SCIENCE DAY HELD AT 23rd February 2017
In science day power point presentations were given by UG science students on the topic
KMV STUDENTS VISITED TO BHAKRA DAM, NANGAL
Physics students visited Bhakra Dam to enhance their knowledge about the generation of electricity. They also visited another power generation house at Ganguwal near Anandpur Sahib. There they learnt basic working techniques, such as, rotation of turbines and coupling of turbine with generator and then synchronizing voltage and frequency of the electrical signal. They have also learnt how electricity is transmitted from the generation house to various power grates and then to various commercial, residential areas.
A group of 50 students of B.Sc.(Non Medical&C.Sc.) Sem IV from KMV , visited Indian Institute of Science Education & Research (IISER) ON 10TH March 2017, Mohali to enhance their knowledge about the various innovative demonstrations of Physics concepts. Firstly they went to e –room where they watched audio- visuals regarding establishment of various IISER institutes in all over India and role of IISER, Mohali toward the national research projects. Then they visited hi-tech Physics Labs where students viewed different apparatus based on phenomena’s like Stefan’s constant, equipotential surface, parallel plate capacitor, flux , magnetic field , SQUID apparatus and radon sampling of an A.C. source. They also visited lab having different furnaces which work at different temperature including arc furnace and also ultra low temperature lab where temperature of helium maintained at 0.01 K.
It was a trip to the place where science, fun & learning are inseparable. It was an eye-opener trip for students about research and innovative ideas.
Extension Lecture by Deptt.of Electronics (Er. VarunSood) on 18th Feb. 2017

The resource person was ErVarunSood Associate Professor at Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar. In his lectures he interacted with the students of M.Sc. Physics and students of B.Sc(Electronics). He explained the communication using optical fibre in a very interesting way. He also explained how optical fibres are fabricated and used for communication processes. He gave vast knowledge about advantages using the optical fibre rather than other cables. He explained various applications of optical fibres in medicals, electronics, defence etc.
EXTENSION LEC ON HOW TO MAKE MATERIALS WITH SMART PROPERTIES
P.G. Department of Physics of K.M.V. organised an extension lecture on the topic “How to make materials with smart properties ”. The resource person was Dr. Sachin Tyagi , Scientist, Analytical Techniques Division from CSIR, Chandigarh. He interacted with the students of M.Sc. Physics & Science undergraduate students. He started the talk with classification of future materials with smart properties and explained the various levels of structure and development process. He explained different techniques to synthesis nano materials and also heat treatment process of nano materials along with the purpose and their types. In his interaction with students he explained how to develop materials with desired properties by restructuring them at atomic scales. He guided the students about the research work and told about the criteria to enter in Ph.D. Programmes and summer training course in research centre.
KMV GIRLS EXPERIENCED SKY GAZING
P.G. Department of Physics of KanyaMahaVidyalaya, The Heritage Institution, organized an event ‘Sky Gazing’ for about more than 100 science students on campus.
