Karabi Biswas’s research interests are “Sensor development”, “Instrument system design” and “Study of fractional order systems”.
She is one of the earliest scientists who could realize a fractional order element with tunable parameters. The device is a low cost one and can be easily manufactured which makes it a potential candidate to become the fourth element in electrical circuits apart from the existing resistor, capacitor and inductor. The other notable feature of the device is that it can be used as a sensor to sense the ionic property of liquid medium. She has successfully used in-house developed fractional order element to develop fractional order differentiator, integrator, filters which contributes to the development of a parallel branch in mathematics and engineering comprising of fractional order differential equations.
She is instrumental in developing multidisciplinary research in electrical engineering.
Her research on fractional order element now extends to the analysis of origination of its fractional order behavior, its customization and its packaging which require in-depth knowledge in physics, chemistry, material science and engineering. The main vision of the research is to develop a commercially viable element which will be considered as the fourth element in electrical engineering apart from the existing resistor, capacitor and inductor.
She also plans to develop low cost instrumentation system using the device as a sensor for health care and environmental monitoring. In the process she is connecting with various stakeholders like industry, other (national/international) universities, funding agencies; graduate students to develop a new area in science and engineering comprising fractional order system.
