Abstract: 

Nanotechnology, the ability to work at the atomic and molecular level, atom by atom to create materials and structures with new capabilities that will fundamentally change electronics, computers, medicine, biotechnology, and many other industries. The current research in this area is meant to explore the science of nanostructures and new materials, to develop the enabling technology for producing new classes of electronic and biological devices, and to educate the scientists and engineers who will carry this vision forward. This talk is about the prospects of Nanotechnology and the challenges in this emerging field. It is targeted to undergraduate students in Physics, Chemistry, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. The complexity of the topic was minimal with elementary level. It would span discussion on Carbon Nanotubes, Molecular Electronics, Nano-Electromechanical Systems, Ultrathin (1.7-7nm) oxides and nitrided oxides for CMOS applications and Noise Spectroscopy.

Deployable Structures for Space Exploration

[ ]
Registration:

Centre for Solid State Physics, University of the Punjab, Quaid-e-Azam Campus, Lahore
Abstract: 

Deployable structures are a novel and unique type of engineering structures, which can be packaged for transportation and expanded automatically at the time and site of operation, and in some cases, can be retracted for re-use or other purposes. They retain the functionality of conventional structures and in addition, can undergo large geometric transformations. They are light-weight and very compact when folded. A few deployable structures are in very common use in almost every household umbrellas, folding chairs and tents; however proper research into deployable structures started only three decades ago. In this sense, it is relatively young subject in the long history of structural engineering. Space exploration critically depends on deployable structures, which make possible satellite communication and other space systems. The largest payload volume currently available, provided by NASA, reaches a diameter of 4.6 m and a length of 18.3 m; present and future space structures are more demanding in their volume requirements. Obviously, such structures cannot be delivered into space in their service geometry because launching vehicles are limited in their size. The limitation in payload volumes has urged the widespread use of deployable structures and presents considerable challenge and exciting opportunities for imaginative concepts and ideas. Of interest: The Cambridge University Deployable Structures Laboratory.

Solar System Plasma

Registration: 
Open to all.
Date: 
21 May 1999
Time: 
11:00 am
Venue: 
Electrical Engineering Department, University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Lahore
Abstract: 

In this talk we shall discuss the structure and dynamics of the plasma environment of the earth and how it is influenced by the sun and its magnetic field, as has been revealed to us by observations, both remote and in situ, in the past 40 years or so. After presenting a brief overview of the major historical landmarks in the development of space plasma physics, we shall discuss the structure of the solar plasma and then see, by looking at its interaction with the earth�s magnetic field, how the earth�s magnetosphere and ionosphere are. We shall look into the composition of the earth�s plasma layers. We shall also briefly discuss the behaviour of comets when they come close to the sun.

Abstract: 

GALACTIC SPLENDOUR: The milky way is a swarm of energy and brilliance. One finds exuberant astrophotography: nature in its raw - the life and birth and ultimate death of stars; the prized celebrities of the heavens; nebulae and constellations. It also gives us a glimpse into the galactic suburbs, where stars are born.

COSMIC CATASTROPHES: This part concerns epic eruptions of energy on the surfaces of celestial bodies. These havoc events may mean only pinpricks on the gianter organisms such as the Jupiter, but they mean catastrophe from a human scale. Such cataclysms may also have exterminated dinosaurs from the earth 65 million years ago and made way for humans - a catastrophe for one species, a blessing for another.
