Dr. Arindam Ghosh
Assistant Professor, Department of Physics
Indian Institute of Science (IISc)
 
Profile: Dr. Arindam Ghosh is an experimental physicist with research interest in several fields in classical and quantum solid state physics. He completed his PhD research from the Indian Institute of Science in 2000. During his PhD he worked on the effect of Coulomb interaction on the electrical properties of semiconductor and metals close to metal-insulator transition. Following PhD, he held the position of Research Associate at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom, till Nov 2005. During this period his research activities expanded to semiconductor nanostructures, effects of Coulomb interaction in mesoscopic systems, and spontaneous spin effects in semiconductors. At the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, where he is currently employed as an Assistant Professor, Dr. Ghosh researches on nanoelectronics with carbon and metallic nanosystems, quantum information processing with semiconductor nanostructures, and sensing with micro and nano-electromechanical devices. He has published over 50 international papers, and registered as a recognized researcher at the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), UK, in 2005. He has also received the UK-India Education and Research Initiative award in 2006, the IBM Nanotechnology Fellowship in 2008, and the Swarnajayanti Fellowship from the Government of India in 2009.
