Kotal, Saptarshi

QuEnG and GreQuE
After obtaining his Bachelor of Science from Sri Aurobindo International Centre of Education (Pondicherry, IN), Saptarshi completed his Master of Science with honours from Université de Bourgogne (Dijon, FR), where he specialised in Photonics and Nanotechnology.
Interests broadly include, quantum information processing, quantum state manipulation and control, quantum networks, and quantum-classical interface.

In his PhD project he will target the development of highly efficient practical sources that generate single photons and entangled photon pairs at telecom wavelengths and exhibit broad spectral-tunability. The sources will consist of photonic nanowire structures embedded with semiconductor quantum dots whose optical properties will be controlled using external mechanical strain.
