SRINIVASU KUNUKU, PhD
Srinivasu Kunuku (born 1986) received his Ph.D. degree in materials physics from the college of nuclear science, National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan, in 2017. During his Ph.D., Srinivas worked on the characteristics of diamond color centers in CVD diamond films, diamond nanostructures, and single-crystalline diamond films. Besides, He have been interested in fabrication of diamond and hybrid-diamond based field-electron emission and microplasma devices. He received the National Tsing Hua University’s international student scholarship from 2011-2015. In 2017, He joined as a postdoctoral research fellow in accelerator lab, National Tsing Hua University. During this time his research was focused on magnetic ion (manganese) implantation into nanodiamonds for the synthesis of magnetic, fluorescent nanodiamonds for MRI contrast agent and bio-imaging applications. He also carried out ion-implantation of various elements into diamond films and nanodiamonds to investigate their electrical and optical properties. In 2020, He joined as a postdoctoral researcher at Gdansk University of Technology, to work on development of diamond color center based sensors. His research interests include the synthesis of CVD diamond films, diamond nanostructure fabrication, creation of diamond color centers, diamond based single-photon sources, ion-implantation in to diamond, magnetic nanodiamonds, field electron emission devices, hybrid diamond films and SiC thin films for high power electronic devices and microplasma devices.
