Prof. Thirumalai Venkatesan obtained his M.Sc. degree in Physics at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. He then did a Ph.D. from the University of New York. Prof Venkatesan spent 17 years at Bell Labs/ Bellcore as a scientist/research manager, 17 years as a professor of electrical and computer engineering, physics at the center for superconductivity at the University of Maryland.
Thirumalai Venky Venkatesan is the inventor of the pulsed laser deposition process and is a pioneer in its application to thin films of complex oxides and related multi-component materials, which has transformed research on films/ heterostructures globally. Starting with high-quality films of high-temperature cuprate superconductors, he used this for magneto-resistive manganites, ferroelectrics, dilute magnetic oxides, oxide-photocatalysts, bioactive substrates and multiferroic heterostructures that can be integrated with silicon electronics. More recently, his work has extended to ultra-low energy memories and brain-like electronics based on organic molecular systems.
