Former Graduate Students

Dipanjana Saha (M. Tech, Optics and Optoelectronics, First Class; Post B.Sc. B.Tech in Optics and Optoelectronics, First Class; B.Sc. in Electronics Science, First Class, University of Calcutta)

PhD student (08/2018-07/2019)

Department of Biomedical Engineering, CUHK

About me: I did my Bachelor’s in electronics science (honours). Meanwhile, I developed an interest in optics, which motivated me do a post B.Sc. B.Tech. in optics and optoelectronics from the Department of Applied Optics and Photonics, University of Calcutta, India. My master’s degree was in “Masters in Technology in Optics and Optoelectronics” from the same department. After that I have worked as Junior Research Fellow in Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Hyderabad, India. There I have worked on a project which involves design and development of intense, narrow bandwidth and broadly tunable mid-IR radiation sources. These will be useful for high resolution spectroscopy and state selective preparation of molecules in molecular beams. I have also worked on A project to develop a Laser Wavemeter with solid Fizeau Interferometer of resolution I in range”. Apart from studies I like to play flute, Indian classical music, painting and reading poems and novels.
