  • Bijoy Krishna Das obtained his master degree in solid state physics from Vidyasagar University, Midnapore, India (in 1996) and PhD degree (Dr.rer.nat) in integrated optics from University of Paderborn, Germany (in April 2003). Prior to his PhD research in Germany, Dr. Das started his research career in the area of integrated optics at the Microelectronics Centre, IIT Kharagpur for three years (January 1996 – December 1998). His postdoctoral research carried out in three different countries. First, he was an FRC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Graduate School of Engineering, Osaka University, Osaka, Japan (2004-2005). Later, he joined as a postdoctoral researcher in the Center for Optical Technologies, Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, USA. In April 2005, he rejoined the Integrated Optics Group in University of Paderborn as Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter and continued his research on integrated nonlinear optical devices. He also worked for a while at Laboratoire Aime Cotton, CNRS, Orsay, France. Since August 2006, Dr. Das has been associated with the Dept. of Electrical Engineering, IIT Madras, where he is presently holding a full Professor position. He is one of the founding members of Centre for NEMS and Nanophotonics (CNNP) at IIT Madras and Chief Investigator of Silicon Photonics Centre of Excellence - Centre for Programmable Photonic Integrated Circuits and Systems (CoE-CPPICS), funded by the MeitY, Govt. of India.
