Chai and Why?

The Science, Technology and Art of Gramophone Records
Suresh Chandvankar


Sunday, October 6, 2019
11 a.m.
Prithvi Theatre
Before the advent of the "digital" age of music, gramophone records spinning on turntables brought sound and music to our life for almost a century. Analog sound reproduction has existed way before computers and lasers, even before most homes had electricity. How is sound stored and played back from a record? Join us on a historical journey into the world of gramophone records.
About the speaker: Suresh Chandvankar, retired from TIFR, has had a passion for collecting records for over 50 years, and founded the Society of Indian Record Collectors.

Make it crystal clear!
Ruta Kulkarni
TIFR
What does the word "crystal" bring to mind? Sugar crystals in your chai? Precious crystals in jewellery? Solar cells and mobile phones maybe? Or egg shells and chocolate? Crystalline materials are all around us, and especially single crystals are key to several of our 21st century devices. Let's take a look at what crystals are, how they form in nature, how they can be grown in the lab (or the kitchen!) and how they impact the world today. Of course, you can try your hand at growing some crystals during the session as well!
About the speaker: Ruta Kulkarni works on the growth of single crystals of various materials at the department of condensed matter physics and materials science at TIFR.

This session will be live web cast
