Kashma Rai, PhD

Kashma's primary research interest was fabrication and creation of multiple configurations of holographic thin films for broadband wavelength applications. Material optimization of thin film hologram recipe for specific applications and modeling the interaction of light with them were essential part of my work at Drexel. Also an integral part of my research experience was the fundamental understanding of liquid crystal/polymer interaction using scanning electron microscopy (in high vacuum, variable pressure and environmental modes) and electron spin resonance spectroscopy (in collaboration with Zannoni Research Group).
