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 and sensing 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 lab, please send me an email (kasturis[at]ee[dot]iitb[dot]ac[dot]in). We are looking for graduate students, postdocs, and undergraduates!

For prospective Ph.D. 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. 

We thank our funding agencies – DST – SERB, DST Inspire, Air Force Research Laboratory (ARFL) – USA and IIT Bombay.
