One Day Workshop On Integrated Photonics

In today’s data-hungry world, with the ever-increasing demand for reducing the size, weight, and power consumption, the research community is rapidly shifting its focus towards Integrated Photonics. Integrated Photonics (IP) uses light as a carrier which enjoys various advantages as compared to its electronic counterpart. It finds applications in a wide variety of areas including telecommunications such as 5G networks, biosensors for speeding up medical diagnosis, and in automotive where it is used in LIDAR. IP comprises the integration of multiple photonic functions on a Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) fabricated using automated wafer-scale generic integration technology over silicon, silica, or Indium Phosphide (InP) substrates. The motive of this workshop is to enlighten about integrated photonics and its applications in different areas. The workshop also demonstrates the tools used in designing Photonic Integrated Circuits

International Day Of Light

On 16th May 2022 IEEE Photonics Society held an expert talk on ‘Programmable Photonics’ as part of the international day of light celebration.

Abstract : The popularity of machine learning methods, such as neural networks, is rapidly expanding in nearly all areas of science. The interest in these tools also coincides with a growing influx of big data and the need for high efficiency in solving prediction problems. However, there is also some hesitancy in adopting the use of neural networks due to concerns about their reliability, reproducibility, and interpretability.
In climate science, we often consider signal-to-noise problems to help disentangle human- caused climate change from natural variability. These applications typically involve complicated relationships between different feedbacks at play in the ocean, cryosphere, land, and
atmosphere. Recent work has shown that neural networks can be a promising tool for solving these types of statistical problems when combined with explainability techniques developed by the fields of computer science and image processing. Interestingly, these methods have revealed that neural networks often leverage regional patterns of climate change in order to make their predictions. In this webinar, I will share examples from climate science that use a few of these visualization methods to peer into the “black box” of neural networks, which help us to better understand their decision-making process while also learning new science. The same machine learning visualization methods can be easily adapted for a wide variety of applications and other scientific fields of study.

Bio: Dr. Zachary Labe is a postdoc at NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University. His current research interests explore the intersection of climate variability, extreme events, decadal prediction, and explainable machine learning methods. In addition to academic research, he is very passionate about improving science communication, accessibility, and outreach through engaging climate change visualizations.

 IEEE GRSS IITI webinar on ‘Remote Sensing of Ionospheric perturbations using GNSS”

Dear Students,

Reserve your dates for a keynote webinar on “Remote Sensing of Ionospheric Perturbations Induced by Earthquakes and Tsunamis Using GNSS” by Dr.Sithartha Muthu Vijayan, senior scientist,CSIR Fourth Paradigm Institute. This talk covers the fundamentals and current status of ionospheric seismology including ionosphere-based tsunami early warning, methods for detecting ionospheric perturbations using GNSS, emerging opportunities, and challenges ahead. 

Date/Time:16:00-17:00 IST – Apr 8,2022 (Friday)

Kindly Register here  to attend the session.

The lecture is jointly organized by IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing (GRSS) chapter IITI and IEEE Student branch,IIT Indore

The details of this Webinar are below :

Title: Remote Sensing of Ionospheric Perturbations Induced by Earthquakes and Tsunamis Using GNSS

Speaker: Dr.Sithartha Muthu Vijayan, senior scientist,CSIR Fourth Paradigm Institute.


It is well-known that acoustic and gravity waves generated by earthquakes and tsunamis grow in amplitude during their vertical propagation in the atmosphere and perturb the ionospheric plasma. However, there were limitations in observing such perturbations using conventional observational techniques. The advent of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) changed the scenario. The number of dual-frequency GNSS receivers established – both in space and ground – for various scientific and navigational purposes, and the massive earthquakes and tsunamis that shook the Earth in the last two decades provided an unprecedented opportunity to detect and study the coseismic and tsunamigenic ionospheric perturbations. Eventually, these studies opened up a new area of research called ionospheric seismology. Being in its infancy, ionospheric seismology demands improvements in both theoretical as well as observational research to obtain maturity. Upon its maturity, ionospheric seismology will make the remote sensing of earthquakes and other planetary quakes possible in addition to filling the crucial gaps in conventional seismology. Further, this multidisciplinary research field is opening up many research opportunities in the domains of ionospheric physics, geodesy, and geophysics. This talk covers the fundamentals and current status of ionospheric seismology including ionosphere-based tsunami early warning, methods for detecting ionospheric perturbations using GNSS, emerging opportunities, and challenges ahead.

#4th webinar


Looking at the Sun in the Near-UV range with the Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope onboard Aditya-L1 mission


Dr.Avyarthana Ghosh (Postdoc, IUCAA Pune)



The Solar Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (SUIT) on-board Aditya-L1 spacecraft (India’s first space mission dedicated solely to solar observations) is an indigenous effort to observe the Sun in Near-Ultraviolet range of the solar electromagnetic spectrum. It is unique in the way that it can image the Sun 24×7 from the Sun-Earth Lagrangian 1 point with a high spatial resolution, cadence and contrast, in addition to good straylight mitigation. There is a suite of 11 science filters, out of which 8 are with comparatively narrow Full-Width-Half-Maxima and remaining 3 are broadband. In total, these 11 science filters probe the dynamics and coupling of mass and energy in different layers of the lower solar atmosphere as well as its impact on space-terrestrial climate. In my talk, I shall be giving a brief overview of the science objectives, the photometric designing of SUIT along with its performance modelling and straylight estimates. Finally, I shall be talking about the operational planning and the current status of the instrument which is being tested at subsystems- level and assembled.


##3rd webinar


Fiber-optic Biosensors for Water Quality Assessment


Dr. Nirmal Punjabi

Project Research Scientist, NCETIS.
Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India.


Testing of water is an integral component for maintaining water quality and providing drinking water to everyone. Due to the limited accessibility of sophisticated instruments
for organic and inorganic analysis, proper testing is not accessible for everyone. Fiber optic sensors, due to their versatility, are potential solutions for water quality assessment that can be deployed at the broadest scale, thereby making them accessible at remote locations. In this talk, I will be providing an overview of the research in the development of guided-wave absorbance-based fiber-optic sensors and their application for the detection of contaminants in drinking water.
