Chandan Kumar Mukhopadhyay
Chandan Kumar Mukhopadhyay received B.E. (1982) and Ph.D. degrees (2003) both in metallurgical engineering joined Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research, Kalpakkam, Tamil Nadu, India, in 1985 after completing one-year orientation course in nuclear science and engineering and nuclear metallurgy from Bhabha Atomic Research Centre. Presently, he is Head of Electromagnetic Measurements and Structural Integrity Section (EMSIS) in Non Destructive Evaluation Division of Metallurgy and Materials Group, IGCAR. He is also Associate Professor in Homi Bhabha National Institute, Kalpakkam. Mukhopadhyay has been working in characterization of defects, microstructure, deformation, fatigue, crack growth, and fracture behavior in materials using nondestructive evaluation (NDE) techniques including acoustic emission (AE), ultrasonic, electromagnetic, and thermography. He has carried out studies on deformation, fatigue, and fracture behavior of different materials using AE. He has used acoustic emission for process monitoring and electromagnetic techniques for defect detection. He has also worked in structural integrity monitoring of components. Mukhopadhyay was a Visiting Scientist in Shanghai Research Institute of Materials, China, 2003 and Postdoctoral Fellow in the University of Nevada Las Vegas, USA, during 2006-2007. He received many awards including SAIL Gold Medal for best paper in the Transactions of the Indian Institute of Metals and National NDT Award.
