Veer Pal Singh Awana
V. P S Awana received his Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Delhi, India, in 1994. He completed his thesis work on high-Tc superconductivity. The experimental work was mainly carried out in the National Physical Laboratory, New Delhi. Later, he had numerous visiting scientist assignments in various reputed international laboratories such as TIFR Mumbai (India), UNICAMP Campinas (Brazil), ISEM-UOW (Australia), MPI-Stuttgart (Germany), TITECH Yokohama (Japan), and NIMS (Japan) before joining NPL, India, as a scientist in 2002. During the process, he received various international fellowships such as FAPESp, JSPS, ICYS, and MPG. He is the recipient of the prestigious Indian National Science Academy (INSA) Young Scientist Medal, DAE-Young Achievers Award, and Rajib Goyal Medal. He has contributed significantly to the field of superconductors and magnetic materials and has published over 175 research articles in SCI journals. His current research interest includes the magneto-superconductivity of ruthenocuprates, the magnetic ground state of FeAs-based superconductors, magnetic particles embedded MgB2 superconductors, the magnetoresistive manganite composites, and the charge-ordered magnetic ferrites, cobaltates, and chromates.
