Welcome to Rajendhar Junjuri! A new member from IPHT team

Rajendhar Junjuri hails from Telangana, India. He received a master’s degree in physics from
Osmania University, Inda, in 2011. He obtained Ph.D. in Physics from the University of
Hyderabad, India, in 2020. His doctoral work focused on developing a low-cost Laser Induced
Breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) system combined with chemometrics for various applications
like plastic waste sorting, biological tissue mapping, standoff detection of explosives, etc. His
thesis results were published in various reputed international journals and appeared in the OSA
optics year review 2020.

In 2021, He moved to the Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology LUT, Finland, for postdoctoral work. At LUT, He worked on CARS spectroscopy phase retrieval methods using deep learning (DL) algorithms. Recently He joined in Photonic data science group at Leibniz institute of photonic technology, Jena, Germany. Currently, he is exploring different DL algorithms for efficiently removing non-resonant background in CARS spectra. He will also investigate the data pre-treatment and data standardization methods required for the CARS spectral data analysis.
