International Workshop ends on high note
The School of Physics and Materials Science, Shoolini University, organised a three-day International workshop on Advanced Characterization Techniques for Materials (ACTM-2021), which concluded today.
The workshop gave a chance to the participants to explore the latest research in designing of smart materials and possibilities of applying various instrumental techniques and innovations in materials science.
It also provided a forum to the research scholars and faculty to interact with the leading experts in these areas and disseminate relevant information on various aspects of characterization techniques, current trends in nano-materials for understanding futuristic scenario in nanotechnology.
Shoolini University Chancellor Prof PK Khosla congratulated Prof Rajesh Kumar Sharma and his team for organising such workshops of global importance and thanked all the International Speakers for sparing their time. He said, “Shoolini University is the dream of academicians to provide high-impact, high-quality university education to lesser privileged students of Himachal and India through research, innovative learning and community service.”
Pro Chancellor Mr Vishal Anand, in his inaugural speech, said research was the backbone of any university, institute, and country, and Shoolini University had made high strides in publishing quality research papers and filed more than 450 patents as well.
Prof Sun Kon Lee from Inha University, South Korea talked about electric energy harvesting from stray magnetic field using cantilever piezoelectric harvester and 3D printing. Prof Mesfin Kebede form CSIR South Africa and Prof Sheng Hsiung Chang from Chung Yuan University, Taiwan, were the speakers on the second day, and they delivered insightful and knowledgeable talk on Lithium Ion Batteries and Perovskite Solar Cells.
Prof Genene Tessema Mola from the University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, shared his views on ‘Plasmon Induced Performance of Thin Film Organic Solar Cells’ and Prof Batoo talked about various characterisation techniques.
Delivering the concluding remarks, Shoolini University Vice Chancellor Prof Atul Khosla talked about his experiences with materials science during his IIT Kanpur days. Dr Pooja Dhiman thanked all the eminent speakers and delegates for attending the workshop.
