Graphene is an atomically-thin two-dimensional (2D) carbon materialwith highly-unusual and previously unknown properties. These propertiescan only be utilized commercially when the graphene for device integrationis sufficiently free from defects. However, these features can only beachieved at...

Speaker: Dr Swastik Bhattacharya, IISER Trivandrum

It has been known for a long time that the event horizon of a stationary black hole in Einstein's theory behaves like a viscous fluid. Taking the Horizon-fluid as a real physical construct, here we show how to construct a Theory of Fluctuations for it. Using a Fluctuation-Dissipation analysis,...

NISER OSA student chapter welcomes you. We have got formal recognition from Optical Society of America (OSA) in June 2016. To celebrate 100 years of OSA we are organizing a one-day conference on optics and photonics technology (COPT-2016) on 25th November 2016 at National Institute of Science...

Venue: SPS Seminar Room
Speaker: Dr Duccio Abbaneo, CERN

In the years 2024-2025 The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) in Geneva will undergo a major upgrade, which will enable operation with much higher intensity beams, thus increasing the potential for new discovery. Particle detectors operating on the...

Venue: SPS Seminar Room
Speaker: Dr Sachin Jain, Cornell University

Structure of quantum field theory is quite rich. It has remarkable properties such as Super-Symmetry, duality etc. In this talk, I'll discuss for Chern-Simons matter theories in three dimension, exploiting above mentioned two properties on can  in principle compute arbitrary (m to n) and all...

Venue: LH-5, NISER, Jatni
Speaker: Prof. Mandar Deshmukh, Professor, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR)

Graphene’s electronic properties are exciting and have been studied extensively. In addition, the mechanical properties are of interest for scientific and technological reasons. I will describe our efforts in my lab...

Venue: NISER, Jatni, LH5
Speaker: Prof. R.Srianand, Professor, Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics

Absorption lines seen in the spectra of high-z QSOs allow one to probe the cosmology, galaxy formation and its evolution. In particular absorption lines can be used to study the evolution of different forms of matter, chemical enrichment and ionizing radiation as a function of cosmic time. In...

Date/Time: Monday, October 24, 2016 - 15:30
Venue: SPS Seminar Room
Speaker: Dr. Sayantan Majumdar, University of Chicago

Unlike dry granular materials, a dense granular suspension like  cornstarch in water can strongly resist extensional flows. At low  extension rates, such a suspension behaves like a viscous fluid, but rapid extension results in a response where stresses far exceed  the predictions of lubrication...
