Dr. Shimul Nath’s fellowship project aims to develop high quality, free‐standing MCT thin films for making next generation curved infrared sensors with wider field of view. This new type of curved infrared sensors will have various strategically important applications, especially airborne remote sensing, including (but not limited to) bushfire warning and monitoring, precision farming and monitoring (drought and diseases), mineral exploration, as well as medical applications.
Dr. Nath received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electronic Materials Engineering, Research School of Physics, The Australian National University. He is currently a Post-doctoral Research Associate at The University of Western Australia. He has extensive research experiences and expertise in oxide-based memristors and photodetectors, and currently exploring their potential for emerging technologies, including brain-inspired computing and next-generation remote sensing. To date he has authored and co-authored more than 14 research articles in prestigious scientific journals and presented his research in leading national and international conferences.
