About RMC

Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman

Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman was an Indian physicist. He employed monochromatic light from a mercury arc lamp which penetrated transparent material and was allowed to fall on a spectrograph to record its spectrum. He detected lines in the spectrum which he later called Raman lines. He presented his theory at a meeting of scientists in Bangalore on 16 March 1928, and won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930. In his memory, research students in Physics department of Savitribai Phule Pune University organise Raman Memorial Conference every year.

RMC The Raman Memorial Conference, started in the year 1994, is organized annually by the research students of the Department of Physics, Savitribai Phule Pune University. The two day conference is enriched by scientific talks and discussions. There are five invited talks with oral sessions. The invited talks are delivered by eminent scientists from various fields to promote the interaction between the scientists and the students. The open discussion after each oral presentation and at poster session is a key to self assessment and self understanding. Ever since the event started, it has continuously grown in all aspects. The conference aims to encourage young researchers working in physical sciences and related areas to present their work, interact among themselves and with eminent scientists in relevant fields.

Motivation of RMC

We, at RMC strive to bring together researchers from the broad areas of science to deliver talks, discuss and exchange new ideas on recent advances of different fields. The purpose of this conference is to provide a platform for discussing promising developments in different areas as outlined below. Further, this gathering will enable delegates to establish research collaborations as well as link up for future collaborations.
We anticipate that the Raman Memorial Conference outcome will lead to significant contribution to the current state of knowledge in these up-to-date fields. In the interest of presenting original abstracts as either oral presentations or posters, the organizing committee of the conference invites prospective authors to submit their abstracts.

Authors are invited to submit an abstract. Abstracts can be submitted for either oral or poster presentation. Abstract Template given below.

RMC 2024 Theme

Smart Materials for Science and Technology

The theme of the RMC 2024 conference is “Smart Materials for Science and Technology”. Smart materials lie at the heart of the technological revolution, impeccably blending science and innovation to create materials. We are in the era of Technology, which is being advanced with the aid of in-depth exploration of Science. The ongoing global research efforts stimulate our scientific and technological development. Preparing material in the lab, testing it, and subsequently using it for our day-to-day purposes propels it toward a worthy act in humankind's development. Smart materials for smart technologies pave the way for a promising future where materials serve their intended purpose and also actively enhance the quality of modern life.
With this inspiration, aiming at researchers from different fields to illuminate this transformative force, we are happy to announce the RMC 2024.
Join us to propagate like waves and exchange energy like particles!!
Although the theme in itself is multidisciplinary and wide enough to cover almost every research topic, to mention a few, the planned sessions include the following topics:

  • Atoms, Molecules, complex systems, and their multiscale modelling
  • Thermodynamics
  • Soft matter
  • Semiconductors
  • Spectroscopy

  • RMC 2024 is a platform to bring together researchers from the broad areas of science to deliver talks, discuss and exchange new ideas on recent advances of respective fields.
