The Department of Physics of The IIS University has organized a two days conference on “Recent Trends in Microwave Techniques and Optical Communication” on Wednesday.
While inaugurating the conference, the Vice-Chancellor of the university took pride to extend the warm greetings to the speakers, delegates, research scholars and he also extended hopes that this conference will set high standards of research and training towards microwave techniques and optical communication.
Dr. Gupta very humbly read out the message sent by the Honorable Chief Minister Smt. Vasundhara Raje in which she conveyed her best wishes to the conference. In the message she said that it is never easy for a lay person to appreciate the intricacies of high energy Physics. Nonetheless, microwaves and their utility in the day today applications such as in communication and in home appliances is well known.
Convener of the conference Prof. K.S. Sharma introduced the subject and importance of the conference in today’s context by saying that UNESCO is celebrating 2015 as the international year of light to commemorate anniversaries of notable research on the nature of light and light based technologies. He further said that a scientist from Harvard University Lene Hau has invented a material which will help in quantum computing that will further ensure safely transferring of the data.
The Keynote Speaker on the occasion, Dr. S. B. Chakrabarty, Head of the Microwave Sensors Antenna Division, ISRO has discussed the use and importance of electromagnetic waves in day today life. He also familiarized research scholars with applications of different parts of electromagnetic waves like x-rays, microwave, radio, television etc. Dr. Chakrabarty further suggested that our country should be independent of conducting research in this area and also research in microwave techniques and optical communication should be widespread so that a layman can easily understand it.
