Pramod Kumar heads the research team at QuantLase Lab. His research interests are in the field of ultrafast non-linear photonics covering various fundamental and applicative aspects, in particular the understanding, control and utilization of ultrashort pulse to probe spatio-temporal complex non-linear dynamical behaviour determining the performance of non-linear photonics devices like Photonic Integrated Circuit on the chip scale, diode laser with ultra-short laser pulse injection, optical parametric oscillators, delay-coupled diode lasers system, and nanostructures of semiconductors. Kumar’s focus is on the study and coherent manipulation of light through photonic structures. Moreover, he has been working on tailoring a non-deterministic white chaotic entropy source based on Optical Perturbative Interferometry for the QKD applications.
His multidisciplinary research interest crosses the borders of scientific disciplines which cover various fundamental and practical applications aspects in the field of Ultrafast Laser physics and Natural Photonics for paving the way towards Photonic Integration technology on chip scale. However for real life applications, the exploitation, understanding, and control of complex optical processes for determining the performance of photonics devices like optical multi-functionality of Photonic structures, Optical parametric oscillators, Quantum nano-structure based mode-locked semiconductor lasers for broadband optical frequency comb need to be understood. In addition, I am very much interested in nature inspired photonic structures fabrication through biomimetic technology for biophotonic applications. My focus is on coherent manipulation and control light through Natural photonic structures. Currently, I am dealing with quantum nano-structure based semiconductor laser for the generation of ultra-short and ultra-fast optical pulses via optical pumping for the applications in telecommunications, Bio-imaging . Moreover, I am dealing with the Prime factorization issue using light for Quantum computing.
