My multidisciplinary research interest crosses the borders of scientific disciplines which cover various fundamental and practical applications aspects in the field of Ultrafast Laser physics and Natural Photonics for paving the way towards Photonic Integration technology on chip scale. However for real life applications, the exploitation, understanding, and control of  complex optical processes for determining the performance of photonics devices like optical multi-functionality of Photonic structures, Optical parametric oscillators, Quantum nano-structure based mode-locked semiconductor lasers for broadband optical frequency comb need to be understood. Moreover, I am very much interested in nature inspired photonic structures fabrication through biomimetic technology for biophotonic applications.

My focus is on coherent manipulation and control light through Natural photonic structures for medical imaging technology. In addition, I am dealing with quantum nano-structure based semiconductor laser for the generation of ultra-short and ultra-fast optical pulses via optical pumping for the applications in telecommunications, Bio-imaging . Currently, I am dealing with the Prime factorization issue using light for Quantum computing. Particulaly, Optical demonstration of Shor's Quantum Algorithm for the  prime factorization of large digit number N for secure Quantum communication.
