Two Days Workshop on Nanotechnology

A two days workshop was organized by the Department of Electronics and Communication on 30th and 31st of January, 2019 under TEQIP-III. Experienced persons on this field were invited to deliver lectures on their respective nanotechnology domain. Students and faculties from different Institute such as NIELIT Imphal, Manipur Institute of Technology attended the workshop. 

Overview

Nanotechnology is defined as the study and use of structures between 1 nanometer and 100 nanometers in size. The size would take eight hundred 100 nanometer particles side by side to match the width of human hair. The concepts that seeded nanotechnology were first discussed in 1959 by renowned physicist Richard Feynman in his talk There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom, in which he described the possibility of synthesis via direct manipulation of atoms. The term “nano-technology” was first used by Norio Taniguchi in 1974, though it was not widely known. Inspired by Feynman’s concepts, K. Eric Drexler used the term “nanotechnology” in his 1986 book Engines of Creation: The Coming Era of Nanotechnology, which proposed the idea of a nanoscale “assembler” which would be able to build a copy of itself and of other items of arbitrary complexity with atomic control.

Nanotechnology, as defined by size, is naturally very broad, including fields of science as diverse as surface science, organic chemistry, molecular biology, semiconductor physics, energy storage,  microfabrication, molecular engineering, etc. The associated research and applications are equally diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly, from developing new materials with dimensions on the nanoscale to direct control of matter on the atomic scale.

Aim and Objective

To enhance the knowledge of nanotechnology and its importance.

Demonstration of Real Time Electronic Circuits and Components Mini Project

A one-day event for “Demonstration of Real-Time Electronic Circuits and Components Mini Project” was organized by Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Manipur Technical University, Takyelpat under TEQIP III on 29th of January, 2019. A total number of 15 students comprising of 4th semester and 6th semester of ECE department, MTU participated and showcased their mini projects. These projects were very innovative and constructed using simple circuits and components which can be incorporated in our daily life at a very low cost. Students, PhD scholars, faculties and staffs of the University as well as NIT Manipur attended the programme.

Overview

Real-Time systems are becoming pervasive. In a Real-Time System, the correctness of the system behaviour depends not only on the logical results of the computations but also on the physical instant at which these results are produced. Real-Time systems are classified from a number of viewpoints i.e. on factors outside the computer system and factors inside the computer system. Special emphasis is placed on hard and soft real-time systems. A missed deadline in hard real-time systems is catastrophic and in soft real-time systems it can lead to a significant loss. Hence predictability of the system behaviour is the most important concern in these systems. Predictability is often achieved by either static or dynamic scheduling of real-time tasks to meet their deadlines. Static scheduling makes scheduling decisions at compile time and is off-line. Dynamic scheduling is online and uses a schedulable test to determine whether a set of tasks can meet
their deadlines. 

Aim and Objective

The main aim and objective of this demonstration programme are to encourage and to showcase the innovations by the students. Another main aim is to provide a common platform to promote and share the information and knowledge among the participants and the attendees.

Outcome

The programme has educated the participants as well as the attendees and served its main aim and objectives. This type of demonstration programme must be conducted frequently because it helps the young minds to go beyond their limits and challenge themselves to move on further and to be more creative and innovative.
