PortraitSamrath Chaplot, Ph.D., is a Senior Professor and the Head of the Solid State Physics Division at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, India. His research is focused on neutron scattering experiments, lattice dynamics and molecular dynamics computer simulations to investigate the structures and dynamics of condensed matter. Professor Chaplot has published over 160 papers in scientific journals, and over 250 conference publications and book contributions. He has received numerous fellowships and awards including the prestigious Homi Bhabha Award for Science and Technology, presented by DAE, India.Narayani Choudhury, Ph.D., is a senior scientist at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre in Mumbai. From 1992 to 1994, she was a visiting researcher at the University of Washington, and from 2003 to 2004 at the Carnegie Institution of Washington. Dr. Choudhury's research has provided microscopic insights into various novel phenomena of technologically important materials studied via lattice dynamics and computer simulation techniques. She has also been involved in the application of first principles simulations of multifunctional materials.Ranjan Mittal, Ph.D., a senior scientist at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, currently holds a post as a visiting scientist at the Jülich Centre for Neutron Research, Germany. He has carried out intensive studies in lattice dynamics and inelastic neutron scattering of a wide variety of materials, including novel negative thermal expansion materials, minerals, advanced oxide ceramics, etc. These studies involved experiments at various international facilities. Dr. Mittal has won numerous awards including the Best Thesis award.
