Pradeep Srinivasan obtained a PhD in Optics from CREOL/College of Optics and Photonics at the University of Central Florida. As a part of his doctoral dissertation he designed and developed all dielectric meta-optical structures with space-variant spectral, polarization and amplitude response. Strategically introduced variations in the structural properties of resonant diffractive structures were used to tailor the optical response in the near- and far-field. The complex structures were micro fabricated using wafer level approaches enabled by a novel lithographic technique developed as part of this work. Spectrally tunable optical elements were demonstrated for applications including sensing, beam shaping, graded reflectivity laser mirrors and beam quality enhancement of broad area diode lasers. Prior to this he obtained a Masters in Electrical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati. He has coauthored 2 invited presentations and more than 20 publications in peer reviewed journals and conference proceedings and has an issued patent.
