  • Budget: Rs. 40 lakhs
  • Duration: 3 years
  • Project Title: Application Specific System level Validation and Verification platform for Analog/Mixed Signal/RF Chips
  • PI: Prof. Ajit Kumar Panda
  • Scheme: Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) Program

  • Project Title: Deformed shell model study of heavy N~Z nuclei and dark matter detectio
  • PI: Prof. Rankanidhi Sahu
  • Scheme: Core Research Grant. (PAC Physical Sciences)
  • Budget: Rs. 6 lakhs
  • Duration: 3 years
  • Summary: With N=Z, both protons (p) and neutrons (n) occupy same set of sp orbits and therefore isospin (T) degree of freedom is important for these nuclei. More importantly, with N=Z, we have a new super fluidity with proton-neutron (pn) pairs. Very little is known about the special structures generated by pn-pairs. In particular, it is possible to have T=0 pairs in addition to T=1 pairs. These two types of pairing modes are expected to show their presence more clearly in N=Z odd-odd nuclei. A first application is made to 66 As and the results are published in Journal of Physics G 44 (2017) 125107 in collaboration with Prof. V.K.B. Kota and Prof. P.C. Srivastva. There are overwhelming evidences for the existence of dark matter in the universe. However, it has not yet been observed in earth-bound experiments nor created at particle colliders. The event detection rates for the Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMP) (a dark matter candidate) are calculated with 73 Ge as the detector. This work has been published in Modern Physics Letters A 32 (2017) 1750210 in collaboration with Prof. V.K.B. Kota. The work is in progress.
  • Project Title: Integrated low cost water sensors for river water monitoring and decision- making
  • PI: Prof. Ajit Kumar Panda
  • Budget: Rs. 98 lakhs
  • Duration: 3 years
  • Summary: NIST and IIT Delhi in collaboration with Stanford University and New Jersey Institute of Technology.

  • Project Title: Development Of Surface Passivated Quantum Dot Sensitized Frontier Technology Based Semiconductor. Photo Electrode For H2 Generation By Artificial Photosynthesis
  • PI: Dr. Shrabani Mahata
  • Budget: Rs. 10.5 Lakhs
  • Duration: 3 years
  • Summary: Solar driven water splitting, a process that impersonates natural photosynthesis, offers a doable solution to achieve the challenge of modern society’s increasing energy demand. Hydrogen obtained from solar water-splitting has the potential to be a clean, sustainable and abundant energy source. Motivated by natural photosynthesis, artificial solar water-splitting devices are now on high demand. Latest molecular and/or nanostructure design developments have directed to advances in our understanding of light-induced charge separation and subsequent catalytic water oxidation and reduction reactions. Some of the recent advances towards developing artificial photosynthetic devices, along with their resemblance to biological photosynthesis, include technologies that focus on the development of visible-light active hetero-nanostructures and require an understanding of the underlying interfacial carrier dynamics. Nano-scale materials, with their unique capability to bridge the nanoscopic and macroscopic worlds, have already been established as promising materials towards different energy conversion. One budding and exciting direction is the development of surface passivated quantum dot Sensitized frontier technology based semiconducting photoelectrode for H2 generation by artificial photosynthesis. Quantum-dot-based photo electrodes are powerful alternatives to implement this technology. Though huge work is going on at the national and international level but cautioning that this is far from being comprehensive. It is essential to do extensive research to meet al challenges of existing technologies. This project focuses specifically on smart engineering of surface passivated quantum dot sensitized semiconducting materials to achieve very high photocatalytic efficiency for H2 generation based on artificial photosynthesis.
  • Project Title: Development of a hardware friendly machine learning system for embedded applications.
  • PI: Ms. Arunima Sambhuta Pattanayak
  • Budget: Rs. 17.5 Lakhs
  • Duration: 3 years
  • Summary: Machine Learning (ML) is the study of making machines acquires new knowledge, new skills, and reorganize existing knowledge. A learning machinehas the ability to learn automatically from experience andrefine and improve its knowledge base. Different authors have observed and mentioned, “Things learn when they change their behavior in a way that makes them perform better in the future”. In other words, ML Technique is a branch of computer science, which can be defined as a set of methods that can automatically detect patterns in data and then use the uncovered patterns to predict future data, or to perform other kinds of decision making under uncertainty.

    In last few years, there is a substantial growth in applications in the field of Wireless Sensor Network, Internet of Things and Wearable Gadgets. All these applications use advance embedded field devices which generates huge amount of data and require systems which can run ML algorithms online to perform regression or classification on live data for decision making.

    To suffice above requirement, the future generation intelligent embedded devices need to be capable of running complex ML algorithms online on live data in real time. A recent study says, 80% of the embedded application in the field of WSN, Smart-Grid, IoTs and wearables are designed around low cost microcontrollers like 8051, AVR, ARM. So classical ML algorithms like ANN and SVM, which are designed to run on PCs, should be modified and redesigned to run efficiently on low cost embedded system with restrictions on processing capability and memory. In true sense all these algorithms should be redesigned to make them hardware friendly.
  • Project Title: Low dissipative positivity preserving grid-free solver for Euler equation
  • PI: Dr. Souren Misra
  • Scheme: Extra Mural Research Funding (Individual Centric)
  • Budget: Rs. 11.05 Lakhs
  • Duration: 2 years
  • Summary: In solving the Euler equations with numeric’s, density and internal energy should remain positive under a Courant-Friedrichs-Lewy (CFL) like condition. This property is called positivity-preserving property. Positivity property closely related to the robustness of the scheme. In the present work, Minimum dissipation required to retain the positivity criterion for a central solver is going to be developed. The same diffusion coefficient is used to develop a grid-free solver for Euler equations. With the help of this criterion, we can identify any of the numerical method developed for the Hyperbolic conservation laws (Euler equation) are satisfying the positive criterion or not. A grid-free solver is going to be developed to test the accuracy and robustness of the numerical solver with the help of the receding flow problem. The first and second order solutions are going to be presented for the low dissipative positivity preserving scheme with help of test cases in 1-D and 2-D.
