Welcome to the Photonics and Quantum Enabled Sensing Technology Laboratory of Prof. Kasturi Saha at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India.
The aim of this research group is to explore and push the boundaries of precision metrology, sensing and imaging using unprecedented opportunities presented by novel interdisciplinary research in fields like nano-photonics, classical and quantum information processing and life sciences. To this end, we wish to develop practical quantum devices via design and experimentation, thus connecting quantum theory to engineering applications.
If you are interested in building one of the most advanced quantum-enabled sensing technologies labs, please send me an email (kasturis[at]ee[dot]iitb[dot]ac[dot]in). We are looking for hardworking graduate students, postdocs, and undergraduates!
For prospective PhD students: Please email me your resume and apply to the EE and CRNTS departments of IIT-Bombay through the usual bi-annual admission process using the following link https://www.ee.iitb.ac.in/web/academics/admissions. The application deadlines are usually in September and March. Candidates with CSIR, UGC and DST-Inspire fellowships are greatly encouraged to apply. However, we also have funding support for Ph. D. students.
I’M LOOKING TO HIRE BRIGHT AND MOTIVATED PHD STUDENT AND PROJECT STAFF:
Development of quantum sensors for biomolecular sensing: In this project, we aim to develop quantum sensors for ultra-low biomolecular sensing and benchtop quantum sensing devices for probing cellular environments in situ. Further, we wish to augment a confocal microscope with quantum sensing capabilities such as relaxometry and coherent measurements for implementing nano-MRI.
THE PROJECT WILL INVOLVE
•GROWTH AND HANDLING OF BIOLOGICAL SAMPLES AND USING CONFOCAL MICROSCOPES FOR IMAGING SUCH SAMPLES
•BUILDING OPTICAL SETUPS FOR IMAGING AND MICROSCOPY
•CODING AND INTEGRATING A VARIETY OF EQUIPMENT
STUDENTS WITH A PHYSICS BACKGROUND AND BIO-ENGINEERING/BIOTECHNOLOGY BACKGROUND ARE ENCOURAGED TO APPLY.
