BAIDYANATH BASU (B.N. BASU)
Professor Baidyanath Basu (B.N. Basu) received B. Tech., M. Tech. and Ph. D degrees from the Institute of Radiophysics and Electronics, Calcutta University in 1965, 1966 and 1976, respectively.
He was superannuated as Professor & Head of Electronics Engineering Department and Coordinator of Centre of Research in Microwave Tubes (CRMT) at Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University (BHU), (now known as Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-BHU), India. Presently he is Adjunct Professor at Sir JC Bose School of Engineering, Supreme Knowledge Foundation Group of Institutions, Mankundu, West Bengal, India. Earlier, besides IIT-BHU and SKFGI-Mankundu, he served several other organizations in India: National Institute of Technology, Jamshedpur; CSIR-Central Electronics Engineering Research Institute (CEERI), Pilani; DRDO-Defence Electronics Research Laboratory, Hyderabad; College of Engineering and Technology, IFTM, Moradabad.
He was in the team responsible for the development of the first ever travelling-wave tube (TWT) in the country. He was one of the members of the DST Steering Committee of the multi-institutional project in which the first ever gyrotron in the country for fusion plasma heating was developed. He was Distinguished Visiting Scientist of CSIR at CEERI-Pilani and Consultant to DRDO-MTRDC-Bangalore. He at present takes a leadership role in the indigenous development of space-qualified TWTs in the country. He played a pivotal role in establishing MOUs (i) between Department of Electronics Engineering, IIT-BHU and CSIR-CEERI, Pilani; (ii) between Seoul National University and CSIR-CEERI, Pilani; and (iii) between SKFGI, Mankundu and CSIR-CEERI, Pilani. He is Golden Reviewer of IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices. He is on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Electromagnetic Waves and Applications and he guest-edited Special Issue on Microwave Tubes and Applications: Issue 17, Vol. 31, 2017 of the Journal of Electromagnetic Waves and Applications (Taylor and Francis).
Professor Basu took visiting assignments abroad at Lancaster University, UK; Seoul National University, Korea; Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany; and University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu. He was President of Vacuum Electronic Devices and Application Society, India.
Professor Basu has authored (or co-authored) >125 research papers in journals of international repute (including >40 in IEEE Transactions) and 6 monograph chapters in the area of vacuum electron devices (microwave tubes).
He has authored 4 books: (i) Electromagnetic Theory and Applications in Beam-Wave Electronics (World Scientific, Singapore/New Jersey/London/Hong Kong, 1996) (ii) Technical Writing (Prentice-Hall of India, New Delhi, 2007), (iii) Engineering Electromagnetics Essentials (Universities Press, Hyderabad, 2015) (distributed by Orient Blackswan, India) and (iv) High Power Microwave Tubes: Basics and Trends (Vol. 1 and Vol. 2), Morgan & Claypool Publishers, California, USA with IOP Publishing, Bristol, UK 2018) (with Vishal Kesari as the co-author). He is on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Electromagnetic Waves and Applications and he guest-edited Special Issue on Microwave Tubes and Applications: Issue 17, Vol 31, 2017 of the Journal of Electromagnetic Waves and Applications (Taylor and Francis publication). He served on the Technical Committee on Vacuum Electronic Devices of the IEEE Electron Devices Society. He is recipient of the SVC Aiya Memorial Award of IETE, India; Lifetime Achievement Award of the Vacuum Electronic Devices and Application Society, India; and Microwave Pioneer Award of International Symposium of Microwaves, India.
