Project Name: Net Zero transport Plan for Rajkot City

Project Description: Net-zero urban transport in the situation of mobility poverty in the cities of India and the global South requires a low-carbon transport that offers enhanced mobility for segments of the population. The increased emissions will require sequestration at the city level through a land-use strategy. Hence, a net-zero transport strategy has to be embedded within the city-level planning efforts, including a spatial strategy through land use planning and a transport plan integrated with the land use plan. The proposal we put forward is based on this approach. This proposal is for an ‘Inclusive Net-Zero Transport Plan for Surat’ and will be referred to as ‘INSTANZ.’ We propose to create three scenarios: Business as Usual (BAU), Technology Scenario of Net-Zero Emissions, and Inclusive Net-Zero Emissions Scenario for years 2030, 2040, and 2050.

Project Name: Experimental Plasma Physics – an interface between the probe sensors with the data acquisition system

Project Description: Understanding the energetic ions in the aurora borealis or the northern lights and controlling their energies are difficult as astrophysical measurements are rare. Laboratory double layers in expanding plasma can help to understand some of these astrophysical problems. The aim of this experimental plasma research is to study the formation of double layers and explore the possibilities to make the double layers stronger than predicted by the conventional plasma sheath theory.
Communication is important between the probe sensors with the data acquisition system for this experiment. Students under this summer project will get the opportunity to write code in the LabVIEW to make the interface with various equipment and measuring tools and store the data. Apart from using LabVIEW, students will get a chance to learn about the expanding radio-frequency plasma experiments and challenges to measure various plasma parameters including supersonic ion beam energy measurements.

Project Name: Development of two-level atomic model based on the density-matrix formalism

Project Description: The aim of this project is to build a theoretical model for a two-level atom interacting with a light-field and a magnetic field. This will be done by first calculating the total Hamiltonian of the system which is the sum of unperturbed Hamiltonian, light-atom interaction Hamiltonian and magnetic field-atom interaction Hamiltonian, and then the time-evolution of the system will be found by solving the Liouville equation. A student will perform computational simulations based on the density-matrix formalism using the Mathematica software.
Density matrix approach is used to describe an ensemble of quantum systems which is not in a fully coherent state. For example, the atoms in a vapour cell constitute an ensemble, in which relaxation processes such as collisions and spontaneous emission create decoherence among the atoms. Therefore, it is not possible to describe such ensembles with a single wave function as the wave function of every atom will be different. However, the average properties of atoms in the ensemble can be found by using the density matrix.

Work Expected of the Student: Student expected to read the relevant literature and write a programming code based on the atomic density matrix analysis.

Expected Qualification of the Student: Pursuing Masters

Project Name: Why are some dwarf galaxies still forming stars?

Project Description: Star-forming dwarf galaxies in the nearby Universe are excellent laboratories to inspect the key processes involved in star formation events in the early Universe and to decipher the physical processes behind star formation at sub-kiloparsec and kiloparsec scales. Dwarf galaxies have shallow gravitational potential and low metal content, which are not the most conducive environment to support star formation. So, why are some of the dwarf galaxies still forming stars? During the summer project, the intern will try to address this question. The candidate will get exposure to topics like extragalactic star formation, star formation indicators, and galaxy evolution. The intern will pick up skills related to multi-wavelength (photometric) data analysis of local volume galaxies, various python tools, and an exposure to relevant astronomical data repositories.

Work Expected of the Student: The intern will analyse high-resolution images of a few galaxies observed using the UVIT/AstroSat, and other multiwavelength data from space-based and ground-based telescopes, carry out literature surveys, and work in collaboration with the Astronomy & Astrophysics group members on this project. The candidate is expected to have good familiarity with Python programming, a good foundation in core physics areas (e.g. electromagnetic theory, thermodynamics, classical mechanics), good communication skills, and must be open to learning new skills.

Project Name: Phononic Frequency Combs

Project Description: Frequency combs represent a spectrum of equidistant frequencies and have revolutionised optical frequency metrology and laser spectroscopy (Nobel Prize in Physics, 2005). While the idea of frequency combs has now been a commonplace in optics and photonics, it was only in 2017 when I discovered its mechanical analogue as a PhD student at the University of Cambridge. I referred to this new mechanical phenomenon as “phononic frequency combs”.
The concept of phononic combs can extend the application space of frequency combs into mechanical, material and molecular sciences. The emergence of phononic combs is mediated by nonlinear modal coupling. While nonlinearity is essential for comb generation, the linear mechanical resonators have been proven to host phonon modes of high-quality factor (Q) and low-phase noise. Hence, it is a design challenge to engineer phononic frequency combs with low-phase noise and high-frequency stability.
My collaborative research with Prof. Richard Norte’s group at TU Delft provided a workaround for this challenge. By coupling a linear silicon nitride trampoline into an optical trap, we managed to excite phononic frequency combs through optomechanical coupling. Despite this, the number of teeth in a frequency comb has still been limited to ~10-30. Hence, we have now moved on to using active-cavities offering optical gain for generating broadband phononic combs. While we already have a good number of experimental observations, a rigorous theoretical model is still under development. The summer intern is supposed to systematically develop a theoretical model for the generation of phononic frequency combs via active-cavities.

Work Expected of the Student:

  • Mathematical Modelling of Phononic Frequency Combs
  • Numerical Modelling of Phononic Frequency Combs in MATLAB
  • Designing Phononic Frequency Comb Devices in COMSOL

Project Name: Simulation and Energy analysis of the Chemical Engineering flow sheet by using Aspen plus and Aspen Energy Analyser.

Project Description: In this work, the design and energy analysis of a chemical plant as a case study will be investigated. Initially, a process flow diagram for the production of the plant will be designed using the Aspen Plus V10.0 simulating tool. In this study, the simulation of the flowsheet and optimisation of parameters to achieve the desired target are also investigated. In comparison to the traditional energy approach, pinch analysis as an energy integration technique saves more energy and reduces utility costs. Therefore, in the second part of this work, pinch analysis is applied using Aspen Energy Analyser for the developed process plant, and a base case heat exchanger network (HEN) is developed.

Work Expected of the Student: As part of the internship, the student will be able to understand the basics of Aspen Plus software, how to build a process flow diagram using Aspen software, Simulation and optimisation, and finally energy saving for process flow sheet using another simulation tool.

Project Name: Reduction and management of e-waste: Behavioural interventions to reduce the Intention-behaviour gap

Project Description: Human behaviour is complex, and promoting behaviour change requires a strong understanding of how people behave in different situations and contexts. Many people are concerned about global warming, climate change, and its impacts on the environment and sustainability, but very few are actively engaged in enough mitigating behaviour to limit the well-understood harm to the environment which could be attributed to structural barriers beyond the control of the individual or psychological barriers, such as beliefs, values, and social norms. The objectives of the study are:

  • To study the reasons both ‘for’ or ‘against’ the adoption of e-waste reduction and management practices.
  • To explore the impact of different factors like attitude, subjective norms, perceived behavioral control, on the ‘intentions to act’ and ‘behaviour’.
  • To identify the impact of behavioural interventions in changing the behaviour.
  • The study will be based on an experimental method of research.

Work Expected of the Student: Providing support for data collection

Project Name: Examination of Heritage Materials

Project Description: This project is aimed at conducting examination of heritage / archaeological materials that includes inorganic and organic materials. Microscopic examination of object samples is a crucial aspect of art conservation and analysis, providing valuable insights into the composition, structure, , fabrication techniques and stability of the objects. The initial examination begins with a visual assessment of the object’s surface and structure. The collected samples are to be prepared for microscopic examination. This may involve embedding the sample in a resin or mounting it on a slide to stabilise it for analysis. In some cases, the sample may be cross-sectioned to reveal layering and stratigraphy. This includes recording observations, capturing images, annotating diagrams, and compiling data for characterising these samples. This project requires comprehensive literature search on chemical characterisation. This proposal considers factors such as ethical considerations, conservation principles, and the object’s aesthetic and historical value. The examination of heritage materials is a interdisciplinary process that combines scientific analysis, technical expertise, and contextual understanding to inform conservation decision-making and ensure the long-term preservation of cultural heritage.

Work Expected of the Student: Literature search, sample preparation, microscopy

Expected Qualification of the Student: Pursuing Masters
