National Conference on Materials and Devices -2020 at TMU

Day-1 of the National Conference on Materials and Devices-2020 (NCMD-2020) at the Teerthanker Mahaveer University, Moradabad, began with a brief inauguration ceremony and humble expression of views through the Chief Guest and the Guest of Honor.

The conference was segregated in the sessions. Day one consisted of sessions with Dr. K. Pandey from the University of Allahabad and Dr. Nitin Jadhav from Savitribai Phule University, Pune, for session one & two. Many other keynote speakers added their wisdom to the conference too.

Prof. S A Hashmi, the keynote speaker from the University of Delhi, talked about Eco-friendly Carbon Electrode for solid-state supercapacitors. The synthesis of a stable carbon-based supercapacitor is purely eco-friendly; generally, active carbon-based supercapacitors are costly, whereas solid carbon is more cost-effective and eco-friendly.

Plenary speaker, Prof. Bhaskar Bhattacharya from BHU Varanasi, described the polymer electrolyte for quantum dot-based solar cells with better efficiency, non-hazardous and eco-friendly.

Other invited speakers have shared their views on different materials like Ionic liquid, which is an ionic conducting liquid used for increasing the conducting of the insulating synthesized polymers to increase its conductivity in a solid form.

Dr. R J Deokate from Savirtibai Phule University, Pune, presented his work explaining the spray pyrolysis technique to prepare the advanced nanomaterials. Prof. D K Rai, from JIIT, Noida, has demonstrated spectroscopic analysis of polymer electrolyte and kinematics of ion transport mechanism to increase polymeric materials' conductivity.

Learning about all these enlightening topics, the students deepened their knowledge. Teerthanker Mahaveer University aims to shape the students to be industry-ready. Such conferences give students insight into industry knowledge and requirements. TMU's and FOE& CCSIT have become recognized as good placement institutes due to these efforts.

On the first day, seventeen research students have participated in oral presentations, and ten have presented their papers at the conference. Out of the ten students, two belonged to the Department of Physics of TMU, Moradabad.

DAY-2 Report on NCMD-2020

The second day of the conference brought another round of enlightening sessions with keynote speakers like Prof. Neelam Srivastava; Dr. Amit Saxena from Shri Vaishnav Institute of Science, SVVV, Indore, and Dr. Asim Ahmad, etc.

Prof. Neelam Srivastava explained the transport mechanism of charge carriers with a certain formula called the power law;
Plenary speaker Prof. U. P. Singh from KIIT, Bhubneshwar, talked about the thin-film solar cell technology, its present status, and future materials to meet all humankind's need for energy.
Dr. Rajeev Sehrawat from MM University, Mullana, Ambala presented his work explaining the electrode formation technique to prepare the advanced noncorrosive materials for fuel cells.
Prof. N.B. From Sharda University, Greater Noida, Singh demonstrated nanomaterials' general features properties and their applications.

So, twenty-three research students participated in the oral presentation on day two, and thirteen presented their papers at the conference. The conference became an engaging and intellectual platform for the students. Workshops, conferences, and seminars are an essential part of Teerthanker Mahaveer University's curriculum, making it the best college for engineering students.

Teerthanker Mahaveer University has cracked the success mantra to get their students' placement, academics, and personality at their best through such national and international conferences.
