Golden Jubilee Celebration

The Department of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering started its journey in July, 1965 with a vision to become one of the Leading Departments of this Country with International Repute in the broad domain of Electrical Sciences and Technology through development of Professional Attitude, Analytical and Innovative Mind-sets, and Operational Expertise in the field of Electronics and Tele-Communication Engineering. This year the department is completing a journey of 50 glorious years. Undoubtedly it is a time to celebrate and also plan for further prospect in the near future. Several activities will be organised throughout the year with active cooperation from all the faculty members, staffs, students and other well wishers.

This talk will highlight some of the key early and later developments ofthe field with a loose collection of topics that include timeline, key ideas anddiscoveries, unique aspects of semiconductors, personalities and anecdotes, and somespeculations on the future of semiconductors.Prof. S. Ashok received his B.E. (Hons) degree from the P.S.G. College of Technology, Coimbatore, M.Tech. from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, and the Ph.D. from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA, all in Electrical Engineering. He joined as a faculty of the Department of Engineering Science, the Pennsylvania State University, in 1978 as an Assistant Professor, and became a Professor in1987. His research interests have included Schottky barriers, semiconductor surface/interface modification, ion implantation, plasma/ion beam process-induced defects, and photovoltaics. He initiated, in 1992 and continued to co-organize through 2007, a symposium on Semiconductor Defect Engineering, held regularly at Materials Research Society Spring meetings. He has held several sabbatical and summer appointments at universities and research laboratories around the world and given numerous seminars, review talks, tutorials and short courses. He has also served in the organization of several international conferences, the most recent major undertaking being as co-chair of the Fall 2008 Materials Research Society Meeting in Boston. He is the author or co-author of 200+ publications and 170 conference presentations. He retired from service in June 2017 as Professor Emeritus.
