Prof. Sukumar Basu, Ph.D. in Solid State Chemistry in 1973 from IIT Kharagpur, India, earned post doctoral research experience in the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, University of Vienna, Austria (1972-1974) and in Max Planck Institute for Carbon Research, Muelheim/Ruhr, Germany (1975-1978). In 1979 he joined IIT Kharagpur as a faculty member of Materials Science Center. He spent one year (1995-96) in the State University of Milan as an ICTP senior research fellow. He also spent 3 months (2000) in the Institute of Atom Research, Science City, Tsukuba, Japan as JSPS fellow. He was the foreign expert of the evaluation committee of the Singapore-MIT research alliance of the National University of Singapore (NUS). He also served as the member of the expert committee of the National Program on Smart Materials (NPSM) and the project evaluation committee of the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India. Prof. Basu was the joint investigator of an India-Sweden Research Program funded by Swedish Research Council (SRC) during 2008-2010 and he visited Linkoping University, Sweden. He was a joint investigator of an India-Brazil-South Africa (IBSA) collaborative Research Program involving IIT Kharagpur, India, Sao Paolo University, Brazil and Cape Town University, S. Africa for the period 2011 and 2014. At present he is Professor Emeritus, Dept. of Physics & Materials Science, Jaypee University of Information Technology, India.

This book, "Multilayer Thin Films-Versatile Applications for Materials Engineering", includes thirteen chapters related to the preparations, characterizations, and applications in the modern research of materials engineering. The evaluation of nanomaterials in the form of different shapes, sizes, and volumes needed for utilization in different kinds of gadgets and devices. Since the recently developed two-dimensional carbon materials are proving to be immensely important for new configurations in the miniature scale in the modern technology, it is imperative to innovate various atomic and molecular arrangements for the modifications of structural properties. Of late, graphene and graphene-related derivatives have been proven as the most versatile two-dimensional nanomaterials with superb mechanical, electrical, electronic, optical, and magnetic properties. To understand the in-depth technology, an effort has been made to explain the basics of nano dimensional materials. The importance of nano particles in various aspects of nano technology is clearly indicated. There is more than one chapter describing the use of nanomaterials as sensors. In this volume, an effort has been made to clarify the use of such materials from non-conductor to highly conducting species. It is expected that this book will be useful to the postgraduate and research students as this is a multidisciplinary subject.
