Area of Expertise

Optical Switches, Optical Logic Gates & Circuits, Non-linear optics, Photonic Crystal Fibers, Nanophotonics, Nano-structured Materials


Dr. Ghanshyam Singh received Bachelor of Technology degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from National Institute of Technology Silchar (then REC Silchar) in 1997, Master of Technology and PhD degrees in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Malaviya National Institute of Technology Jaipur in 2003 and 2012 respectively. In early 1999, he joined the academic staff of Malaviya National Institute of Technology Jaipur, where he is an Associate Professor with the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering. He has worked as Visiting Scholar/Visiting Professor in the area of Photonic Switching and Networks for various periods at the Department of Physics, Herriot Watt University, Edinburgh, UK (March 2009), the Institute of Photonics, University of Eastern Finland, Joensuu campus, Finland (January - June 2010) under the CIMO Fellowship (Govt. of Finland) and Department of EEE, Keio University, Hiyoshi Campus, Yokohama, Japan (October 2013). Dr. Singh has extensive teaching, research and sponsored R&D experience (for various funding agencies from India and abroad) on many aspects of Optical Communication and Photonics Engineering and has published and reported over 90 research papers/review articles in peer reviewed International journals/conferences. He has edited the book on proceedings of the International conference on recent cognizance in wireless communication & image processing (eBook ISBN: 978-81-322-2638-3) for Springer publication (India) and contributed a chapter for a book on Advanced Technologies (ISBN: 978-953-307-067-4, InTech publication, Austria). He has delivered expert talks on related research topics during various events held in India and abroad (including the Germany, Finland, Japan, Ukraine and Belarus). He was also awarded Travel Support Grant by Department of S&T, Govt. of India to participate International Conference SPIE Photonic West 2012, held in San Francisco, California, USA. Dr. Singh is a senior member of OSA, IEEE and Fellow of OSI and IETE. He is also a life member of other professional societies including SPIE, ISTE, IE (India), etc. Presently, Dr. Singh is engaged with joint research projects with partner researchers from Keio University (Japan), University of Vienna (Austria) and Lviv National Polytechnique University, Lviv (Ukraine). His current research interest includes Micro and Nano-structured photonic devices, all optical circuits and networks and non-linear characteristics of photonic crystal fibers.

Lecture Title(s)

Getting Started with Academic and Research Career in Optics/Photonics
Research has shown that students learn better through interactive engagement. A limitation of present approach adopted by the research scholars/students is that they do not have an adequate opportunity to perform careful extended data taking and analysis. My talk shall be of interactive nature to get back their feedback about such issues and to discuss possible solutions to correct these deficiencies in their ability to analyze and represent research data. Apart from the basic introductory issues and pedagogical approach, following shall be the important points, which I would aim to cover.

  • Aiming to bring researchers together working in the field of optics and photonics and to promote the science and application of light to the wider community
  • To analyze the student expectations, behavior and reasoning and not as much for details about the correctness of the physics concepts related to the particular laboratory/area of research.
  • To develop an ability to find appropriate and relevant literatures, to understand, formulate problems and to plan a methodology for their reliable solutions.
  • To explain the need and importance of professional societies and communities thereby encouraging them to consider applying for membership for societies of their chosen work areas; such as SPIE, IEEE and OSA. 
  • To fit our-self with the available opportunities irrespective of strengthen research areas of understanding.

Advanced Photonic Integrated Circuits and Systems
Key themes: EICs/OICs/PICs, important PIC components, on-chip connecting pattern, fabrication/performance issues.

Microring Resonators Based All Optical Logics/Devices
Key themes: Micro-optical devices/non-linear effects/ couple mode theory. Power level optimization, tandem connection applications.
