Dr. Srikanth Sugavanam

Scientist, Photonics and Applications

Welcome!

My name is Srikanth, and I am a Photonics research scientist and Marie S.-Curie Fellowship Programme Manager at Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies, Aston University.

I work in the area of fibre lasers, specializing in real-time laser characterization techniques. I am keenly interested in applying such techniques in real-world applications, where multi-gigahertz bandwidth, megahertz-rate acquisition diagnostics can lead to interesting insights.

SCIENTIFIC EXPERTISE

Fibre lasers, ultrafast measurement techniques, fibre optic sensors and instrumentation

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT

Spatio-temporal dynamics of Fibre Lasers

Ride alongside coherent and dissipative features in fibre lasers to see how they evolve in real time, in experiment.

Selected papers

Read about spatio-temporal dynamics, random fibre lasers, laminar-turbulent transitions in Raman fibre lasers, and more.

Ongoing projects

Some interesting projects that I am working on currently

Ultrafast fibre laser gyroscopes
