Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Sustainable Development Achieving the SDGs through Education, Wellbeing, and Innovation

    ISC 2022 is dedicated to the Niti Aayog policies to promote sustainability through exchange of ideas emerging out of the academia. The ISC is an annual conference that is held in virtual mode until COVID restrictions on travel exist. The vision of the conference is to capacitate Academia with the necessary ideas that provide insights of the grassroot level development to various stakeholders of the Niti-Aayog policies. Towards this goal, the conference creates a conjunction of various stakeholders of Niti-Aayog policies that include- academic institutions, government bodies, policy makers and industry.

    The ISC organizers make concerted efforts to promote academic research that would technological, scientific, management & business practices, and insights into policy merits & disruptions. The framework of exchange of ideas is geared towards adoption of deep technologies, fundamental sciences & engineering, energy research, energy policies, advances in medicine & related case studies.

    This framework enables the round table discussions between the academia, industry and policy makers through its range of plenary and keynote speakers.

    Dr. Sudeshna Ray’s research at the interface of Chemistry and Material Science is focused on the development of Novel Inorganic based Luminescent materials for the application in white Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and as Spectral Converters in Solar Cell. The novel materials can be a single composition multi-centred phosphor or near UV/blue excitable blue, green, yellow and red emitting phosphor. The utilization of ‘Green’ solution based Synthesis Methodology for the precise control of the composition of the phosphors and achievement of a homogenous distribution of small amounts of activators in the host compounds is the main paradigm of my Research. In addition, to my previous focus on Synthesis, Characterization and Optical studies of size and shape tuned nanocrystalline Y2O3, YVO4 and YPO4 based phosphors, I am extensively involved into the research for the development of Advanced Luminescence Materials so called Quantum Cutters for the application in Solar Cell. A unifying theme of my research is the compositional tuning of the properties of extended solids through solid solution; sometimes referred to as the game of x and y, as, for example, in Sr2(1-x-y/2)Eu2xLaySi1-yAlyO4. Design of New phosphor for LEDs and fabrication of LEDs using the phosphors is an integral part of my Research. Currently, I am involved in the synthesis of Persistent Phosphors for the fabrication of Glow Bullet for Defense Application. RESEARCH INTERESTS • Exploration of New Phosphors by Mineral Inspired Methodology • Development of water soluble silicon compound by alkoxy group exchange reaction • Synthesis of Eu2+ and Ce3+ doped silicate phosphors using water soluble silicon compound • Solution Synthesis of ‘Size’ and ‘shape’ tuned Nanomaterials • Characterization of Nanocrystalline phosphors by XRD, TEM, FE-SEM and Raman spectroscopic measurement. • Study of ‘Up-conversion’, ‘Down-conversion’, ‘Down-shifting’ phenomena by steady state photoluminescence and lifetime measurement and analysis. • Measurement of ‘Quantum Efficiency’ and Thermal stability of phosphors. • Development and optical study of ‘Quantum Cutting’ Materials as Spectral Converter for Solar cell
