Department of Physics, Panjab University, Chandigarh, India

One-day seminar programme on Analytical Techniques in Nuclear Science
(27 January 2012)

(Sponsored by CAS in Physics)

The Department is organising a one-day seminar programme on Analytical Techniques in Nuclear Science on 27 January 2012. The Department is a Centre of Advanced Study (CAS) for last two decades. Our faculty members and research scholars are working in several frontier areas in particle physics, nuclear physics, condensed-matter physics, nanotechnology and several interdisciplinary areas. This programime will cover some of the frontier areas of research in nuclear science. We expect around 4-5 speakers from various institutions and universities in India and around fifty participants from the Department and nearby colleges and universities. Speakers include:

  • Prof. N.L. Singh (Baroda)
  • Prof. B.P. Singh (Aligarh)
