About the Topic:

Semiconductors have played an important role in the development of information and communications technology, solar cells, solid state lighting. Nanowires are considered as building blocks for the next generation electronics and optoelectronics. In this talk, I will present the results on optoelectronic devices such as lasers/LEDs, THz detectors, energy devices such as solar cells, photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting and Neuro-electrodes. Future prospects of the semiconductor nanowires will be discussed.

About the Speaker:

Dr Chennupati Jagadish obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Physics from the Acharya Nagarjuna University in Tenali, Andhra Pradesh in the year 1977. He received his Master of Science in Applied Physics with a specialisation in Electronics from Andhra University in the year 1980. He acquired his PhD in Physics, by working on ‘Semiconducting Thin Films’, from the University of Delhi in the year 1986. He also held the position of a post-doctoral fellow in the Queens University.

Dr Jagadish moved to the Australian National University in the year 1990 and joined the newly established Department of Electronic Materials Engineering in the Research School of Physics and Engineering. He was the Vice-President and Secretary at the Australian Academy of Science for Physical Sciences for four years.

Committed to his role as an academician, Dr Jagadish also holds many honorary and guest faculty positions around the world in leading Universities such as the Oxford University, the Cambridge University, South Central University (The Republic of China), the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, the University of Tokyo and the Taiwan National University to name a few.

He makes a frequent appearance, by invitation, to various international conferences and seminars on Material Sciences, Electronics, Quantum Electronics, Semiconductors, Physics, Photonics, and Material Sciences. As an active member of the Material Research Society, IEEE, he has delivered many talks and guest lectures as well as organised several sessions in MRS, IEEE meetings throughout the world.

Dr Chennupati Jagadish is currently the Editor-in-Chief for Applied Physics Reviews. He was earlier the Editor-in-Chief for Progress in Quantum electronics and Co-Editor-in-chief for the International Journal of High-Speed Electronics and Systems. He is also the Editor for the Journal of Semiconductor Technology and Science, Springer Series in Material Science, Springer Series in Nanoptics and Nanophotonics, Elsevier Series in Semiconductors and Semimetals, IEEE Electron Device Letters, and Light: Science and Applications of Nature Publishing Group. He is a member of the Editorial Boards of over 20 journals including ACS Nano, Physica Status Solidi: Rapid Res. Lett., IEEE Nanotechnology Magazine, IEEE Photonics Journal, Solid State Electronics, among others.

Dr Jagadish holds many laurels to his name. He became a Champion of the Order of Australia for his eminent contributions to Physics and Engineering at the Australia Day Honours 2016. He has acquired the IEEE Pioneer Award in Nanotechnology (2015), the Walter Boas Medal from the Australian Institute of Physics (2013) and the Thomas Ranken Lyle Medal from the Australian Academy of Science (2019).

He became an elected Fellow of the American Physical Society (2003). In 2020, he also became an elected member of the National Academy of Engineering for his contributions to the nanotechnology of optoelectronic devices. The Australian Research Council awarded him with the Federation Fellowship (2004-09) and with the Laureate Fellowship (2009-14).

It would be a privilege to have Dr Chennupati Jagadish, an astoundingly celebrated research personality, in our midst. We urge everyone to make the most of this opportunity. The University Distinguished Lecture (UDL) hosted by SRM University-AP is attended by about 2000 members from IITs, NITs, IISERs, Universities/Institutions, CSIR, DST, DBT, DRDO, DAE, ISRO, NARL, MoES and several others from different parts of the country.

SRM University-AP cordially invites everyone to the fourteenth University distinguished Lecture on January 22, 2022, Saturday at 11.00 am IST.
