Department of Electrical Engineering organizing
Six Day Workshop on:

April, 13th to 18th, 2020 
Supported by TEQIP-III (NPIU, MHRD, Government of India)

About the Workshop:

Interest in the field of Nanoscience and technology has led to a paradigm shift in semiconductor electronics and more so because of the known fact that silicon-based semiconducting metal oxide technologies will reach its scaling limit in the near future. Nanomaterials exhibit outstanding electronic, mechanical and chemical properties which makes them suitable candidates for a wide variety of electronic applications. Hence, a parallel field of research has gained momentum in the past few decades that deals with study of mechanical, electronic and transport properties of nanomaterials and their application in nanoelectronic devices including nano sensors which can be easily integrated with modern electronic fabrication technologies for various applications in real life especially in consumer electronics, healthcare, security etc. Keeping such requirements in mind, this workshop intends to provide an insight into the–(i) nanomaterials: their synthesis, properties including electronic, mechanical, transport, nano sensors, detection techniques with several practical applications including sensors and healthcare.-(ii)Nano mechanics: MD simulations, Crystal plasticity and homogenization theory along with the variatinal principles and computational methods.
