Research Training

Institut Fresnel, Marseille, France:

During masters’ 1st semester, worked in a projects on hyperbolic metamaterials under the supervision of Dr. Stefan Enoch, Former Director, Institut Fresnel, Aix-Marseille University. This 6 ECTS worth project was intended to provide primary training for photonics research. Before the beginning of the 2nd semester in Karlsruhe, there was a free month. I spent that time working on metamaterial waveguides with the same supervisor.

October 2014 - March 2015:


Karlsruhe School of Optics and Photonics, Karlsruhe, Germany:

Masters’ 2nd semester, worked in the cleanroom facility. There was a complete module consisting of 4 different experiments to train the students on Nanofabrication process. During these experiments: 

- Fabricated an organic LED

- Fabricated an organic transistor

- Trained in direct laser writing and optical lithography

- Trained in Scanning Electron Microscopy

April 2015 - July 2015:

Summer Internship

University of St Andrews Fife, United Kingdom:

Joined the nanophotonics group at University of St Andrews. This group holds the world record for low loss slow light photonic crystal waveguide. During this internship designed a group index taper for efficient coupling of light into slow light photonic crystal waveguide. A paper on this topic was also published in SPIE Photonics Europe meeting in 2016 (DOI).
