Professor Muralidhar Miryala
Muralidhar Miryala is board of councilor at Shibaura Institute of Technology (SIT), Japan, and professor at the Graduate School of Science and Engineering, and College of Engineering, SIT. His main task is to transform SIT into a high rank university. To accomplish this goal, he has been working towards designing numerous innovative programs to enhance global initiatives for SIT. Consequently, his interest in the applications and technology of bulk single-grain superconductors led him to develop a new class of mixed LRE-123 system that can be used up to 15 T at 77 K and high temperatures up to 90.2 K. He also developed a novel technology to produce a RE-123 type silver-sheathed wire on the basis of the solid-state/liquid-phase reaction. His intellectual mindset enabled him to produce a small-type superconducting bulk magnet that is useful for magnetizing both high-Tc superconducting materials and magnetic materials in a variety of industrial applications. Dr. Miryala also contributed toward the development of DC superconducting cable for railway system applications. He has authored or co-authored more than 500 scientific contributions in international journals and delivered over 150 oral presentations, including plenary and invited ones. He holds several Japanese national and international patents. He has received several awards for his research contributions, including the prestigious 2021 Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Award by the President of India. Dr. Miryala is editor-in-chief and an editorial board member of several international journals. Further he also adjunct professor, visiting professor and international advisor for several universities in worldwide.
