Aligarh, March 2: A two-day National Conference on 'Recent Trends in Materials Science and Spectroscopy' was organised by the Department of Physics, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) in which scientists, academicians, researchers, students and industrialists discussed how emerging technologies are changing basic sciences.
Speaking as the Chief Guest, AMU alumnus, Prof Ajay Gupta (Director, Amity Centre for Spintronic Materials, Amity University, Noida) pointed out that with advance multiple experimental techniques, research has become material centric unlike earlier times, when research was technique centric. "Collaborations are the need of the day as it is difficult to have all sophisticated techniques at one place," he added.
Reminiscing student days in AMU, he said, "The years when I was pursuing MSc and Phd in AMU will always remain the most intimate to me."
AMU Pro Vice Chancellor, Prof M H Beg emphasised that scientists are now thinking of technology, which can transfer massive objects from one place to another in seconds.
He added that unimaginable innovations have taken place in modern times because of the progress in science and technology.

Prof Tauheed Ahmad delivered the welcome address, while Dr Shahid Husain proposed the vote of thanks. Mehroosh Fatema conducted the programme.
Fourteen invited talks from noted material scientists and spectroscopists and a poster presentation will take place in five different sessions of the two-day conference.
