La Trobe University
Vibhor Thapliyal is a PhD student in the Eϵmc2 lab under the Department of Engineering at La Trobe University in Bendigo, Australia. His PhD research aims to fabricate 3-D tunable photonic crystals for space-based mm-Wave, Terahertz, and Infrared communications, a collaborative project between SmartSat CRC and La Trobe University to enhance major satellite systems and solve advanced communications challenges. Thapliyal completed his Masters of Engineering in manufacturing engineering from La Trobe University in 2021 and has coordinated the High-Altitude Advanced-Materials & Engineering Research (HAAMER) project during his degree.
Project Title: Fabrication of 3-D, Wavelength-Tuneable Photonic Crystals for Space-Based Mm-Wave, Terahertz, and Infrared Communications
