Abstract

Prof. G. Baskaran is a highly acclaimed condensed matter physicist and is internationally known for his contributions to the theory of high temperature superconductivity, strongly correlated electron systems, quantum Hall effect, fullerenes and carbon nanotubes. P.W. Anderson and Baskaran first developed the RVB theory of High-Temperature Superconductivity in 1988. Recently he has been working on the transport of chargeless particles with spin known as "spinons" and has coined a term "Spinonics" to describe the manipulation of these particles. He is also interested in theoretical biology in problems such as gene organization in bacteria, exciton transport in photosynthetic system and electrons transport in DNA.
