Homaira Parchamy

Adjunct Professor

Homaira Parchamy completed her Ph.D. in 2005 under the supervision of Professors Yasushi Nishida and Noboru Yugami in the Department of Energy and Environment Science, Graduate School of Engineering at Utsunomiya University, Utsunomiya, Japan. Dr. Parchamy has worked in many different topic areas, including laser-matter interaction science and its applications, the EUV source for next generation semiconductor lithography, short wavelength laser, THz source, ultrashort femtosecond laser, advanced photonics, and charged particle engineering. After graduation, she worked for several years as a Research Associate at the National Institute for Fusion Science and Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan. Since 2011, Dr. Parchamy has continued her work as a Research Scientist on laser-matter interaction, advanced optical metrology, and plasma VUV/EUV/X-ray light source technology in the Laser Plasma Laboratory, College of Optics and Photonics, University of Central Florida. For more information regarding any work, please feel free to contact her directly.
