Bakhrom Oripov (IntlAssoc)

Postdoctoral Associate

Dr. Bakhrom Oripov is a PREP Researcher in Faint Photonics Group. He began his academic journey by earning a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from Bogazici University in Bebek, Istanbul, Turkey, in 2012. Later he pursued higher education and obtained his Ph.D. in condensed matter physics from the University of Maryland, College Park, MD, USA, in 2020.

During his graduate studies, Dr. Bakhrom focused on the physics and surface properties of Superconducting Radio-Frequency (SRF) Cavities. Specifically, he designed a Scanning Probe Microscopy based diagnostic tool to find and characterize surface defects. Additionally, he performed numerical simulations to investigate the dynamics of vortex nucleation in SRF cavities.

Currently, Dr. Bakhrom is involved in the design, fabrication, and characterization of Superconducting Single-Photon Detector Arrays.
