OSA Traveling Lecturer Program 2017

Semiconductors have played an important role in the development of information and communications technology, solar cells, solid state lighting.  Nanowires are considered as building blocks for the next generation electronics and optoelectronics.

We are happy to announce the OSA Traveling Lecturer is approved for 2017. This year, Prof. Chennupati Jagadish (Australian National University, Canberra, Australia ) is coming to IIT(ISM) Dhanbad to deliver the lecture and enlighten about Semiconductor Nanowires for Optoelectronics Applications.

The details of the program are:
