Awards and Recognition

  • Prof. Samit K. Ray, the Director of the Center, has been elected as the Fellow of the National Academy of Sciences India, 2017.

  • Dr. Manik Pradhan, Associate Professor in CBS department of the Centre has been awarded the prestigious "Dayawati Rastogi Award" for the best invited lecture in ICSBAM-2017.

  • Professor Anjan Barman has been selected as a Program Committee Member of the prestigious 23rd International Colloquium on Magnetic Films and Surfaces (ICMFS-2018), which will be held from July 22-27, 2018 at the University of California in Santa Cruz CA, USA. The 23rd International Colloquium on Magnetic Films and Surfaces (ICMFS-2018) is a satellite conference to the 21st International Conference on Magnetism to be held from July 15-20, 2018 in San Francisco CA, USA. The ICMFS-2018 (https://icmfs2018.physics.ucsc.edu/) continues the tradition of previous Colloquia, which started in 1964 in London UK, but has not been held in the USA for 33 years. Pursuing the idea of free circulation of scientists, the ICMFS-2018 will bring together scientists from all areas of magnetism in lower dimensions. The Colloquium aims at exchange of new results and ideas for advancing the field of magnetism at surfaces, interfaces, in micro and nanostructures as well as of spin-dependent phenomena. The Program Committee consists of leading scientists of magnetism around the globe and Prof. Barman is the sole representative of India in this committee.

  • Mr. Samiran Choudhury from the group of Prof. Anjan Barman has won the MRSI Young Scientist Colloquium Award 2017 (Best Poster) by the MRSI Kolkata Chapter.

  • Mr. Mithun Pal in Dr. Manik Pradhan's research group has won the "Dayawati Rastogi Oral Presentation Award" in ICSBAM-2017.
