Dr. Pankaj Jha

Postdoc



Pankaj Jha joined Atwater Group in October 2017. His research interests lie at the interface of quantum physics, applied optics, and materials science to understand and harness light-matter interactions at the atomic-scale. Of paramount importance is to make use of quantum nature of light and develop devices that will deliver quantum-enhanced performances for energy, health, and defense applications.
