The evening concluded with a vote of thanks .

Guest Lecture by Professor Les Butler,USA

 It was a prestigious occasion to have Professor Les Butler, a distinguished faculty of chemistry and material sciences from Louisiana State University, USA, to visit the AUH campus. The visit was aimed to align research interests of Prof. Butler with Amity University Haryana researchers and engage in a collaborative million dollar research on using X-Ray interferometer to improve “3D print head speed and accuracy”.


The event was initiated with lamp lighting by Prof. Butler and AUH dignitaries including Hon’ble Vice Chancellor Prof. P B Sharma, Hon’ble Pro Vice Chancellor Prof. Padmakali Banerjee, Director Amity Institute of Biotechnology Prof. S. M. Paul Khurana, Director Amity School of Engineering and Technology Maj. Gen. V.K. Narang, Deputy Dean Student Welfare and HOD ECE Prof. Priti Singh, Director of Admissions Prof. Vikas Madhukar, and Director of International Affairs Dr. Gunjan Sanjeev.


The seminar was prefaced with a floral welcome by Honorable Vice Chancellor and Pro Vice Chancellor Prof. P. B. Sharma and Prof. Padmakali Banerjee. Prof. Butler was bestowed with a traditional shawl, a memento and a traditional gift to commemorate the visit. The proceeding of seminar was orated by Mr. Yashil Handa, Department of Biomedical Engineering. Subsequent to Prof Vikas Madhukar giving a brief introductory report on Amity University Haryana, Prof. Butler started his presentation on X-Ray interferometers. 



The concept of Interferometery was introduced by Professor Les Butler with illustrations.  Afterwards, he focused towards 3D printing, its optimization, and the applications of interferometery in medicine. He emphasized the importance of multidisciplinary research and enlightened that his research team at LSU included physicists, computer scientists, biomedical physicists, electronic engineers, imaging experts, mathematicians, civil engineers, biologists and applied physicians. He pointed out the various fields where his     $1.1 Million interferometer could be implemented.


The presentation ended with acknowledging the issues that are still being faced while making 3D printers faster and better. He hinted that polymers with embedded wiring could be a breakthrough to solve this problem in future. Nevertheless he also emphasized the importance of using video and image data to observe and solve scientific problems.


A research team envisioned by Honorable Vice Chancellor and by Maj Gen V. K. Narang interacted with Prof. Les Butler to propose their contribution towards the research at hand. The Q and A session resulted in a healthy knowledge exchange between the esteemed guest and AUH faculties such as Prof. J P Dodeja, Dr. Priti Singh, Prof. Janak Patel, Mr. Chaman Nasa, Mr. Yashil Handa, Mr. Manoj Panday and many others. Three core areas of research (Material science, Robotics and Algorithm development) in which AUH research team could collaborate with Prof. Butler were identified by Hon’ble Vice Chancellor.


Prof. Butler ended the seminar by pointing out how impressed he was with the creativity and diversity at AUH. He departed from the campus on a positive note and encouraged AUH to make a research proposal and carry forward the strong research initiative
