Biswarup Guha is a PML/UMD Postdoctoral Associate in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division. He received a B.Sc. in Physics and a Post B.Sc. B.Tech. in Radiophysics and Electronics at the University of Calcutta, India. Biswarup received a Master’s in Nanosciences at Ecole Polytechnique, France and a Ph.D. in Condensed matter and Interfaces at Paris Diderot University–Paris 7. His doctoral thesis was entitled as ‘Surface-enhanced optomechanical disk resonators and force sensing’. The focus of his doctoral work was the design, fabrication and characterization of III-V semiconductor disk resonators in optomechanical applications and the improvement of such device performance by surface modification. Biswarup is working with Kartik Srinivasan on design, fabrication and characterization of coupled piezo-optomechanical devices for bi-directional microwave-to-optical quantum transduction and quantum dot and photonic/phononic cavity coupled devices.
