My research work focuses on the design, epitaxy, fabrication, characterization, packaging and degradation of high performance, wide band gap based, solar-blind, ultra-violet, vertical photodetectors. Coming from a Physics background, my interests include establishing a correlation between microscopic crystalline quality of III-nitride semiconductor layers and performance and reliability of macroscopic photodetectors based on these epi-layers. I had earlier done B.Sc. (H) Physics, at Miranda House, University of Delhi & M.Sc. Physics at Department of Physics and Astrophysics, University of Delhi.
