Abstract:
It is an interesting and remarkable fact that every Nobel-prize winning
piece of work in Experimental Physics was carried out on apparatus
designed and developed by the physicist in question, be it Rutherford,
Raman, Mossbauer or Binnig. I will start by taking the audience through a
fascinating journey which saw my team developing Scanning Probe
Microscopes, Physical Properties Measurement Systems and hi-end CVDsall
the way out to internationally competitive standards. I will then describe
how we have gone about enhancing the base so developed for research in
material science, condensed matter physics and nano-technology, with
packages for scientific computation, many designed and developed (like our
instruments) essentially from scratch. By the end of the talk, I hope to
have convinced the audience that the complete & seamless, indigenous
integration of theory, computation, experiment and instrumentation, which
we are beginning to achieve at QuazarTech holds out the promise (not only for us
but for centers  all over India) of tackling some really interesting
physics problems, a few of which I will describe.
