Dr. Kalaga Madhav

Research interests :

  1. Inverse design of photonics
  2. Nanophotonics
  3. Photonics for ground- and space- based astronomy

I head the Astrophotonics research group in innoFSPEC at AIP. My research group consists of 7 postdocs, 5 PhD students, 3 masters students, and student assistants. The team is currently developing :

  1. AFBG OH-emission filters for ground-based telescopes
  2. Arrayed Waveguide Gratings (AWG) based high R spectrographs for ground- and space -based astronomy
  3. Micro-ring resonator based ultra-stable frequency combs for astronomy
  4. Photonic lanterns (PL)
  5. Adaptic Optics (AO)
  6. Beam combiners (DBC) and pupil re-mappers
  7. Technology transfer from astronomy : detecting skin cancer and micro-plastics through Raman spectroscopy using astronomical spectrographs.
