from various backgrounds - physics, materials science, computer, mechanical engineering. See Research tab to know more of our research and Opportunities tab if you are interested to join the lab.
