Dr. Amit Banerjee received Ph.D. degree in Semiconductor Technology from Energy Research Unit, Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science (D.S.T., Govt. of India) and joined the Advanced Device Research Division, Research Institute of Electronics, Shizuoka University, National University Corporation, Japan as a Scientific Researcher. Amit has extensively worked on high vacuum plasma CVD reactors, which are heavily used in industrial manufacturing of solar cells, coatings and TFTs. He also developed low cost high vacuum MW-PECVD unit during his Ph.D. work and had conceived the process for cost effective commercial grade antireflection coatings (ARC) synthesis for solar cells by Nanocrytalline diamonds. His current work is on Terahertz Technology, including THz devices (sensors and sources) fabrication for surveillance, inspection, biomedical, imaging and deep space exploration applications. Amit has received several awards including Young Physicist Award and honorary life-membership from Indian Physical Society, Award by the Metrology Society of India (MSI), Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers (IIChE), Award by Dept. of Atomic Energy (D.A.E.), and featured in Advances in Engineering, USA.
