Prof. Mayank Shrivastava receive Swarnajayanti Fellowship Award 2020-2021
Prof. Mayank Shrivastava, received the fellowship for his “outstanding contributions in the broad field of engineering sciences”. Prof Shrivastava broadly works on applications of emerging materials like Gallium Nitride (GaN), atomically thin two-dimensional materials like Graphene and TMDCs, in electronic and electro-optic devices working closer to its fundamental limits (like the ability to handle extreme powers, ability to work at THz like ultra-high frequencies, or ability to compute information in unconventional ways). Currently, his group is developing few-atom thick neuromorphic circuits (ICs), GaN-based ultra-high-power devices with high reliability, and devices/circuits for operation at THz frequencies. Prof Shrivastava is also one of the co-founders of a GaN manufacturing start-up named AGNIT Semiconductors Pvt. Ltd. Prof Shrivastava’s work has resulted in over 150 peer-reviewed publications and 50 patents. Most of these patents are either licensed by semiconductor companies or are in use in their products. As part of this fellowship, his group will be working on novel devices emulating brain like (computational) behaviour.
