S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences

The S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences is an autonomous research institute engaged in research in basic sciences. The institute was founded under Department of Science and Technology, Government of India in 1986 as a Registered Society. The Centre was established to honour the life and work of Professor S. N. Bose who was a colossal in theoretical physics and has made some of the most fundamental conceptual contributions in the development of Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Statistics. The Centre has emerged as a major institution for research and development in Basic Sciences.

News & Achievements

  • Mr. Shubham Purwar from the group of Dr. Thirupathaiah Setti has been awarded the "Best Poster Presentation" Prize on his work “Investigation of the Anomalous and Topological Hall effect in the Layered Monoclinic Ferromagnet Cr2.76Te4” at the Annual Conference on Quantum Condensed Matter (QMAT-2023) held in NISER Bhubaneswar during 27-30 November, 2023.
  • Prof. Ranjit Biswas, Senior Professor of the Centre has been elected as a Fellow of the National Academy of Sciences, India (NASI).Congratulations to Prof. Biswas
  • Dr. Shubhasis Haldar, Associate Professor of the Centre has been elected as INSA ASSOCIATE FELLOWS 2023.Congratulations to Dr. Haldar for his work in understanding chaperone biology using single molecule tools. Using covalent magnetic tweezers Dr Haldar’s group has examined how chaperones mechanically influence the cellular energetics and respond to mechanical force.
  • Dr. Tapas Baug, Assistant Professor in Department of Astrophysics and High Energy Physics of S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences has been recognized for his 'Outstanding contribution as a Reviewer for Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy, Indian Academy of Sciences, in the year 2022'.
  • Mr. Ardhendu Pal, a PhD student from the group of Professor Manik Pradhan has received the "Best Oral Presentation Award" for his work Cavity Ring-down Spectroscopy in the P. C. Ray Memorial International Conference on “Contemporary Ideas, Innovations & Initiatives in Chemical Sciences” held at Presidency University, Kolkata during 23-24 August, 2023.

Research Highlights by DST Media Cell

Efficient electrodes for superior supercapacitors synthesized

Scientists have synthesized a class of porous and crystalline organic materials called covalent organic frameworks (COFs) incorporated with quinone groups and sulphur-containing thiophene groups that can act as efficient and versatile electrodes for pseudocapacitors because of their low density, high stability, and well-defined atomic arrangements.

Researchers find doping technique to create material for efficient memory devices

An inorganic material called Hafnium oxide (HfO2), so far used in optical coatings, may soon find use as efficient memory devices in computers, sensors and sonars as an effective alternative to silicon dioxide (SiO2).

New chemically stable cathode material can make Li-ion batteries more efficient

A newly synthesized crystalline, chemically stable material, belonging to the class of crystalline porous organic polymers with permanent porosity and highly ordered structures, could enhance energy density of found to be ideal as a cathode for Li-S batteries and make them more efficient.

Scientists design first-ever 2D composite quantum material useful for spintronic devices like transistors & diodes

A research team under the leadership of Prof. Tanusri Saha Dasgupta at the S.N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, an autonomous institution of the Department of Science and Technology (DST) focused their computational research on 2-D quantum materials, which are materials with confined geometry in one of the directions. 2-D materials are important as they are easier to assimilate in devices.
