Lakshmi Rajagopal
Early Stage Researcher 

 

Lakshmi is a Marie Curie fellowship based Early-Stage Researcher, pursuing her PhD with BT and University of Birmingham on the “Application of highly precise optical clocks in a telecom network”. Her interests include time and frequency distribution across networks, network synchronisation, and different clock technologies. Telecom networks need high level of accuracy and synchronization to work effectively. Currently, this is achieved with the help of satellite-based technologies. The next generation of telecom network require precision and stability than ever before, and this is easily achieved in the lab with an optical atomic clock. The challenge is on how to bring this technology out of the lab and utilize it in a telecom infrastructure. Another dimension of her research work involves investigating wide range of use cases and applications that can be benefitted from these highly precise clocks.
