Archana Raja


Staff Scientist, Molecular Foundry

Dr. Archana Raja is a Staff Scientist in the Imaging and Manipulation of Nanostructures Facility at the Molecular Foundry, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. Her research focuses on how energy, charge and information can be manipulated in nanoscale quantum materials and their heterostructures. Using multimodal characterization techniques, she bridges fundamental understanding of optoelectronic phenomena from the application-scale to the atom-scale.  She is the recipient of the Berkeley Lab Director’s Award for Exceptional Early Scientific Career Achievement, Kavli ENSI Heising-Simons Junior Fellowship, Blanche R. and David Kasindorf Fellowship in Physical Chemistry at Columbia University and the Institute Silver Medal at the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay.
