NATIONAL SEMINAR ON RECENT TRENDS IN PHYSICS-2010
Chief guest Dr. Rajpal S. Hande, Director, Board of College & University Development, Inaugurated the National Seminar on "Recent Trends in Physics-2010" conducted by the Physics Department of ICLESí Motilal Jhunjhunwala College of Arts, Science & Commerce in collaboration with Maharashtra Academy of Science (Mumbai Chapter). A gathering about 150 Physicists from Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh & Nothern Maharashtra attended the two days Notional Seminar on 10th & 11th Dec.2010.
Dr.R.S. Hande said that the topic of the seminar was very much relevant to the academia in general & Physics students in particular. He hoped that the deliberations of the seminar will be useful to all & sensitized faculty & students in recent trends in Physics. He also wished that these efforts would go a long way in serving the common man & students at large.
Prof .Vijay A. Singh, a distinguished Scientist from Homibaba Center for Science Education, Mumbai, delivered the key note address, his address was motivating incite full an thought provoking the gathering was spell bound for his entire lecture. He spoke in very lucid language on nano technology from its origin to the current state in such way that even non-physics students and audience could understand.

Dr. A. K. Rajarajan, of B.A.R.C. explained what is super conductivity and its need in current scenario of energy crisis. Particularly, his slides on "Super Conductivity Levitation" & "BCS Theory" aroused interest in the audience.
Dr. B. N. Jagtap, of Atomic and Nuclear Physics Division of BARC explained how lasing action takes place and how it is developed from practical laser developed in laboratory to the new inventions in communication and modern technology.
After these three talks, & presentations by participants research, UG students and teachers were given on various topics from Nano-Science to home made spectro photometh.
Second days session started with talk on misconceptions in physics by Young Scientist. Our Shirish Pathare of Homi Baba Center Science Education Section of TIFR, Mumbai, explained beginning of misconcepts , which canít be removed easily but what efforts can be made to minimize them.
Prof. L. P. Deshmukh, HOD, Electronics, Solapur University, Solapur explained about a thin film technology and its applications.
Prof. C. Bansal Dean, School of Physics, University of Hyderabad explained Nano-electronics. The Story of Electronics from its discovery to what it can do in this era of nano-technology was dealt with.
At the end, UG students presented their papers on various topics. All to0gether about 42 research papers were received for this two days Notional Seminar and about more than 125 participents from various parts of Maharashtara, Hyderabad participated.
All the participants and great personalities like Dr. V.H. Kulkarni, former Head, Dept. of Physics, University of Mumbai, Dr. Pradhan former Head of Dept. of Biotechnology, of BARC, Prof. Satyawati of University of Osmania and others appreciated talks and topics selected for this seminar, which were well received by even UG level students.
