Prof. V.V. Srinivasu
Professor of Physics and Research Chair for Superconductivity Technology University of South Africa (UNISA) South Africa.
Prof V.V. Srinivasu obtained his PhD from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India. He did his PhD on Non-resonant Microwave & RF absorption in High Tc Cuprate Superconductors. He then worked as a Postdoc and Research Associate at prestigious institutions like Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, University of Maryland, College Park, USA, Texas Center for Superconductivity, Houston and as a Japanese Society for Promostion of Science (JSPS) fellow in Japan. Moved to CSIR South Africa in 2008 as a Senior Researcher and then as a full Professor at University of South Africa (UNISA). He has over 60 publications.
His mile stone works are:
- Discovery of Colossal Magneto Impedance in Manganites
- Anamolous Microwave and Rf absorption in Cuprate superconductors.
Currently his research activities are
- Lowfield or Non-resonant microwave absorption in Superconductors and magnetic materials
- Electron Spin Resonance in certain novel magnetic materials
- Sub-micron and Nano lithography and Josephson Junctions
- Nano magnetics and Spintronics etc.
Currently he is Research Chair for Superconductivity Technology at UNISA.
