Anuja Padhye

  Anuja Arun Padhye is from India. She completed her BSc (2013) and MSc (2015) in Physics from the University of Mumbai. During the post-graduation she joined Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai and pursued a research work on random lasers under the supervision of Prof. Sushil Mujumdar. Subsequently, she completed her Master thesis entitled 'Random lasing over Anderson localized states in a quasi-one-dimensional disordered microstructure' from Nano-Optics and Mesoscopic Optics Laboratory, TIFR. 


In the summer of 2015, she worked on two projects as a Charpak research scholar at Laboratoire Aime Cotton, Paris, under the guidance of Prof. Fabien Bretenaker. During this internship, she studied intensity and phase noise correlation of radio frequency beatnote generated in a dual frequency vertical external cavity semiconductor laser (DF-VECSEL) and was also involved in developing a continuous-wave singly resonant optical parametric oscillator to find its applications in quantum telecommunication.


Anuja joined the Optical Parametric Oscillators group at ICFO in January 2016 to pursue her PhD studies under the guidance of Prof. Majid Ebrahim-Zadeh. As a part of the ITN Mid-TECH project she is aiming to design and develop OPOs operating in the mid-IR region in all temporal domains, applications of which can be found in cancer diagnostics and gas analysis.
