CUSAT Granted Patent for Polymer Film For Electromagnetic Interference Shielding


 

           Dr MK Jayaraj                   Dr Jesna

  Cochin University of Science and Technology has been granted a patent for the invention of  ‘Free Standing Polymer Composite Film For Electromagnetic Interference Shielding And Process For Preparation Thereof’. Microelectronics Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering.

             The patent was granted to Dr. M. K. Jayaraj, Vice Chancellor, University of Calicut and former Professor and Head, Department of Physics, CUSAT, and Dr. Jasna M, MSCA Post-doctoral fellow, University of Oulu Finland.

  The invention is directed to an electromagnetic interference shielding composite and a free standing electromagnetic interference shielding film produced thereof. The film provides an electromagnetic interference shielding composite being lightweight, flexible, economic, and ease in processing than metal based composites. The high performance EMI flexible shield could be used for high frequency electronic devices to protect their components from incoming radiations induced by other electronic devices. This light weight and flexible EMI shield can be used in radar application, wireless communications, etc. to provide shielding from other unwanted signals.



CUSAT Asst. Professor to participate in SPARC General Assembly in USA


 


 Dr Madhu V., Asst. Professor, Department of Atmospheric Sciences, CUSAT has been invited  to attend the 7th SPARC General Assembly, which will be held at NCAR/UCAR in Boulder, USA, from 24 to 28 October 2022.

Dr Madhu  will present the topic ‘Air pollution in metropolitan cities of India’, in the conference.

            Dr. Madhu will present the study report prepared by the Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Laboratory (ACPL), headed by himself, with the help of  reports of the Central Pollution Control Board of India, for the period 2015-2022.. Dr. Madhu has presented papers in the  public meetings held in Italy (2008), New Zealand (2014) and Japan (2018). The 7th General Assembly of SPARC: ‘Stratosphere- Troposphere Processes and their Role in Climate’, is a core project of the World ClimateResearch Programme. The project will bring together a large community of scientists from all over the world. 



03.10.2022 CUSAT installs water-level monitoring system in the Cochin Estuary


 

 A radar tide-gauge for monitoring the water-level variability has been installed by the researchers of Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT), in the Cochin estuary. The system will measure real-time data on water-level variability every one minute and transmit the data instantaneously. The project was done with the help of  a KIIFB grant given to CUSAT.

          ‘The real-time retrieval of data’ was inaugurated by Vice Chancellor Dr. K.N. Madhusoodanan. The installation of the system was led by Dr. R. Sajeev, HoD and Dr. V. Vijith, Assistant Professor, Department of Physical Oceanography, CUSAT.

            The system's intended use includes predicting changes in sea level caused by sea-level variability arising from storm surges, harbour oscillations, coastally-propagating waves, inverse barometric effects due to atmospheric pressure fluctuations and tsunamis. The very high-resolution water-level data will help study the variability of the estuary and can be used to validate computer models used for predictions.



26.09.2022 CUSAT PHYSICS DEPARTMENT GETS 55 LAKHS RESEARCH GRANT

   Dr. Vineeth Mohanan. P  Dr. Prasad VV 



Kochi: Department of Physics, Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) will get 55 Lakhs as research grant  from the Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), under the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India.

          Physics Assistant Professors Dr. Vineeth Mohanan. P and  Dr. Prasad VV received the approval for the start-up research grant from SERB, for a duration of two years. Dr. Vineeth Mohanan received an amount of Rs. 33 Lakhs for the experimental studies of magnetic materials and Dr. Prasad received Rs. 22 Lakhs for the theoretical studies on soft matter  aggregation. The grant amount can be utilised for human resources and for the purchase of research equipment. Along with the project, a separate amount will be allocated by SERB for conducting scientific programs for the benefit of society.



CUSAT Assoc. Professor Dr. Mini Sekharan selected as Expert in NlTI AYOG Project

                                       Dr Mini Sekharan,

 Dr Mini Sekharan, Associate Professor  at the School of Industrial Fisheries, Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT), has been selected as expert in developing an action plan for tuna fish value chain in Lakshadweep. The tuna fish value chain is an important part of the Lakshadweep economy and its development is a key priority for NlTl Aayog.

          Dr. Mini Sekharan is the marketing consultant of Kerala Aqua Ventures International Ltd (KAVIL), a Government of Kerala Undertaking. She is also the international marketing consultant of Ornamental Fish International (OFI). She has been associated with several international projects and consultancies in sector development for a decade. Her selection is a proud recognition for CUSAT, said Vice Chancellor Dr. K.N. Madhusoodanan



CUSAT Granted Rs 20 cr for Translational Research Centre

 



 

The Kerala Government has granted Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) Rs 20 crore from KIIFB fund to set up a Translational Research Centre on the campus. 

              The proposed CUSAT Translational Research and Incubation Centre will play a major role in translating the fruits of academic research in the university to products and services beneficial to society. In the first phase, translational research facilities will be set up in five domains -- bio and life sciences, material sciences, sensor technology, electronic product design and Artificial intelligence and machine learning.  The 30,000 sq ft building will be equipped with common amenities and a start up space too. 

               In the second phase, a 50,000 sq ft building will provide translational facilities in the domains of agritech, fintech, transportation and mobility, medical technology and climate studies. The centre is expected to be financially-self sustaining within three years of launch.

              In the 2022-23 Budget, the state government had earmarked Rs 20 Crore each for various universities to set up Translational Research centers.
