The Central Scientific Instruments Organization (CSIO),Sector 30 on Monday celebrated National Technology Day,wherein various scientists shared information regarding the latest technologies developed by it and those under the process of development by the organisation.
An open day was held from 9 am to 1 pm by the CSIO in which a large number of members of the general public and students from schools,colleges and universities from the region went around various laboratories of the organisation and also interacted directly with the scientists.
A quiz competition was also held in which questions related to science and technology,National Technology Day and CSIO/ CSIR were asked.
Dr Manjit Singh,the director of the Terminal Ballistics Research Laboratory,Chandigarh,delivered a lecture on photonics and detonators. He said that there is an opportunity of collaboration with the CSIO in areas like fast optical instruments,pyrometers to measure transient explosion effects,photonics to measure detonics,blast measurement systems and laser-based projectile measurement systems and laser initiation of explosives.
Dr Girish Sahni,Director,CSIO,highlighted the contribution of CSIO in medicine,society,defense and other areas. He further said that the CSIO has the right soil and environment to grow talents,which can convert scientific research into patents and products useful for society.
Similarly,Dr Amod Kumar,chief scientist of the Biomedical Instrumentation explained research and development on anesthesia workstation. He further said that tests on anesthesia ventilator,depth of anesthesia and other specific areas related to the project have been done. He further illustrated the organisations work on robotic surgery and said that with the help of robotic surgery,surgeries could be done with utmost perfection.
Other scientists of the organisation also spoke about the instruments which can detect pesticides in the soil and the application of the instruments in the field of agriculture.
