Nuclear Physics Discussion Group @ CBS

This is a discussion group comprising faculty, postdocs and students primarily from CBS, with participation from other researchers based in Mumbai.

The goals of this group are:
  • Develop a discourse on current research developments regarding the the atomic nucleus
  • Stimulate interest and convey the excitement about the field to students
  • Provide a forum for improving interaction between experimental and theoretical physicists
  • Converge upon ideas and means to address interesting physics problems using existing and upcoming facilities in India
The discussions are scheduled once a month at CBS, usually on the first Wednesday of the month, at 3.00 pm. Other days may be agreed upon based on mutual convenience.

The group presently includes the following members from CBS:
Faculty: S.C. Phatak, S.K. Tandel, A. Bhagwat, M. Hemalatha
Visiting Scientists and Research Associates: N. Upadhyay, D. Negi
Graduate Students: S.G. Wahid, N. Maladkar, P. Roy, D. Kumar
Other group members: B.K. Jain, H.C. Pradhan
Interested Masters' students from CBS are also involved and more are welcome.

Some researchers and visiting faculty from BARC and TIFR also participate in the discussions.
