Vinod Kumar Khanna received the Ph.D. degree in physics from Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra (Haryana), India, in 1988. From 1977 to 1979, he was a Research Assistant with the Physics Department, Lucknow University. He joined the solid-state devices division of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR)-Central Electronics Engineering Research Institute (CEERI), Pilani in April, 1980. During his tenure of more than 34 years of service at CSIR-CEERI, he worked on various research and development projects on thin-film aluminum oxide humidity sensor, power semiconductor devices (high-current and high-voltage rectifier, high-voltage TV deflection transistor, power Darlington transistor, fast switching thyristor, power DMOSFET and IGBT), PIN diode neutron dosimeter and PMOSFET gamma ray dosimeter, ion-sensitive field-effect transistor (ISFET), microheater-embedded gas sensor, capacitive MEMS ultrasonic transducer, and other MEMS devices. He superannuated in November 2014 as Chief Scientist & Head, MEMS & Microsensors Group, and Professor, AcSIR (Academy of Scientific & Innovative Research). Presently, he is working as an Emeritus Scientist, CSIR and Emeritus Professor, AcSIR. His research interests are micro- and nanosensors, and power semiconductor devices. He is a fellow of the Institution of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineers (IETE), India. He is a life member of Indian Physics Association (IPA), Semiconductor Society (India), and Indo-French Technical Association (IFTA).Dr. Khanna has published 8 previous books, 6 chapters in edited books, and 175 research papers in national/international journals and conference proceedings; he holds two US and two Indian patents.
