Dr. Ramaswamy Jagannathan is presently the Adjunct Professor of Physics
Chennai Mathematical Institute. Most of his carrier was the The Institute of Mathematical Sciences (MATSCIENCE/IMSc)
Ramaswamy Jagannathan did MSc in Physics from the University of Madras in 1971.
He did PhD under the supervision of Alladi Ramakrishnan, the Founder-Director of The Institute of Mathematical Sciences (MATSCIENCE/IMSc). For his Doctoral Work, he received the Governor-Chancellor's Centenary Prize Gold Medal
for 1976 (Award for the Best Thesis in Science).
Jagannathan and collaborators initiated the "Quantum theory of charged-particle beam optics", by working out the focusing action of a magnetic quadrupole using the Dirac Equation.
