KMV organises third episode of international series (Physics Chapter)
Dr. Michael Ojovan, Professor, Department of Materials, Imperial College, London, UK addresses the students
Jalandhar: Kanya Maha Vidyalaya has taken yet another innovative initiative to promote sciences among students by organising KMV International Series (Physics Chapter). Under these series students will be taken to world’s renowned research laboratories like CERN, ENEA etc. virtually. In order to inculcate the scientific temperament and curiosity of research among students, an initiative has been taken to organise interactive sessions with scientists of international repute.
In the third episode of KMV International series, Dr. Michael Ojovan, Professor, Department of Materials, Imperial College, London UK and former nuclear engineer at IAEA, was invited as the key speaker. The topic of Dr. Ojovan was the role of IAEA in the peaceful use of nuclear energy and radioactive waste materials. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is the world's central intergovernmental forum for scientific and technical co-operation in the nuclear field.
During his talk Dr.Ojovan discussed various aspects like sustainability, safety measurements and present status of nuclear reactors and nuclear waste. He presented a comprehensive overview of various aspects relating to the application of cogeneration with nuclear energy. He also shared a comprehensive data focusing on nuclear power plants worldwide. He further said that before selecting a waste processing strategy, it is essential to know and understand the waste source and rate of waste generation, as well as the amounts and characteristics of the waste. Later during interaction with students Dr. Ojowan answered queries of faculty as well as students. He shared his knowledge about radioactive materials and their disposal protocols.
Principal Prof. (Dr.) Atima Sharma Dwivedi lauded the efforts of P.G. Department of Physics for organising such an interactive live talk with renowned scientists and virtual visit to international laboratories. She expressed that students as well as faculty have availed this wonderful opportunity renowned personalities which otherwise could have never been possible.
