Dr. Deep Jariwala


Photovoltaics, Plasmonics


Deep Jariwala joined the Atwater group as a Resnick Postdoctoral Fellow in 2015. Prior to joining the Atwater group, Deep obtained his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University where the focus of his research was investigation of opto-electronic properties and electronic circuit applications of heterostructure devices from two-dimensional (2D) materials. At Caltech, his major interests lie in developing nanophotonic architectures to enhance light absorption in 2D semiconductors and ultimate explore the efficiency limits in ultrathin photovoltaic cells comprising 2D materials.
