Manoj B. Pandey
Manoj B. Pandey is working as an Assistant Professor of physics at VSSD College Kanpur, India, since 2009. His thrust area of research is experimental soft condensed matter physics. He had received his M.S. degree in physics from the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India, in 2000 and Ph.D. degree in science on the topic ‘Study of the Chiral Phases of Liquid Crystals’ from University of Allahabad, Allahabad, India, in 2005. He is recipient of Young Scientist Project Award of Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India, in 2005 and 2009, and Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS), Government of India, in 2010. He was awarded with prestigious BOYSCAST fellowship of DST, Government of India, in 2010, for advanced training in the field of electronic materials and processing at Liquid Crystals Material Research Centre (LCMRC), University of Colorado at Boulder, USA, under the fellowship. His major research interests have been dielectric, electrooptic, and nonlinear optical properties of liquid crystals. His research activities are focused on cholesteric liquid crystals colloids, nanostructure particles dispersed in liquid crystals, antiferroelectric and ferroelectric liquid crystals, twist grain boundary phases, and chiral smectic C subphases (SmC*?, SmC*?, and SmC*?). He has published more than thirty research papers in international journals of repute including three review articles. He is also Coeditor of Proceeding of 11th National Conference on Liquid Crystals: Synthesis, Characterization, and Molecular Engineering (2004). He was invited to deliver talk at Military University of Technology at Warsaw, Poland, and University of Colorado at Boulder, USA. He is Life Member of the Indian Liquid Crystal Society, Indian Physics Association, and International Liquid Crystal Society.
