National Conference on “Recent Advancements in Materials science And Nanotechnology (RAMAN)-2020”

Nanotechnology is one of the emerging technologies of the world that approaches many frontiers of human lives nowadays. There is ample scope of improvement in the current techniques and technologies of Nanotechnology. The materials science nanoscale is going to revolutionise the current electronics, machines, and their designs, optical and mechanical sensors, chemical and their reactions etc. Considering the importance of this technology, during the Silver Jubilee Year of Institute of Technology, the National Conference on ‘Recent Advancements in Materials science And Nanotechnology (RAMAN)-2020 was organised Online via Google Meet by the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Nirma University, Ahmedabad during July 30- August 01, 2020. Organisers received support from various national agencies such as the GUJCOST, and DRDO for its execution. Dr Suddhasatwa Basu (Director, IMMT (Bhubaneswar) was the Chief Guest of the event. Approximately 145 abstracts of research were received out of which with after 40% rejection ratio, 88 abstracts were selected for the presentations. The invited talks were delivered by the prominent academicians and scientists abroad and India.
