After obtaining his bachelor’s degree in electronics engineering, Hemendra Kala moved to Australia to pursue his interest in microelectronics at the University of Western Australia.
During his master’s degree, he was introduced to mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) based infrared detector technology and was involved in electrical and optical characterization of these detectors.
After the completion of his master’s education, he pursued doctoral studies related to the study of Inas/GaInSb superlattice based infrared detectors.
Following graduation, he collaborated in several defence funded projects for developing Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) based infrared tuneable filters.
Currently, he is working as a research fellow under the ARC centre of excellence for transformative meta-optical systems (TMOS) at the University of Western Australia.
