Background

After completing the school and college education in India, Brahm Swaroop Bhandari went to the United States to pursue his doctoral studies in physics at Ohio University. His doctoral thesis in 1974 was on the sub-barrier photofission of 238U. Since then he has extensively studied the multi-humped fission barrier characteristics of the actinide- and transactinide nuclei. He has developed analytical tools and models to understand subbarrier fission phenomena. He has led several graduate students and colleagues in these investigations at several institutions around the globe.
