Research Area: Quantum Mechanics and Bose Einstein condensation.

My research is focused to understand the nontrivial aspects of quantum physics and to develop new experimental methods to explore the counter intuitive aspects of quantum physics. Quantum superposition principle, which is regarded as the foundation of quantum physics, signifies that the matter can be located at different locations at a given instant of time. In general, a quantum system can exist in mutually exclusive configurations at a time. For example, a living organism can be alive and dead simultaneously if it is isolated and unobserved. Such type of counter intuitive possibilities are named as the Schrodinger cat states or the macroscopically entangled quantum states. In this regard, I have introduced a new quantum system named as Flux-Qubit-Cantilever. This experimentally implementable quantum system can be utilized to realise macroscopically entangled quantum states.

I am an experimental physicist however, I am also doing research on the theoretical aspect of quantum mechanics. I have established two research labs at IISER Mohali to do experimental research on quantum physics with laser cooled atoms, Bose Einstein condensation, atom chips and photon entanglement.
