NUtons – Uddalak Bhaduri, Sarthak Tripathi and Shreyas Sanghvi won the second prize at Europe's largest hackathon "Junction 2018" held at Aalto University, Finland. The event saw attendance of 740 students from 105 nationalities. The team received €1000 Euros and a six-month funding of their idea at Finland, if they decide to continue. They also worked at Espoo City Challenge under the Office of Mayor, Espoo City, Finland.
Hitesh Mittal, (B.Tech CSE) with ECE Faculty - Dr. Nitin Bhatia submitted their paper titled 'Broadcasting a laser using Bragg grating for free-space optical communication' to PHOTONICS 2018.
It was accepted for Poster Presentation at the conference. The venue of PHOTONICS 2018 - The International Conference on Fiber Optics and Photonics - is Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, New Delhi, India. Conference dates: 12th to 15th December 2018. In their paper, the authors demonstrate a technique for broadcasting a laser source in free-space using a Bragg grating. The multiple diffraction orders are used as multiple receiving points. They also show that cascaded gratings would increase the number of receiver points. This method is easy to implement, low-cost and scalable to a large number of receiver points.
Other NUtons who performed really well in their respective competitions are:
