Symposium on Mechanical Testing at Small Length Scales at IIT Delhi [Oct 20-21]: Registrations Open

About the Symposium

Probing the mechanical behaviour of materials at the nanoscale is necessary for the development of new nanostructured materials and continued miniaturization of engineering devices electronic components, thin films, and surface coatings.

This program will cover topics related to cutting edge developments in nanoscale mechanical characterization of materials, such as metals, alloys, ceramics, and organic crystals, which will be used for such applications.

The talks will demonstrate both operando and in-operando mechanical testing techniques such as high throughput testing, high-temperature testing, in-situ measurements and introduce data science approaches for the same. The themes of the lectures will be relevant to audiences from academia and industry.

About IIT Delhi

Indian Institute of Technology Delhi is one of the 23 IITs created to be Centres of Excellence for training, research and development in science, engineering and technology in India.

Established as College of Engineering in 1961, the Institute was later declared as an Institution of National Importance under the “Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act, 1963” and was renamed as “Indian Institute of Technology Delhi”. It was then accorded the status of a Deemed University with powers to decide its own academic policy, to conduct its own examinations, and to award its own degrees.
