An exhibition program was conducted on 5th and 6th of March, 2015. Dr. Nandakumaran, Chairperson, Department of Physics inaugurated the exhibition.
The exhibition named Light: Beyond the Bulb is an open-source international exhibition program for the International Year of Light to showcase the incredible variety of light-based science being researched today across the electro-magnetic spectrum, across scientific disciplines, and across technological platforms.The glow of a candle, the rise of the Sun, and the illumination of a lamp are things that can bring comfort and warmth to our lives. Humans are, after all, drawn to light. But there is more to light, quite literally, than meets the eye. Light takes on many forms – from radio waves to microwaves to X-rays and more that are largely invisible and undetectable without modern technology. Light in all of its forms allows us to communicate, entertain, explore, and understand the world we inhabit and the Universe we live in. This exhibit shows some examples of the myriad of wonderful things that light can do, and how it plays a critical role in our lives every day.
