1. The particulars of its organization, functions and duties

Organization

S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences is an Autonomous Research Institute established under Department of Science and Technology, Government of India in 1986 as a Registered Society. The Centre was established to honour the life and work of Professor S. N. Bose who was a colossal in theoretical physics and has made some of the most fundamental conceptual contributions in the development of Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Statistics.

In the last 31 years, the Centre has emerged as a major institution for research and development in Basic Sciences, specifically in the area of physical sciences and related disciplines. The Centre, while focusing on basic research, has also made a new move to contribute in application driven basic research, in particular, in areas of national needs.

Situated on a 15 acre lush-green picturesque campus in Salt Lake, the Centre is engaged in basic research (theoretical, computational and experimental) in selected areas of Physical and Chemical Sciences including Theoretical Sciences, Astrophysics and Cosmology, Condensed Matter Physics and Material Sciences, Nanosciences and Chemical and Biological Physics.

The Centre has advanced research facilities such as high performance computing facilities, advanced facilities for materials synthesis and characterization at nanoscopic level, and clean room facilities for nanolithography with features down to 20nm and related nanofabrication facilities. The Centre also has advanced experimental facilities at low temperature with high magnetic field, ultrafast and high frequency spectroscopy including femto-second systems, time resolved MOKE and Tera-Hertz Spectroscopy.

The Centre is also a major hub of advanced manpower training and linkage in this crucial area of Science and Technology. The Centre offers residential programme leading to PhD and has a vigorous Visitors & Linkage programme.

Major Research Areas

Astrophysics and Cosmology

Quantum Optics Information theory, Astrophysics around black holes, Cosmology, Observational & Experimental Astrophysics

Chemical, Biological and Macro-molecular Sciences

Study of complex molecular and hybrid systems (including biomolecules) using Experiments and Simulations, ultrasensitive & ultrafast spectoscopy techniques.

Condensed Matter Physics and Material Sciences

Experimental, theoretical and computational studies on Physics of materials, from nano dimension to bulk, Nanolithography and devices
