Mr. Sai Prasanna Kumar P, a University of Hyderabad (UoH) student of Integrated Masters in Chemical Sciences has been offered a fully-funded graduate position under ‘QUSTEC – Quantum Science and Technologies at the European Campus’ a doctoral training programme set-up by the European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC) Eucor – The European Campus at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Karlsruhe, Germany.
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology is ranked 116 among all universities in the world and 47 in materials sciences. During his Ph.D., Sai Prasanna Kumar will be working under the supervision of Prof. Mario Ruben. His area of research will be Quantum Nanodevices and the Topic of his thesis will be Synthesis of molecular spin qudits with increased Hilbert spaces.
At UoH, Mr. Sai Prasanna Kumar P did his Master’s thesis titled as “Novel synthesis of photochromic (6s,13s)-6,13-bis((4-fluorophenyl)thio)-6,13-dihydropentacene based micro-spherical whispering gallery mode resonators” in the field of Nanophotonics and organic materials for whispering gallery mode resonators under the guidance of Prof. R. Chandrasekar, School of Chemistry, University of Hyderabad. He was also a summer research intern in Prof. K. Muralidharan group at the School of Chemistry, University of Hyderabad May-July 2017 titled as “Synthesis of CdS(cadmium sulphide) nano particles methods using Hexamethyldisilazane(HMDS) and surfactant-sodium dodecylsulphate(SDS)”. At UGC-DAE-CSR Indore he has been working as a Project Fellow position on the project entitled “Scanning Tunneling Microscopy/Spectroscopy investigations of Spin Cross-Over Fe(II) Coordination Polymers” since May 2019.
