Dr. Syed Arshad Hussain has been invited to deliver an “Invited Talk”  in the conference on “Organic Devices: The Future Ahead” at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, India during March 3-6, 2014.

One of Thin Films and Nanoscience Research Group member Mr. Pintu Debnath has been selected for DST INSPIRE fellowship for pursuing pre- Ph.D. research work.

Dr. Syed Arshad Hussain will visit Yamaguchi University, Japan during July, 2013  as part of Cooperative Science Program of Yamaguchi University, Japan. Dr. Hussain will also visit Osaka University during his visit. He will deliver lecture & Seminar at both the University and will discuss about the scope of future colleborations.

Mr. Sekhar Chackraborty has joined as Postdoctoral Fellow (research topic: combinatorial sensors) in the Department of Materials Engineering, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel.

Mr. Santanu Chackraborty will visit Yamaguchi University, Japan during July, 2013  as part of Cooperative Science Program of Yamaguchi University, Japan. He will perform some experiments at Prof. Jun Kawamata’s Laboratory, School of Chemistry, Yamaguchi University.
