IEEE NTC Young Professionals R10
The summary of the First edition of the IEEE NTC YP R10 webinar series. Two webinars have been conducted hosting the eminent speakers in the broad domain of nanotechnology. There was active reception, registration and participation to this first step in India on behalf of Nanotechnology Council. The webinar details and the photographs are shared below.
The First webinar
- Prof. Brajesh Kumar Kaushik, Professor, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee and
- Dr. Mudrika Khandelwal, Associate professor, Department of Materials Science and Metallurgical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad
Prof. Brajesh Kumar Kaushik, Regional Chapters Coordinator R10 India, the inaugural speaker of the webinar 1 has briefly discussed about the Nanotechnology Council and its details as part of his presentation.
Prof. Brajesh has briefly introduced the guests on Spintronics-Perspectives and Challenges “Conventional CMOS technology has reached to the brink of its scaling limits and poses significant challenges for the development of next generation high-speed ultra-low power costeffective memory and processing devices. These spintronics based novel computing approaches find applications in image processing and provides efficient solution to the complex computing problems. ”
Dr. Mudrika has briefly spoke about “Cellulose – the most common biopolymer – is commonly produced by various organisms such as plants, trees, algae, and bacteria. Bacterial cellulose in particular is attractive owing to its purity, crystallinity, and being composed of a threedimensional network of cellulose nanofibres. However, the most important aspect is the possibility to tune cellulose properties during and post synthesis. We have successfully produced carbon nanofibrous anode by pyrolysis of bacterial cellulose for Lithium-ion batteries and modulated its properties to improve capacity, stability, and rate capability.”
The Second webinar
- Professor. Kamakoti Veezhinathan for his wonderful session on “Journey of indigenous SHAKTI Microprocessor”. and
- Dr. Chandra Shekhar Sharma for his wonderful session on “Candle Soot Nanocarbon for Energy Storage Applications”.
Prof. Kamakoti has briefly introduced the guests with the Open-source processor development initiative by the RISE group at IIT-Madras. The aim is to build an ecosystem of production grade processors, SoC’s and peripheral IP’s. Software Development Kits and IDE’s readily available to build applications on SHAKTI. Various drivers and sensor applications proven on SHAKTI based development boards.
Dr. Chandra Shekhar Sharma delivered a interested lecture on Candle soot. Carbon from candle soot is not only the most facile way to produce nanocarbon but is being explored for a large number of engineering applications including as an electrode for electric vehicles. He discussed briefly some of the latest results from the CARBON Lab, IIT Hyderabad in the talk. Candle soot. Carbon from candle soot is not only the most facile way to produce nanocarbon but is being explored for a large number of engineering applications including as an electrode for electric vehicles. I shall discuss briefly some of the latest results from our CARBON Lab in the talk.
