To mark the discovery of the Raman Effect by renowned Indian physicist Sir C V Raman, the Departments of Physics and Chemistry of Brainware University in collaboration with the Institute’s Innovation cell organized an online seminar on 28th February, 2022 titled “Integrated Approach in Science and Technology for Sustainable Future”. The result of IDEATHON-2022 was announced at this event.
The programme commenced at 10 am with opening remarks and an introduction delivered by Dr. Bishuddhananda Das, HOD of the Physics Department. It was followed by a speech given by Prof. Sankar Gangopadhyay, Vice Chancellor of the university. He acquainted the audience with the circumstances surrounding the discovery of the Raman effect and its wide-ranging applications in technological fields along with the importance of celebrating National Science Day. Prof. Kushal Goswami, Ex. HOD, Department of Physics, Jadavpur University, graced the occasion as chief guest and shared his knowledge about the different practical applications of science and technology. He highlighted the usage of the comparison microscope in the history of forensic science by referring to the famous incident of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre that occurred in Chicago in 1929. This instrument played a pivotal role in revealing the true identity of the assailants responsible for the murder of seven gangsters of Chicago's North Side Gang. Dr. Goswami concluded his talk by highlighting the importance of technology in our daily lives.
