A workshop on “Low-Cost Modular Raman and Fluorescence Based Spectroscopy” was organized by Central Instrumentation Centre (CIC), UPES on Oct 07, 2021 in the Vivekananda Auditorium. Dr Ankush Vij introduced the dignitaries and welcomed all the participants. Prof Sunil K Rai (Hon’ble Vice Chancellor) and Prof Gurvinder Virk (Dean SoE) graced this occasion with their presence and also addressed the participants. Dr S M Tauseef (Associate Dean R&D) presented an overview of the research facilities available at CIC. Dr Rajendra Joshi (CEO, RI group) along with his engineers Mr Kuldeep Patel and Mr CK Patel conducted the work shop on their indigenously designed RIMS set up which they brought to UPES for practical demonstration and hands-on experience to the participants. They explained the Raman spectroscopy in very simple way along with its experimental set up. They also demonstrated absorbance, reflectance and fluorescence using same RIMS instrument. All participants attended the workshop very attentively and interacted with the industry team for their queries. The workshop was held in hybrid mode, around 70 participants including faculty members, research scholars and students were present in the auditorium and around 35 participants joined online through zoom link. RIMS set-up was also kept operational for testing research samples for Raman spectra. Many participants performed Raman experiment and around 50 samples were tested till 6:30 pm. The workshop concluded with a formal vote of thanks from Dr Prashant Rawat. The workshop was coordinated by Dr Ankush Vij, Dr Ranjeet Brajpuriya, Dr Ashish Sharma and Dr S M Tauseef.
