Subarna Samanta

Debye prize-winner: 

University of Minnesota Twin Cities
Minneapolis, MN, United States

Research interests
Include the effects of (both ac and dc) high electric fields on the behavior of supercooled liquids and glasses, and the connection between dynamics and thermodynamics of viscous materials.

"Dr. Subarna Samanta has played an essential role in studying the effects of a dc bias, rather than ac electric field, on the dielectric response of supercooled liquids as motivated by the notion that a high field reduces the entropy, which in turn increases viscosity and relaxation times. He has performed research at the forefront of the field and has demonstrated his creativity and in-depth understanding of the science involved."
