Abstract:
The 3rd edition of Bangalore Nano organized by The Department of IT, BT and S&T, Government of Karnataka under the guidance of Vision Group on Nanotechnology was inaugurated today at the Lalit Ashok. The focal theme of Bangalore Nano 2010 is "Frontiers of Nanotechnology: Impact on India. Eminent scientists participated at the National Lecture Series and outlined the ways on how nano technology can improve several areas that affect daily life.

Nano Research Holds Big Promises

Bangalore | Posted on December 8th, 2010

Prof. Rudra Pratap, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, chairing the session at the National Lecture Series, said, "There was a general thinking that scientists usually focus only on research but are not capable of ensuring that work resulting in some products. But this year, Bangalore Nano proves that is not true. Here are the speakers from academic institutions who are instrumental in bringing out products out of their research."

Prof. V Ramgopal Rao, Department of Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai, said, "We have a Rs 100 crore facility which is a joint project of IISc and IIT, Mumbai. This is catering to the needs of several institutions across India. We are working on biosensor arrays using polymers to detect heart attack. The aim is to develop a single hand held package in less than Rs 100. A prototype is already developed and it detects all cardiac markers in blood within seven minutes. The same devise can be developed to detect RDX and other explosives, which will replace a sniffer dog. Our IIT, Mumbai incubated a private limited company take this product forward."

Prof. Pushan Ayub, Department of Condensed Matter Physics, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, said, "Metal Nanorods can be used to manufacture very strong materials and nano electronics. A collection of nano rods have excellent additive properties. Nano rods can be coated on metals to repel water."

Dr Satyajit Mayor, Professor, Cellular Organising and Signaling Group, National Center for Biological Sciences, Bangalore, said, "Living cells are examples of intrinsic work at nano scale. Cellular compartmentalization is the pillar of nano machines. Understanding nano architecture thoroughly can lead to creation of several applications."
