Undergraduate Research


Undergraduate research is an excellent opportunity to get a glimpse into the life of a scientist while also contributing to cutting-edge research. It is also a way to develop several relevant skills building on the student’s classroom learning. In our group, the students will be participating in the development of optical measurement tools, which involves design and implementation of optical systems, instrument interfacing and data analysis. The work may entail hands-on experimental or computational objectives, which can be chosen based on the student’s interests and aptitude. A few representative projects are as follows:

  1. Implementation of non-collinear optical parametric amplifier to produce broadband femtosecond optical pulses in the Visible-NIR spectral regions.
  2. Exploration of machine-learning algorithms for optical pulse compression.
  3. Single photon correlation spectroscopy
  4. Measurement of quantum entanglement between photons via Hong-Ou-Mandel interferometry.
  5. Ultrafast transient dynamics in semiconductors via pump-probe spectroscopy.

Strong background in Physics or Computer Science is preferred.
