Giving to CREOL CREOL, The College of Optics & Photonics

Seminar: "Nanophotonics for Real Life Applications" by Debashis Chanda

Friday, January 26, 2018 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
CREOL Room 103

Dr. Debashis Chanda
Associate Professor
NanoScience Technology Center,
College of Optics and Photonics (CREOL),
University of Central Florida


This general overview talk will focus on enhanced light-latter interactions on nanostructured surfaces for real life applications. Light-matter interactions can be controlled by manipulating the electric and magnetic responses of a material. Specifically, uncooled detection of mid-IR photons, skin-like displays, neural sensing and infrared concealing/camouflage will be highlighted. The newly developed printing techniques enable large area printing of such nanostructured surfaces for low cost manufacturing.


Prof. Debashis Chanda is an Associate Professor, jointly appointed with NanoScience Technology Center and College of Optics and Photonics (CREOL), University of Central Florida (UCF). Dr. Chanda received his PhD from University of Toronto. His PhD work was recognized in the form of several awards, including prestigious National Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) fellowship. Dr. Chanda completed his post-doctoral research with Prof. John A. Rogers at Beckman Institute, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Quite a few of this research works were extensively covered by National Science Foundation news, BBC, Daily Mail, NBC, Fox, Science Radio and other national/international media outlets. His research has appeared on American Scientist magazine as focused article where it was outlined how companies like Intel, Toshiba etc are trying to adopt some of the printing techniques which were developed in his group. Dr. Chanda is a recipient of the 2012 DOE Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) Solar Energy Future Direction Innovation Proposal Award, 2013 NSF Summer Institute Fellowship and International Displaying Future Award-2016 by Merck Germany. Dr. Chanda’s research has been supported by NSF, DARPA, Florida Space Institute/NASA, State of Florida, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin etc. Apart from that Dr. Chanda is founder of couple of start-ups out of his research in California.
