We are delighted to welcome, Prof. Kasturi Saha to the IITB Community. Prof. Kasturi joined the Department of Electrical Engineering this year.
Prof. Kasturi Saha did her Ph.D. in the Quantum and Nonlinear Photonics Group of Prof. Alexander Gaeta in the School of Applied and Engineering Physics at Cornell University. Her thesis work involved the characterization, time-domain analysis and stabilization of frequency combs generated in silicon nitride microring resonators and ultra-low power nonlinear optics in photonic bandgap fibers. She worked in close collaboration with Prof. Michal Lipson’s group in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
She did her post-doctoral fellowship in the Quantum Engineering Group of Prof. Paola Cappellaro in the Research Laboratory of Electronics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) where she worked primarily on building a quantum spin-based gyroscope using Nitrogen-Vacancy (NV) centers in diamond.
In the past, she did her B.Sc. from St. Stephen’s College, Delhi from 2003-06 and then obtained M.Sc. in Physics from IIT-Delhi in 2008.
Her research interest includes understanding the principles of Nanophotonics, Quantum optics, Magnetometry and Color centers in diamond. She is currently the heading a research group called “P-Quest” at IIT Bombay
