Dr. S. Devanarayanan was educated at the UniversityCollege, Thiruvananthapuram, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, andInstitute of Physics, Uppsala, Sweden. He was the Professor and Head of theDepartment of Physics, University of Kerala during 1993-2000; and has 37 yearsof teaching/research experience in Physics and Material Science. He has to hiscredit over 80 published research papers in standard scientific periodicals and42 presentations in National and International Science events. A Monographtitled Thermal Expansion of Crystals (Pergamon Press Oxford, 1979) wasco-authored by him. He has served as a Professor in Physics at the Universityof Puerto Rico, USA, during 1989-91. A life member of various academic bodieslike the Indian Physics Association, American Physical Society, and Fellow ofthe Indian Cryogenic Council, his biography has found place a number of timesin the publications of Marquis 'Who's Who (USA), International BiographicalCentre (UK), American Biographical Institute, Refacimento International, etc.

He had the special honour of being invited by the RoyalSwedish Academy to submit proposals for the award of the Nobel prize for 1995.he has made academic visits to Sweden, Finland, Leningrad (USSR).
