FORMER DIRECTOR (1996 - 2001)

 

Dr. Kakodkar played a key role in the design and construction of Dhruva. He has contributed immensely in the indigenous development of a large number of critical systems of Indian PHWRs. During his career spanning four and a half decades, he has built a competent team of highly specialized Scientists and Engineers, for the Reactor Programme.

He also advocated the development of technologies, for the use of Thorium, taking into account our limited uranium resources. To gain industrial scale experience in the use of Thorium, he conceptualized the Advanced Heavy Water Reactor, which aims to derive two thirds of its power from Thorium.

He conceptualized part of the 9th Five Year Plan dealing with R&D sector, and made several important changes in the organization structure of the Centre. The 1998 Pokhran tests were conducted under his tenure.

India became a part of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor - (ITER). under the Directorship of Dr. Kakodkar. Under the aegis of the Homi Bhabha National Institute - (HBNI), Dr. Kakodkar conceptualized a unique PhD programme. He was also instrumental in the creation of the UGC-DAE Consortium, wherein the R&D facilities of DAE are made available to University students.

FORMER DIRECTOR (2001 - 2004)

 

He took over as Director, on April 3, 2001. Earlier, he was Project Director, Rare Materials Project, Mysore, and Director, Chemical Engineering and Technology Group, BARC. 

He was a key person in the building of the Uranium Corporation of India Limited, Jaduguda, Bihar, which supplies the entire uranium needed for India's nuclear electricity programme. Later, Bhattacharjee switched over to multidisciplinary R & D activities at BARC, Mumbai.

for the development of High Speed Rotor (HSR) needed for producing enriched uranium and other strategic materials. The successful commissioning of HSR technology in India has put the country among a select band and enabled production of some materials of "strategic importance".

Bhattacharjee played a key role in two other projects: desalination plant coupled to a nuclear electricity station and the Special Materials Project. BARC has already supplied 15 desalination plants to different States. A massive desalination plant, adjacent to the Madras Atomic Power Station at Kalpakkam (NDDP), was also constructed under his guidance.

FORMER DIRECTOR (2004- 2010)
 
Dr S. Banerjee is internationally well known for his work in the field of physical metallurgy and materials science.

He has contributed extensively in the basic research on metallurgy of zirconium and titanium based alloys and their applications in the development of thermo-mechanical treatments for processing several nuclear reactor components.His work provides a basis for analysing the radiation stability of structural materials in nuclear reactors.

The contributions of Dr Banerjee and his colleagues with regard to the development of shape memory alloys and their applications in heat shrinkable couplings are finding extensive applications in the light combat aircraft project. An Distinguished Scientist, Dr Banerjee has been the recipient of many awards and honours.

These include Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Award in Engineering Sciences (1989), G.D. Birla Gold Medal of the Indian Institute of Metals (1997), INSA Prize for Materials Science (2001) and Indian Nuclear Society Award (2003).

Notable among the international awards received by him are Acta Metallurgica Outstanding Paper Award (1984) and Humboldt Research Award (2004). Dr Banerjee is a Fellow of Indian National Science Academy, Indian Academy of Sciences, Indian National Academy of Engineering and the National Academy of Sciences.
