The Bio-Optics and Nano-Photonics Group of IISER-K

The main research area of the group is (i) Nano-optics (ii) Polarization Optics and optical polarimetry and (iii) Biophotonics

(i) Nano-Optics:

In Nano-Optics, we do

  • Basic studies on light-matter interactions at the nano scale.
  • Basic studies on localized surface plasmon resonance in metal nano-structures.
  • Studies on coupled plasmons, plasmonic Fano resonances.
  • Spin Orbit interaction of light in micro and nano optical systems.
  • Weak measurements to amplify spin optical effects and other tiny optical effects.

(ii) Polarization Optics and optical polarimetry:

In Polarization Optics and optical polarimetry, we do

  • Basic studies on polarization (spin)optical effects.
  • Basic theoretical and experimental studies on polarization (Mueller matrices, Stokes vectors, Jones matrices) and coherence characteristics of scattered light in random medium.
  • We also study

    (iii) Biophotonics:

    where,

  • Develop novel optical spectroscopic approaches to probe sub-diffractional information on the morphology of complex systems such as biological tissues.
  • Mueller matrix polarimetry and its applications in biophotonics.
  • Investigate various optical spectroscopic approaches (Elastic scattering, Fluorescence, Raman) for probing biological systems and other complex systems.
