CHARUSAT organized Short Term Experimental Training Program-3 (STETP-3)
The third short term experimental Training Program-3 (STETP-3) was organized by
Charotar University of Science & Technology (CHARUSAT), Changa, Dist. Anand, Gujarat
during 6th to 11th May 2013 at the Department of Physical Sciences under P D Patel
Institute of Applied Sciences. In order to pace with the vigorous developments in
nanoscience and nanotechnology, it is essential to know the foundation of relevant
concepts of physics and chemistry. The aim of these workshops was to reduce this
knowledge gap by Hands-On experiments in Nanoscience. The first of this series workshop
was held in May 2011 on basic understanding of concept of Physical Sciences under STETP
- 1. Looking to the response of the participants, the second workshop on Hands-on
Experiments in Nanoscience was organized during May 2012. In series of the same this
year, the third Short Term Experimental Training Program (STETP-3) emphasizing
“Hands-on Experiments in Nanoscience” was planned only for the 1st year B. Sc. Students
from St. Xavier’s College, Ahmedabad under the Coordination of Dr. C. K Sumesh, Dr. Bhavin
Patel, Dr. Kinnari Parekh and Dr. Sachin Joshi. The workshop was inaugurated by Dr. B G
Patel, Provost, CHARUSAT, Changa and by Prof. R V Upadhyay, Principal, P D Patel Institute
of Applied Sciences.
We believe that unless and until the individual ‘dirt’ his/her hands in the laboratory, it is
impossible to have a feel of the subject of utmost importance. The program was planned to
cover the basic concepts of physical and chemical sciences extended to synthesis of
nanomaterials and its characterization using sophisticated instruments like powder XRD
and UV-Visible Spectrophotometer. Total fourteen activities with three major experiments
which make the individuals understand why this field is called inter-disciplinary were
performed by participants. The manual for the same was prepared to impart basic required
inputs for performing the experiments which are designed such that the knowledge depth
increases along with the laboratory skills. More emphasis was given on the activity related
to the Nanoscience and analytical techniques with brief demonstration of data analysis.
