Dr. Vasudeva Rao Aravind, assistant professor, Clarion University Department of Physics, was invited to present two invited talks at University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, Dehradun, India.
Aravind presented “Nanoscale Characterization in Alternative Energy Technologies” at the First International Seminar on Nanotechnology in Conventional Energy: A Global Status and Pathway, held at UPES campus in Dehradun. This seminar was sponsored by the giant oil and renewable energy companies, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation and Indian Oil Corporation Limited, and the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research in collaboration with UPES. Aravind presented the latest results on enhanced energy conversion efficiency in oil, including research performed at Clarion University.
“It was a very well attended seminar, attended by eminent scientists from USA, India and South Korea,” Aravind said. “This seminar was an excellent opportunity to meet with the scientists and engineers from oil industry, and to understand what our research means from the application point of view.”
Aravind also presented “Nanoscale Probing of Structure and Dynamics of Ferroelectric Domain Walls” at the Physics Department Colloquium on the UPES campus. This talk was centered on using nonlinear optics to study static properties and dynamics of ferroelectric domain walls.
“It was great to interact with faculty who do similar research and to exchange ideas,” Aravind said.
Clarion University is the high-achieving, nationally recognized, comprehensive university that delivers a personal and challenging academic experience.
