The School of Physics, University of Hyderabad (UoH) hosted the Silver Jubilee of National Symposium on Cryogenics during 8-10 December 2014. The symposium provided a unique opportunity to share the recent research & developments with a focus on the growth of ‘Cryogenics & Superconducting’ science and technology in India. This distinctive symposium platform has been used to contribute further in the area of cryogenic engineering, superconductivity, application of cryogenics in the area of medicine, space research and technology developments. The NSC-25 is also of importance to share the experience as India has ventured into a number of international projects involving Cryogenics and Superconductivity in the recent years.
Prof. Rajender Singh from School of Physics was the convener for this symposium.
The Symposium attracted a very good response from the Cryogenics & Superconductivity community from Universities, Research Institutes and Industries. More than 180 contributed papers by more than 450 authors reflect the growing strength of the community. Some industries also showcased their products and their activities at NSC-25.
Prof R. Srinivasan, Dr. T. S. Radhakrishnan and Dr. R. G. Sharma were conferred with life-time achievement award by the Indian Cryogenics Council for their contribution towards the growth of Cryogenics and low temperature Physics in the country.
