Prof. K. B. R. Varma received the PhD degree in
Physics from Madras University, Chennai, India
in 1981. He was a postdoctoral researcher with
the Dept. of Pure and Applied Chemistry, Strathclyde
University, Glasgow, United Kingdom. He then joined
the Indian Institute of Science, where he is currently
a professor with the Materials Research Centre.
His research interests include dielectrics, ferroelectrics,
non-linear optics and electro-optics. The focus
has been on functional ceramics, glass nanocrystal
composites, single crystals etc.
- Dielectrics (ceramics, single crystals, glass
nano/microcrystal composites, thin films)
- Ferroelectrics including relaxors
- Electro-optics (Both organic and inorganic)
- Non-linear optics
