Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Ramanwas an Indian physicist. He employed monochromatic light from a mercury arc lamp which penetrated transparent material and was allowed to fall on a spectrograph to record its spectrum. He detected lines in the spectrum which he later called Raman lines. He presented his theory at a meeting of scientists in Bangalore on 16 March 1928, and won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930. In his memory, research students in Physics department of Savitribai Phule Pune University organise Raman Memorial Conference every year.
RMCThe Raman Memorial Conference, started in the year 1994, is organized annually by the research students of the Department of Physics, Savitribai Phule Pune University. The two day conference is enriched by scientific talks and discussions. There are five invited talks with oral sessions. The invited talks are delivered by eminent scientists from various fields to promote the interaction between the scientists and the students. The open discussion after each oral presentation and at poster session is a key to self assessment and self understanding. Ever since the event started, it has continuously grown in all aspects. The conference aims to encourage young researchers working in physical sciences and related areas to present their work, interact among themselves and with eminent scientists in relevant fields.
From the development of the wheel to batteries, many advance technologies have been adopted and have left an impact on human history. In search of new materials in 1985 a new era started with the discovery of ‘fullerenes’ and research began on smaller materials that have similar properties and that could replace conventional bulk materials. With advances in material science, physics, chemistry, engineering, biology, pharmacy and medicine, lifestyle on earth has drastically changed. The major challenge for researchers is to create new technology and materials that can help shape the world towards a sustainable future.
RMC-2020 is celebrating the 150th anniversary of the periodic table. The Periodic Table of Chemical Elements is one of the most significant achievements in science, capturing the essence not only of chemistry, but also of physics, medicine, earth sciences and biology. 1869 is considered as the year of discovery of the Periodic System, and Dmitri Mendeleev was a major discoverer. By 1860 only 63 elements had been discovered and now total 118 elements can be easily arranged in the table based on the increasing order of their atomic numbers.
The scope of RMC 2020 “Novel Materials for a sustainable future” is to provide a platform for presenting the state-of-the-art knowledge of research on properties, novel synthesis techniques, characterization and applications of materials into electronic, optical, or electrochemical devices, as well as to cover the current challenges related to them.
Participants are allotted a space of 1 meter X 1 meter for their poster presentation.
Participants should send an abstract prepared in LaTeX/Simple Text/MS-Word for their poster presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org in the above prescribed format.
Rules for sending the abstract are as mentioned above.
The prizes are meant for the papers (oral or poster) presented at RMC-2020 and which have got potential for industrialization (or attempts are already made in that direction). The selection will depend upon the decision of a committee (consisting of the representatives of RCMF, the Department of Physics, the Department of Electronics Science and the Department of Instrumentation along with one or two distinguished industry-personnel) based on the abstracts and an interview by the committee (to be arranged at the time of RMC).
All the participants who feel that their paper could be considered for the prizes are requested to send their ‘Detailed Synopsis’ to rmc AT physics DOT unipune DOT ac DOT in at the earliest for the preview of the committee.
