About Professor Yoginder Paul Chugh
“I have enjoyed the challenge to develop the youngest mining engineering department in the USA. Based on lot of unbiased self assessment over the years, I can say with lot of confidence that I have abilities to develop good organizations with strong foundations, and develop effective strategic plans based on input from different constituencies and my own assessment of the business environment. Organizational interests far precede my own interests and I do not give up that easily, and I love to nurture people to be successful. Just like any anyone else I also have my failings and the major one being that I do not have patience for incompetence.” (Chugh as he describes himself)
Research and scholarly work have been an integral part of my professional life, and it is something I truly enjoy. I have always enjoyed breadth in my scholarly work. My major scholarly contributions can be subdivided into four areas: Applied Rock Mechanics and Ground Control, Coal Combustion Byproducts Management, Dust Control in Coal Mining Face Areas & Mining Systems.
Professor Chugh has been actively involved in creating new knowledge to solve problems facing the discipline, mining industry, region and the country for ensuring that the created new knowledge is utilized in our industries in a timely fashion. He believes that Teaching, research, and scholarly activities have at least one thing in common—they change the way we think and do things.

Gap Sap With Pankaj Trivedi | Biker and Film Maker | S01E10 | Hindi


With over 15 years of experience in the training industry, conducting workshops for over 250 companies, it surprised most people when Pankaj decided to quit the corporate world and follow his heart to do what he loved the most - travel across the country on his bike, and seek adventures that stir his soul. And he got a lot more than what he expected.




Pankaj, a qualified expedition leader having graduated from the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, has trekked some tough terrains, biked across various locales and lived in harsh conditions, just to fuel his passion for adventure. And somewhere along the way, as he met with people from different regions and cultures, he graduated from being a traveler to a story-seeker. His interactions with people gave him a good pulse on how they feel, what they go through, and somewhere deep down; he wanted to make a difference in their lives.

Pankaj at Rosehub's Office during his Varanasi stay.

So he packed his bags, set off on his bike armed with his cameras, raw talent and a heart of gold, in search of stories that needed a happier ending. Join the Journey of Doing Right and help us complete the stories we find along the way, with our Do Righter Pankaj Trivedi. (Quoted from: http://doright.in/pankaj-trivedi/)

Abstract the Lecture
This Lecture will provide an overview of adaptive optics and its applications to imaging satellites, ground telescopes and laser systems. It will also provide an overview of research performed at NPS in Adaptive Optics Center of Excellence in these areas. NPS has Segmented Mirror Telescope (SMT) testbed.  SMT consists of 3 meter diameter space telescope with 6 segments. Each segment has 156 actuators for surface control and three fine and 6 coarse actua

tors for segment phasing. It has Shack-Hartmann wave front sensor for surface control and phase diversity sensor for segment phasing. It also has Fast Steering Mirror for jitter control. These mirrors need to have very fine surface accuracy in the range of 30 nm RMS.  Research is also performed on reducing primary mirror surface performance requirements by adding a deformable mirror in the optical path. Another area of research is correcting laser beam aberration due to atmosphere turbulence by using adaptive optics. Applications are laser communications and high energy lasers.

Living with a Star | A Lecture by Prof Robert (Erdelyi) von Fay-Siebenburgen


Professor Robert (Erdelyi) von Fay-Siebenburgen has delivered 23rd Institute Lecture of IIT(BHU) on  Monday, the 19th September, 2016

About the Speaker: 
Prof. Robertus von Fay-Siebenburgen (​popularly Prof​ Robertus Erdelyi, ​in​ publication​) i​s​ a ​
Professor and  ​Head of Solar Physics and Space Plasma Research Centre in School of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Sheffield, UK. He is also the Director of Debrecen Observatory in Hungary.
Audience During Lecture at Professor Gopal Tripathi Auditorium,
Department of Chemical Engg & Technology
He is a ​renowned expert​ in the general field of space plasma physics. The heating processes that generate and sustain the observed high temperature of the solar and stellar atmospheres have so far defied a quantitative understanding despite the multitude of efforts spanning over half a century. The aim of his research is to address these questions through theoretical (both numerical and exact analytical methods) and observational studies (joint ground-based and satellite missions). Particular attention is paid to the solar influence on the magnetosphere and Space Weather. Understanding the subtleties of plasma confinement at high temperatures is also strongly linked to modern fusion
physics. His interdisciplinary research (including e.g. Magnetohydrodynamics
computational fluid dynamics [CFD], kinetic theory) has direct applications in the new and rapidly emerging discipline of helioseismology and Space Weather, as well as basic teaching to engineering and science students .
Prof. Erdelyi has a wide expertise in teaching and research of space science, plasma physicsn,magetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves, fluid dynamics, analytical & computational techniques.

He is one of the world leaders in the field of solar & space plasma research (Citations > 6000, H-Index- 45) with an outstanding track record of publications in peer-reviewed journals (e.g., 02 Nature, 02 Science, 01 Nature Communication​s​, and numerous papers in ApJ, A&A,Solar Physics, MNRAS, Space Science Reviews: The top-most journals in Astronomy and Astrophysics). He is also the scientific advisor in​ ​
various Indian national projects, e.g., NLST, MAST etc, therefore, has a significant role in Indian Solar Physics.




Abstract of the Lecture (Verbatim as given by the speaker):
“Did you know that more than 98 per cent of material in the Universe is in plasma state? Did you know the atmosphere of stars like the Sun is also in plasma states with temperatures of a few millions of degree K? And, finally, did you also know that the atmosphere of planets in the Solar System strongly interact with plasma flows originating from the Sun causing spectacular phenomena like the Aurora?

In this talk, I will introduce you to the exciting and fascinating world of plasma-astrophysics.
I will demonstrate why the Sun, being the most proxy space plasma laboratory, is so key in this technology-driven world.
I will also address one of the most frightening phenomena that can threaten human civilisation and life in the Solar System: massive energetic storms determining Space Weather. Finally, I will address how the Sun can contribute to solving another great challenge facing the humanity: our endless appetite for clean and green energy.”
