Anoop K. K

Assistant Professor

I am a faculty member (Assistant Professor) in the Department of Physics at Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT), Cochin, India. Before joining CUSAT I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Raman Research Institute (RRI), Bangalore, India. I obtained my PhD in Physics from the University of Naples Federico II, Italy, in April 2015. My research interests are Ultrashort Laser Ablation, Laser Produced Plasma Diagnostics, Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy, Pulsed Laser Deposition, Optical-vortex Laser Ablation, and Femtosecond Laser Surface Micro/Nanostructuring and its Applications.
