Experience

Hello, I'm Tamizi, an Industrial Chemist with MSc in Microelectronics. As such, my research lies somewhere around the thin borderline of the two disciplines. My main research interest is the exploration of novel process windows - such as polymerization via photochemistry, inorganic networking via sol-gel science (and a synergistic combination of both) to build sustainable industrial chemistry, with minimal carbon footprints and environmental contamination. I have pursued this so far by working in advanced materials - specifically, sol-gel science for thin-film optics. Please, feel free to contact me for further info.

 

2000 - 2005

National Photonic Project – Development of An All Optical Network System based on WDM-FTTH Technology

Carried out experimental work on fabrication of silica based thin film materials using plasma based sputtering and sol-gel spin and dip coating techniques. Engage in preparation of UV sensitive silica materials involving synchronizing photo-initiator with unsaturated(vinyl- and allyl-)silsesquioxane for radical polymerization by Norrish type II reaction. Accomplished method for suitable suspension of Erbium ions within silica matrix for photo-amplification applications. Execute the materials characterizations for the fabricated silica component – spectroscopic, morphology and topographic techniques. Performed optical characterizations – optical propagation loss for fabricated waveguides.

2005 - 2008

Project : Development of Titania based Hybrid Materials for Used in Optical Integrated Circuits

Strategized the plan for preparation of photo-sensitive titania materials as alternative for photolithography. Executed synthesis of β-diketo complexes for titania alkoxides in order to enable photo-polymerization process by UV curing technique. Associate in setting up photo-curing set-up for UV-micropatterning technique(photo-dissociation of chelated titanium ions within silsesquioxane thin film). Execute the materials characterizations for the fabricated silica component – spectroscopic, morphology and topographic techniques. Performed optical characterizations – optical propagation loss for fabricated Mach-Zehnder and Bragg grating component.

2008 - 2011

Project : Developing an Imaging Spectrometer Technique for Reversible Photo-dimerization of Optically Active Photochromic Dyes

Designed plan for preparation of photochromatically active compounds based on spiropyran dyes and derivatives. Carried out preparation of spiropyran-doped silica sol-gel solution preparation and deposition by spin coating technique. Associate in setting up photo-curing set-up for UV-micropatterning technique(photo-dissociation of chelated titanium ions within silsesquioxane thin film). Performed optical characterizations – photodimerization of spiropyran dye in solgel solution and thin film.

2011 - 2014

Project : Photochromism Behavior Prediction using Statistical Method
