Ph.D. programme at RRCAT
Invitation to pursue Ph.D. programme in specialized areas of Physics, Chemistry, and Life Sciences at the Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology, Indore.
Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology (RRCAT), Indore, was founded in 1984 by the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) for dedicated pursuit of R&D in the areas of Accelerators, Lasers, Plasma Physics, Cryogenics, Vacuum technology etc. Since then, the Centre has set up two Synchrotron Radiation Sources : Indus-1 & Indus-2, which are national research facilities, and many smaller accelerators for radiation processing applications. The Centre has excellent cryogenic facilities as well as state-of-the-art equipments for low temperature physics measurements. A variety of laser systems, particularly high power lasers, have been built and are being used for a wide range of applications. These include gas lasers (like copper vapor lasers, CO2 lasers), solid state lasers (like diode pumped solid state lasers and semiconductor lasers). Lasers are deployed for the studies in the areas like biomedical applications of lasers and laser-plasma interaction. The Centre also has long standing programme in the areas of RF-superconductivity, low-temperature physics, material science, cold atom physics, non-linear optics, opto-electronics, nano-science etc.
RRCAT is a Constituent Institute of the “Homi Bhabha National Institute” (HBNI), a Deemed University, and invites students with appropriate qualifications to pursue Ph.D. programme in various specialized areas of physics, chemistry and biology, listed above. As per the rules of HBNI, the Ph.D. programme consists of course work of one year duration and research work of up to 4 years duration. The Ph.D. 2011 programme will commence on Aug.1, 2011. DAE Junior Research Fellowships will be offered to those selected for the pursuit of Ph.D. The fellowship amount is 16,000 per month for the first two years and 18,000 per month for the next three years, subject to satisfactory progress.
