Institute colloquium of Prof. KC!

At the Institute, three to four faculty members are asked to give the Institute Colloquium every year; and, it is considered an honour to be asked. Today, Prof. Kamanio Chattopadhyay, Tata Chem Chair Professor and Chairman of the Department of Metallurgy gave the colloquium.

Prof. KC's talk was about forms, patterns, and crystal structures (or, in short, microstructures) as a result of ordering and repulsion at the atomic level. It was one of the nicest lectures that I have heard. The micrographs that were flashed were of very high quality. Prof. KC also brought out many of the issues and their resolution in microstructural evolution in a simple and easy-to-understand manner. Probably the overcast skies and the rainy weather was the reason for the relatively thin attendance; but, I would not have missed the lecture for anything.
