Dr. Padmanabhan Predeep is currently Professor of Physics at the National Institute of Technology Calicut, a premier public sector Institute of National Importance for technical education and research in India. It belongs to Mavelikara, a small town in the southern Indian state of Kerala. Besides having a long innings - spanning almost three decades- in teaching physics at various levels and advising an appreciable number of doctoral theses, he possess a remarkable research profile too. He has more than 150 scientific publications including books and book chapters and six patents to his credit, Professor Predeep’s recent research interests are Unconventional Electronics and Photonics and he is actively engaged in developing hitherto unknown micro applications for natural rubber and other elastomers in organic electronics and photonics. He made a land mark achievement in this connection when he recently reported for the first time the synthesis of intrinsically conducting natural rubber nanoparticles. One of his major concerns other than research pursuits is the social impact of science and technology, on environment and marginalized social groups and the imbalances thereupon in the distribution of its fruits and adverse impacts on these stake holders.

Optoelectronics - Devices and Applications is the second part of an edited anthology on the multifaced areas of optoelectronics by a selected group of authors including promising novices to experts in the field. Photonics and optoelectronics are making an impact multiple times as the semiconductor revolution made on the quality of our life. In telecommunication, entertainment devices, computational techniques, clean energy harvesting, medical instrumentation, materials and device characterization and scores of other areas of R&D the science of optics and electronics get coupled by fine technology advances to make incredibly large strides. The technology of light has advanced to a stage where disciplines sans boundaries are finding it indispensable. New design concepts are fast emerging and being tested and applications developed in an unimaginable pace and speed. The wide spectrum of topics related to optoelectronics and photonics presented here is sure to make this collection of essays extremely useful to students and other stake holders in the field such as researchers and device designers.
