Padinharu Madathil Gopalakrishnan Nambissan
Padinharu Madathil Gopalakrishnan Nambissan did his M.S. degree in physics from University of Calicut, Kerala, in 1986 and Ph.D. degree from Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Kolkata, in 1991. After a brief stint as a Research Associate, he joined the faculty of Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics in 1993, and currently he is a Professor G in the Applied Nuclear Physics Division of the institute. Professor Nambissan has carried out research in several branches of solid-state physics like positron annihilation studies in metals and alloys, quasi-crystals, superconductors, and nanomaterials. Of late, his most important areas of interest are semiconductor, nanomaterials, and nanospinels. He has published more than ninety research papers in peer-reviewed international journals and almost an equal number in national and international conferences, edited volumes, workshops, and symposia. In addition to this, he has also delivered invited talks at a number of places like Tyndall National Institute, Cork, Ireland, and Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India. He has attended international conferences in several countries (China, USA, Germany, Japan, Canada, Czech Republic, Thailand, the Netherlands, Slovak, Ireland, and UK) and presented papers, besides giving talks in several national seminars, workshops, universities, and institutions. For a year (i.e., 2009), he had worked on deputation as the Course Director for the Department of Nanoscience of Kannur University in Kerala. He taught there courses like solid-state physics, experimental techniques, nuclear chemistry, and astrophysics in the Departments of Physics and Chemistry.
