About the Authors

Jyoti Prasad Banerjee (Bandyopadhyay) received Master’s degree in Physics and PhD degree in (Technology) from the Institute of Radio Physics and electronics, University of Calcutta, India. He is the author of about two hundred publications in reputed scientific journals. He started his teaching career as lecturer in Physics of an undergraduate college affiliated under the University of Calcutta in 1971. After completing PhD degree, he joined as a senior scientist in the Institute of Radio Physics and Electronics, University of Calcutta. Thereafter he joined the Department of Electronic Science, University of Calcutta as Associate Professor in the year, 1989 and subsequently joined the Department of Radio Physics and Electronics of the same University as a full Professor. Later in 2008, he became the Director of Centre of Millimeter wave Semiconductor Devices and Systems (CMSDS) in the University of Calcutta. After his retirement from the University service, he was awarded Emeritus Fellowship by the University Grants Commission, New Delhi, India to work in his parent department. His research interest in general covers microwave, microelectronic, optoelectronic and quantum effect Devices. He has published about 200 research articles in international journals of repute and also a number of text books on Solid State electronic Devices, Basic electrical and Electronics Engineering and Physics of Semiconductor Devices. He has supervised a large number of doctoral theses of students in the field of microwave semiconductor devices. He is the recipient of Indian National Science Academy (INSA) award and Griffith Memorial Prize in Science from the University of Calcutta. He is a Fellow of IETE, New Delhi. He is presently looking after the academic growth and development of Kingston Educational Institute, Barasat, West Bengal, India comprising Science, Technology, Management and Law colleges as Academic Chairman.

Suranjana Banerjee received B.Sc. (Honours), B.Tech and M. Tech degrees all from the University of Calcutta. He was awarded PhD (Engineering) degree from Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST), Shibpur, Howrah, India. She joined the Department of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering, IIEST, Shibpur as an Assistant Professor in the year, 2016. She has authored about 30 research papers in referred technical and scientific journals. Her present area of research is Design and Simulation of Wide Band Gap semiconductors for Terahertz application.
