Visit to Delhi University Pathways Noida
On March 1st, 2019, we visited the department of Physics and Astro Physics at Delhi University to meet Dr Brajesh Chand Choudhary, a senior professor at D.U and an eminent name in the field of high energy particle Physics.
We visited the advanced research labs facilitating research in the field of High energy Particle Physics specially in the field of particle detection, like GEM lab- Gas Electron Multiplier lab, FAB lab that research and fabricate intricate electronic systems used in particle detection at CERN. Electronic Material and Devices Laboratory [EMDL] this lab research on Nano structures, Energy harvesting and Sources, Nonlinear Optics and Photonics, Sensors and Detectors, Thin Film growth techniques and ceramics. It was fascinating to learn how science and technology are being used in detecting Cosmic Muons. We were also explained how it can be taken forward and can be used to detect particles that are virtually massless and chargeless (neutrinos).
After completing our visit to the labs, we had a question answer session with Prof. Brajesh Choudhary, Prof. Maxwell Chertok, a visiting faculty from University of California Davis (USA) and the PhD students researching in the field of particle Physics. This session started with a short presentation by Prof. Maxwell Chertok followed by the question answer session conducted by Prof Choudhary, Prof. Chertok and PhD students. This discussion gave us an opportunity to evaluate the scope, challenges and future of research in the field of high energy particle Physics. This discussion also highlighted how scientists, governments and students from different parts of the world collaborate and contribute in the scientific research and development in establishment like CERN, Switzerland and Fermi Lab (USA).
It was a great opportunity and exposure for all of us to see High energy physics in action. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the labs and discussion session thereafter and my only regret was that we could have spent more time on campus. We are looking forward to such visits in future as well.
