Room: EMB G.11




Syam Mohan received his MSc degree in Electronics in 2008 and M.Tech degree in Optoelectronics and Optical communication in 2011 from Mahatma Gandhi University and University of Kerala, India respectively. He successfully completed his M.Tech project at Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute (CGCRI), Kolkata, India in fibre optic chemical sensor. He joined in Vinvish Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (2011 Oct -2014 May) India (Development Centre for Nuphoton Technologies USA) as an Optics engineer, Where he was working in design and development of photodynamic therapy laser, Development of Supercontinuum laser and design and development of a broad band confocal microscope in collaboration with Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute (CSIR-CGCRI), Kolkata, DBT Govt. of India, RCC Trivandrum, ICMR India. Later he joined in the National Centre for Laser Applications (NCLA-NUIG), Galway, Ireland as a researcher in laser technology (2014 June-2015 may), there he developed his interest in bio-photonics (“Anti biofilm technology for indwelling catheters using UV light” in collaboration with Teleflex medical USA, “Ultrafast laser processing of Fractional Flow Reserve catheter tip” in collaboration with Medtronic USA), laser Spectroscopy, profilometry and microscopy etc.

He is currently a doctoral candidate at Applied Optics and Photonics research group in the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Heriot Watt University. The main objective of his research is to develop a novel ultrafast laser tool for the surgical procedure of early stage cancers in the colon and lung of humans. To develop a robust and flexible fibre delivery of ultrafast laser is also under the scope of his project.
