The program aims to give a glimpse of hands-on research opportunities in various branches of experimental physics such as Accelerator Physics, Atomic and Molecular Physics, Material Science, Nuclear Physics and Accelerator Mass Spectrometry. The selected students are expected to work on a research project under the supervision of Scientists/ Engineers at IUAC. A few special evening lectures by eminent Physicists/ Scientists of the country and a guided tour of the experimental facilities of IUAC will also be a part of the program.
Students are required to submit a Project Report validated by the project supervisor upon the successful completion of the project. There will be a presentation by the students about their work done on the last day of the program. Three best presentations will be selected and will be awarded certificate of merit.
