Research Scholars' Day

5th March '17

Venue: Senate Hall, Main Building, IIT Patna

Creating new knowledge.

Research Scholars’ Day (popularly known as RSD) is an annual event celebrated by the research scholars of IIT Patna. In this programme, the students showcase their research works through poster presentations and three-minute research talks before the attendees and experts for recognition, feedback, collaboration etc.

Invited Speakers

Professor Pradipta Banerji

    Professor Pradipta Banerji,​the former Director of Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee (October 2011 – October 2016),is the Professor of Structural Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay since 1988. He graduated with a B.Tech. Degree from IIT Delhi in 1981, securing the Director’s Silver Medal as the top-ranked graduating student in Civil Engineering. He has been the recipient of the exclusive National Science Talent Scholarship in India. He then completed an M.S. and a Ph.D. in Structural Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, USA, with a specialization in Earthquake Engineering. During this period at Berkeley, he was awarded the UC Regents’ Fellowship twice, the prestigious Popert Research Fellowship, and a Distinguished Teaching Award.

Dr. Deepak B. Phatak

    Earthquake Vibration Control; Damage Detection In Structures; Guided Wave Propagation And Scattering In Structures; Condition/health Monitoring Of Bridge Structures

Title: How to do relavent research for real world problems

Title: Harnessing Quantum Principles for Technology

  Abstract : The present day technology primarily rely on Newton's laws,thermodynamics and Maxwell's equations. They govern the world starting fromcommunication to computation. The ever increasing need to reduce the sizeof the chips governed by Moore's law led to the quantum world, whose powerfor parallel processing, quantum simulations and information storage havebeen advocated by the legendary Feynman. Already understood since the earlypart of the 20th century, quantum mechanics led to the paradoxes likeSchrodinger's cat and EPR paradox, to name a few. Interestingly, engineersof the late 20th century used these paradoxes to demonstrate'Teleportation', hither to seen only on 'Star Trek'. Quantum mechanicsfound profound utility in mundane applications like searching for a needlein haystack and factorizing a large number. The Grover's search and Shor'sfactorization algorithms brought a revolution to the field of quantumcomputation and use of quantum principles to carry out specified tasks.Soon peculiarity of the quantum mechanics showed its face in 'no-cloning','no erasing' of unknown quantum states or quantum information. Quantummeasurement leading to the collapse of states and quantum correlationcoming through entanglement soon found device applications in quantum keydistribution revealing the presence of an eavesdropper and hence providingsecurity in quantum communication. Intrinsic quantum correlations arecurrently active area of research leading to monogamous and polygamousrelationships between multiple particles in the quantum world. There areenough questions and challenges for scientists, engineers, andmathematician to be tackled for actualizing devices based on quantumprinciples.

Dr. Maya Shanker Pandey
