To Whom It May Concern

I have an impecable research record in the field of optical spectroscopy and am looking for a professional work environment where I can utilize my skills.

I have been employed since May 6, 2010 in the Chemistry Department as a Research Associate under the direct supervision of Dr. Minfang Yeh. I am involved in different aspects of reactor neutrino experiments.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely

Pankaj Sinha

OPTICAL SPECTROSCOPIST/PHYSICIST/CHEMIST

Researcher ~ Technician ~ Scientist

Meticulous, trilingual (English, French, Hindi) professional scientist with extensive experience at Universities and DOE National Laboratories with a portfolio of techniques that pertain to the science of luminescent Thin-films (OLEDs, PHOLEDs, PLEDs), Solids (various applications) and solutions (various applications), Silicon photonics and Luminescent detection of sub-atomic particles. Technically proficient in most areas of spectroscopy and these include Laser and Spectrometric Ellipsometry, Photoluminescent Spectroscopy (Steady-state, Time-resolved, Temperature-studies in the film, solid and solution state), Electronic Absorption and Diffuse Reflectance (Films, Solids and Solutions) in the UV/visible/NIR region, Raman Spectroscopy, Microphotoluminescence, Transient Absorption Spectroscopy, Ultra-fast Laser Spectroscopy, NSOM and Microscopy. In addition to instrumentation, candidate is very proficient in handling air-sensitive inorganic and organic materials and their synthesis via Shlenk and Glovebox techniques. Work in Computational chemistry allowed for Molecular analysis of spectroscopic data and left extensive experience in computers and programming from Labview to C++. Proficient in computer programs such as Gaussian, Molpro, NWChem, LabView, Matlab, Origin, Root and the Microsoft Office Suite of programs. Willing to relocate. Citizenship- Canadian and work in the US under an H1 visa status or can work under TN (NAFTA)..
