Dr. Mukul Chandra Paul received the M.Sc degree in Inorganic Chemistry from Burdwan University in 1989 and the Ph.D degree in the field of development of radiation sensitive fibers for evaluation of their radiation response behavior at room temperature from Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute in 2003. Since 1997, he has been Research Scientist with the Fiber Optic Laboratory of CGCRI. His interests have been focused mainly in the field of development of various type of optical preforms for making of specialty optical fibre based device and component. Development of gain-flattened Er doped fiber(EDF) for use in C-band optical amplifier, development of suitable photosensitive optical fibers GeO2 doped , GeO2-B2O3 doped, Cladding mode suppressed(CMS) fibers for writing Bragg-grating to be used as strain sensor, temperature sensor, gain-flattening filter etc. Another area of his research work was focused on doping of rare-earths specifically Er and Yb into different nano-crystalline hosts such as ZrO2, Y2O3 PbF2 of silica based core glass of optical preform through solution doping technique followed by MCVD process for making of fiber optic based devices such high power fiber laser, upconversion fiber laser & high power optical amplifier. In the last five years, he was actively associated with a CSIR Networked Project on “Development of key technologies for photonics and opto-electronics” where a complete packaged Erbium Doped Fibre Amplifier (EDFA) module using our EDF has been developed with an industrial partnership of OJ Optics, Cochin. His scientific role in the field of development of different specialty optical fibers involved selection of suitable core glass composition of the fiber to improve their desired property for which purpose can be used for making of optical fiber based components and devices. Identification of the critical parameters associated with making of different type of preforms from which specialty fibers can be drawn. Overcome of the critical parameters with proper choice of core deposition temperature, core & cladding glass compositions, suitable strength of precursors of co-dopants and collapsing condition. Standardization of the whole deposition programme after evaluation of the optical and geometrical parameters to get the exact desired parameters of the fibers. He has published more than 70 journal and International papers and 3 patents
