Incessant Photoluminescence from Semiconductor Nanocrystals: Challenges and Prospects

Semiconductor nanocrystals, also called quantum dots, with uninterrupted and bright photoluminescence are expected to bring groundbreaking advancements to luminescent displays, solar cells and biological imaging. Although highly-luminescent quantum dots based on cadmium and lead chalcogenides have been developed, stochastic fluctuation of photoluminescence intensity, also called blinking, continues to be a major challenge in the applications of these tiny crystals to single molecule imaging and single photon devices.

Renyi Entropy and Relative alpha-Entropy

Abstract: Renyi entropy was discovered by the Hungarian mathematician Alfred Renyi in 1961 as a measure of information alternative to Shannon entropy when one desires only a weaker form of additivity as opposed to strong additivity. Relative alpha-entropy  is the Renyi analogue of relative entropy (Kullback-Leibler divergence). In this talk I will discuss four problems, namely Campbell’s source coding problem, Massey-Arikan’s guessing problem, Huieihel et al.’s memoryless guessing problem, and Bunte-Lapidoth’s encoding of tasks problem.

Modelling and Control System Development of Grid Connected Solar PV Energy Conversion System

Solar Photo Voltaic (PV) based energy conversion systems can be broadly classified into stand alone systems and grid connected systems. Stand alone PV systems are very useful for generation and supply of electrical energy to remote locations where access to the conventional power grid is limited. Where as grid connected solar  PV renewable energy conversion is very common in micro grid systems, conventional grid systems and distributed generation.

Research Scholars' Day 2018

Institute will be organizing the first Research Scholars' Day on October 6, 2018. This is a day-long event consisting of seminars and poster presentations by students and faculty of IIT Palakkad. The chief guest to the event Prof. Sarit Kumar Das, Director IIT Ropar will deliver a lecture at 9.30 AM.

All students and faculty are invited to the technical sessions.

Title: DASH-aware Scheduling In Cellular Networks
Until recently, schedulers in cellular networks were designed for traditional single-rate video streaming and elastic data flows. While these schedulers incorporated sophisticated radio resource management techniques, they lack the mechanism to handle adaptive video streams, which behave quiet differently from the traditional video streams.
