Department of Physics, Manav Rachna University organized a workshop

02 Sep 2022


Resource Person:

  • Prof. Ajoy Ghatak, Former Professor, Department of Physics, IIT Delhi
  • Prof. Anirban Pathak, Professor and HoD, Department of Physics and Materials Science and Engineering, Jaypee Institute of Information Technology
  • Dr. Bhaskar Kanseri, Associate Professor, Department of Physics, IIT Delhi

The workshop was co-sponsored by National Academy of Sciences India (NASI-Delhi chapter) and Manav Rachna University.

The conveners of the workshop, Dr. Deepti and Dr. Anshuman, begins the session with welcoming address which was followed by the traditional lamp lightning ceremony by Honourable Vice chancellor Prof. Dr. I. K Bhatt, the guests of honors Prof. Ajoy Ghatak, Prof. Anirban Pathak and Dr. Bhaskar Kanseri with all the other senior dignitaries PVC Prof. D. S. Sengar, Registrar Dr. Kameshwar Singh, Dean Academics Prof (Dr.) Sangeeta Banga, Dean school of applied sciences Prof (Dr.) Pradeep Varshney, HOD Prof. (Dr.) D. K. Sharma. Next, Shreya offered saraswati vandana to seek the blessings of Maa Saraswati the “Goddess of Knowledge”. Further our Honourable Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dr. I. K. Bhatt welcomed all the eminent speakers and declared the workshop open by highlighting the present and future aspects of Quantum Mechanics and its applications in real life.

Further, a brief introduction about National Academy of Sciences (NASI) -India and its Delhi Chapter was given by Dr. Ananna. Thereafter, the technical session started with the discussion about the evolution of various theories of light which eventually led to quantum theory by Prof. Ajoy Ghatak. Next speaker of the session Prof. Anirban Pathak discussed the basic ideas of quantum computing and quantum communication with specific focus on quantum cryptography emphasizing upon how principles of quantum mechanics help us in computing and secure communication, where we stand now and what are the challenges we need to solve in the near future. Further he focussed on what kind of experiments related to quantum computing and communication can be performed in undergraduate and postgraduate laboratories. Last speaker of the session Dr. Bhaskar Kanseri throws light on quantum optics which is a framework to test fundamental aspects of quantum mechanics such as coherence, entanglement, and non-classical properties of light which led to the development of quantum technologies which aim to harness quantum principles for promising applications in computing and communication. The session introduces the quantum properties of light which do not have classical counterparts. Moreover, some of the experimental approaches were discussed to prepare, control, and measure such properties for developing photonic quantum communication technologies.

At last, conveners express the vote of thanks to all the eminent speakers by presenting them mementos as a token of gratitude for gracing the workshop, invigorating the spirits of all the participants and making everyone feel to keep on learning and thinking about different aspects of science. Further, the contribution of all the participants from various universities was acknowledged by the conveners to make the workshop worthwhile. Finally, the workshop ends with the national anthem.
