About the Author

Ram Gopal Sharma is an emeritus scientist at the Inter-University Accelerator Centre (IUAC) in New Delhi, India and Advisor to the Cryogenics and Applied Superconductivity Group on the project Indigenous Development of a 1.5 T MRI magnet System sponsored by the Ministry of Electronics and Telecommunication, government of India. He has been active in the fields of superconducting materials, superconducting magnets and low-temperature physics for 57 years. In 2001 he retired from National Physical Laboratory, New Delhi as Deputy Director and Head of the Division of Cryogenics and Superconductivity. During the period 2003 - 2009 he was a visiting professor the Legano National Laboratory (INFN), Padova University, Italy, where he lectured on superconducting materials and mentored Laurea and PhD students.Dr. Sharma guided 10 Ph.D. students on superconducting materials and magnets and has published close to 120 research papers in international peer-reviewed journals such as Physical Review, Cryogenics, Journal of Low-Temperature Physics, journal of Physics and IEEE Transactions. So far he has delivered about 200 lectures at various national symposia. He has also delivered 168 invited talks and course lectures to masters and PhD students both in India and Italy after his retirement in 2001. He was the Chief Editor Indian Journal of Cryogenics from 2014 to 2020. He is the recipient of Indian Cryogenics Council (ICC) Lifetime Achievement Award (2014), the Prof. R. Srinivasan Award for Low Temperature Physics/Cryogenic (2003), the 1996 Materials Research Society of India Medal, the NPL Merit Award (1977), and the A. N. Chatterjee Memorial Award (1977).
