Baldev Raj has rendered yeoman service to the Department of Atomic Energy over a 42-year period until 2011. As Distinguished Scientist and Director, Indira Gandhi Centre of Atomic Research, Kalpakkam, he galvanized a whole community of staff, scientists and engineers for advancing several challenging technologies, especially those related to the fast breeder test reactor (FBTR) and the prototype fast breeder reactor (PFBR). He has nurtured and grown excellent schools in nuclear materials and mechanics, non-destructive evaluation, corrosion, welding, separation sciences & technology and robotics & automation. These schools have delivered science based technological solutions to strategic sectors, industries and have created strong groups in leading educational institutions. His unique accomplishment has been breaking barriers between academia-research and research-industry in order to realize tangible and significant outcomes in high technology domains. Dr. Baldev Raj has played a pioneering role in mastering the technology of complex post-irradiation examination (PIE) to achieve a burn up of 165 GWd/tonne of Pu-rich carbide. Dr.Raj has pioneered application of NDE for basic research using acoustic and electromagnetic techniques in a variety of materials and components. He is also responsible for realising societal applications of NDE in areas related to cultural heritage and medical diagnosis. His widely acclaimed contributions relate to understanding deformation using acoustic and magnetic Barkhausen methods, studies on stability and functional characterization of ferrofluids, corrosion mechanisms and specific sensors for high sensitivity and relevant measurements in a wide spectrum of
