Virtual Talk on ‘Raman Effect: Fundamentals and its Fascinating Applications’

 

Baridua, 9th Mile, Meghalaya, 23rd July 2021: The Department of Physics, University of Science and Technology Meghalaya has organized a virtual talk on ‘Raman Effect: Fundamentals and its Fascinating Applications’. The talk was organized on the Zoom platform. It began with a welcome address by Dr. Sanchita Roy, HoD, Department of Physics. She briefly introduced Raman spectroscopy and scattering. This was followed by a speech from Prof. G.D. Sharma, honorable vice-chancellor of USTM. He briefed about the importance of Raman spectroscopy and its wide applications. It was followed by a speech from Dr. R.K. Sharma, principal advisor, USTM.

The invited speaker of the talk, Dr. Surajit Saha from the Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Bhopal presented his talk on the topic ‘Raman Effect: Fundamentals and its Fascinating Applications’. He began the talk with basic physics of light-matter interactions and the presence these phenomena are in real-life.He described how Sir C.V. Raman was motivated from examples of light-matter interactions in natureand performed a groundbreaking work in his laboratory with simple instruments and reported about scattering of light by different materials. Also, how Sir C.V. Raman was able to convince the scientific community back then about his new scattering experiment was described by the speaker.Keeping in mind the presence of large number of students from undergraduate and postgraduate levels, the basic sciences of Raman scattering phenomenon was described by the speaker. He also explained many interesting, yet unknown applications of Raman scattering effect in various fields such as material identification, forensics, food and beverage industries, pharmaceuticals, biomedical field, optoelectronics etc. The speaker also highlighted related research activities being carried out in his laboratory at IISER Bhopal. He also addressed questions from the attendees of the talk.

The talk was attended by participants from different institutes and universities across the nation. It was moderated by Dr. Mayuri Devee and the vote of thanks was offered by Dr. Nitu Borgohain of the Department of Physics.
