Papers from my master’s thesis published:

I finished my masters about seven years ago from Penn State. Over the weekend on a whimsical note, I was doing a cursory search on the internet for any references to the work I had done as part of my masters.
I had not expected to get any results whatsoever - but I was pleasantly surprised to see the following seven papers published in the journals and cnoference proceedings and thought I should share this with you...

Maybe I should have pursued on... (who knows?)

"Love-wave-based ice sensor"
Sunil Gangadaran, Vasundara V. Varadan, Vijay K. Varadan, K. A. Jose, and Massood Z. Atashbar
The Pennsylvania State Univ. (USA) Proceedings of SPIE -- Volume 3673 Smart Structures and Materials 1999: Smart Electronics and MEMS, July 1999, pp. 287-293
This paper has a better abstract here.

Love wave surface acoustic wave sensor for ice detection on aircraft.”
Vasundara V. Varadan, Sunil Gangadharan, and Vijay K. Varadan
The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America -- October 1999 -- Volume 106, Issue 4, p. 2269

"Wireless IDT ice sensor"
Jose, K.A.; Sunil, Gangadharan.; Varadan, V.K.; Varadan, V.V.,
Microwave Symposium Digest, 2002 IEEE MTT-S International, Volume: 2, 2002, 655pp.

"Wireless surface acoustic wave based humidity sensor"

The Journal of the Acoustical Society of America -- November 2000 -- Volume 108, Issue 5, p. 2599

Perturbation theory for attenuation of a surface acoustic wave employed in my thesis also gets mention here. (Section 7 in the paper and reference 28)

I found the following conference papers also that I had worked on...

-V.K. Varadan, V.V. Varadan, S.Gangadharan, J.A. Kollakompil, and M.Z. Atahsbar
“Strain based SAW Accelerometer”
SPIE’s 6th Annual International Symposium on Smart Structures and Material, California USA, 1-5th March (1999).

-V.K. Varadan, V.V. Varadan, S. Gangadharan, J.A. Kollakompil, and M.Z. Atahsbar
“Love-wave ice sensor”
