MSc, PhD


Sachin Surve received the PhD degree in applied physics (specialized in photonics) from Victoria University, Melbourne, in 2004.  At ANU Sachin is involved with setting-up laser laboratories and laser-based processes for solar applications.  His current research interests include implementing novel laser-based applications in semiconductor, photovoltaic and other relevant technologies.


Research interests

  • Photonics: laser-based processing systems, fibre-optic sensors, fibre optic interferometers, In-fibre Bragg gratings and components, DPSS and Gas lasers, interferometric/holographic optical assemblies/alignments.
  • Semiconductor: lithography processes, mask-less lithography, fabricating binary and greyscale photomasks, evaporation/dry-etching mask design and fabrication.
  • Photovoltaic: Laser-based processes for fabricating solar cells, developing customised solar cell modules for research purposes, characterising modules using solar cell simulators, characterising solar cells using photoluminescence, electroluminescence, internal/external quantum efficiency techniques and accelerated testing of modules.
