Assistant Professor (Senior Grade)


Dr. R.K. Gopal is an assistant professor in the Department of Physics. He has done his M.Sc. from department of physics, Institute of Science, Banaras Hindu University, and PhD from Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Kolkata (IISER-Kolkata). After his PhD, he was a postdoctoral fellow in Department of Physical Sciences, Indian Institute of Science Bangalore (IISc. Bangalore), IISER-Mohali, JNCASR-Bangalore and senior research associate at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. He has been teaching physics from last eight months and joined JIIT in July-2023.

At present Dr. Gopal is working on topological quantum materials, which includes three dimensional topological semimetals and topological insulators thin film and devices in two-dimensions. His particular interest is in the low-temperature quantum transport measurements to investigate the role of disorder on the electronic transport of these topological quantum materials. Recently, he has started probing ultrafast Dirac fermion dynamics in these topological quantum materials, by utilizing terahertz time-domain spectroscopy in collaboration with Professor Kamraju at IISER-Kolkata.
