Pramod Vishwakarma completed his B.E. in Electronics and Communication in 2012 and M.Tech. in Nanotechnology in 2014 from Rajiv Gandhi Technical University, India. His masters dissertation was based on, “Tailoring of in-plane magnetic anisotropy in polycrystalline cobalt thin films by external stress” where he also worked on programing for automization of in-situ MOKE and XRR measurement systems in LabVIEW at UGC-DAE Consortium for Scientific Research, Indore, India. After his masters, for further development in research career he worked as junior research fellow on Department of Science and Technology, India sponsored research project at Centre for Spintronic Materials, Amity University, Noida, India. He received his Ph.D in 2021 on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at Amity University, Noida, India under the supervision of Prof. Ajay Gupta. His Ph.D research was focused on, “Study of ultra-thin magnetic films for spintronic applications”. He extensively used synchrotron based techniques at PETRA III, Hamburg, Germany and at Indus 2, Indore, India. He developed a setup for the MOKE measurements system during his Ph.D. Since 2022, he is working as a postdoctoral research fellow in group ON-6.3 at the International Centre for Interfacing Magnetism and Superconductivity with Topological Matter–MagTop, headed by Prof. Tomasz Dietl at the Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw.
His major research interests include, study of spin dynamics in magnetic layer (Fe, Py etc.) on top of topological insulators using Ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) and Brillouin light scattering (BLS) techniques. Spintronic materials, including multilayer nanostructures exhibiting Giant Magnetoresistance, Tunnel Magnetoresistance, Exchange Bias; soft and hard magnetic thin films, Depth resolved Structural, Chemical, Electronic and Magnetic studies in thin films and multilayers, synchrotron based X-ray standing waves, soft X-ray absorption spectroscopy (SXAS), X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD), X-ray Resonant Magnetic Scattering (XRMR) and Polarized-neutron specular reflectometry (PNR) etc.
During his bachelors, he qualified national level examination, Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering (GATE) in 2011 and received a fellowship from Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) India, to pursue M. Tech. He has visited and presented his research work at Kyushu Institute of Technology and Yamaguchi University in Japan through Sakura Science Exchange Program in 2020. He has attended/presented his work at more than 10 conferences/workshops and served as a member of the organizing committee of “DAE Solid State Physics Symposium 2015” held in Amity University, Noida, India in 2015. Till date, he has published six research publications as an author or co-author in reputed international journals with around 47 citations, h-index of 04 and i-10 index of 01 on Google Scholar.
