About the Institution

St. Joseph?s is an autonomous college of the Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirappalli, located in the central part of Tamil Nadu, South India. It was established in 1844 by the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits). The moto of the college is ?For the Good and the True?. The college celebrated its centenary in 1944, sesqui-centenary in 1995 and Dodransbicentenary in 2019. The college was recognised by UGC as a College with Potential for Excellence (CPE) in 2004 and 2014, NAAC has reaccredited the college at the highest A++ Grade (Cycle-IV) in 2019 and is ranked as 27th position in NIRF of 6th edition (2021) under college category. St. Joseph?s is the only college in Tamil Nadu that has been awarded with Special Heritage Status by UGC. The college trains young men and women of quality to be leaders in all walks of life so that they serve the people of the Nation in truth justice and love. Accordingly, this college strives to be an agent of social change, by incorporating the scientific and technological growth in its UG, PG and Research (M.Phil/Ph.D) programmes.

About the Department

This century-old Department of Physics started B.A. Physics (1881), B.Sc (Hons.) Physics (1911), B.Sc (1930), M.Sc Physics (1961), Ph.D. (1971) and M.Phil (1977). Other than its own evolution, it had given birth to two departments, Computer science (1983) and Electronics (1993) in the college. To cater the needs of the students, BSc and MSc (Physics) programmes in Self-financing section (shift II) were established in 1982 and in 2004 respectively. Presently there are 31 faculties and 9 non teaching staff in the department. The department is constantly developing with the continuous support of management and the funding of UGC, DST-FIST, DST-SERB, DRDO and CSIR. The department had established national and international collaboration in many fields of research in recent years and organises symposia and conferences periodically at all levels to ignite the students with scientific spirit. Over a period of 140 years, the alumni of the department have served and are still serving the nation in various capacities. Notable among them are Bharat Ratna, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, the former President of India and Dr G N Ramachandran, an Indian Physicist who was known for his work, "The Ramachandran Plot" for understanding peptide structure, nominated for Nobel prize (Doctoral student of Nobel laureate Sir C. V. Raman).

Objectives of the Conference

Material Science is a multi-disciplinary area of research in which materials structure, micro/macroscopic properties and applications of the materials can be investigated. In addition to that, it comprises the design and process of a novel materials for practical applications. In the recent years, significant research is focused on this area due to the tremendous application in electronics, optoelectronics, energy conversion, telecommunication etc.

  • This conference highlights the synthesis, characterization and applications of different types of materials.

  • To create scientific and research temper among the researchers and students

  • To create a platform for interaction with the experts in this field

  • To provide an opportunity to researchers for sharing their knowledge and expertise with other researchers.

  • To get exposure to the latest research and development in materials science.
