      Biography:  M.K. Radhakrishnan (M’82-SM’94) received B.Sc from Kerala University, India in 1972, M.Sc in Solid State electronics from Sardar Patel University, India in 1975 and Ph.Ddegree in Semiconductor Physics from Cochin University of Science and Technology in 1981.


      He is currently Directorof NanoRel Technical Consultants Singapore from 2004.  He has been with Indian Space Research Organization till 1990. From 1991-1993 he was with ST Microelectronics Singapore. From 1993 to 2001 he was with Institute of Microelectronics Singapore, where he pioneered the setting up of a full-fledged device failure analysis laboratory.  From 1994 to 2004 he served as adjunct professor at National University of Singapore. His current research interests include analysis and reliability in nano-electronic devices and interface physics studies.


      Dr. Radhakrishnan is a fellow of Institution of Electrical and Telecommunication Engineers India, member of Electron Device Failure Analysis Society (EDFAS) USA and ESD Association USA.  He served as Editor of Journal of Semiconductor Technology and Science (Korea) during 2001-2003 and is an Editorial board member of Microelectronics Reliability journal (UK). He served as Guest Editor to IEEE Transactions Devices Materials and Reliability and edited or co-edited of 4 conference proceedings.  He was Technical Chair IEEE International Symposium on Physical and Failure Analysis of ICs (IPFA) in 1995 and 1997 and General Chair of IPFA in 1999.  He was IEEEIEDST General Chair in 2009. He has been in the technical program committees of ESREF, IRPS, EPTC, MIEL, ICEE and EOS/ESD Symposium.  Currently he is the Editor-in Chief of IEEE EDS Newsletter and serves as a member of IEEE EDS Technical Committee on Electronic Materials.  He is a Distinguished Lecturer of IEEE Electron Devices Society.

      Charles Surya received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Rochester in 1987. From 1987 to 1994 he was associated with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of Northeastern University.  He joined the Electronic and Information Engineering (EIE) Department in 1994 and remained there since.  Professor Surya’s research interests are: optoelectronic materials and devices including MOCVD growth of GaN thin films and the study of GaN-based LEDs and UV detectors; growth of organic-inorganic hybrid perovskite materials and the fabrication of advanced perovskite based photovoltaic cells; and low-frequency noise in electron devices. Presently, Professor Surya is spearheading a collaborative effort between The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the City of Dongguan, China for the establishment of an R&D Center on the study of photovoltaic materials, devices and systems.  He became a full professor of the Department in 2002andsince 2013hewas appointed Clarea Au Endowed Professor in Energy.  Professor Surya had served in various administrative posts including Associate Head of the EIE Department (2002-2005), Associate Dean of the Faculty of Engineering (2007 – 2010) and the Acting Dean of the Faculty of Engineering (2010 – 2012) of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.  While serving as the Associate Dean and Acting Dean of the Faculty he was responsible for the implementation of outcome-based approach in the Engineering Faculty.  From 2007 – 2013 Professor Surya was the The Hong Kong Polytechnic University representative to the Hong Kong University Grants Council Panel for Outcome-based Education to oversee the implementation of Outcome-based Approach among the Engineering Faculties in Hong Kong.  He had been active in EDS and had served in various capacities including conference co-chair and chapter chair in the past.  He is presently serving as the Chairman of the Optoelectronic Devices Technical Committee.
