Plasma Speakers - ITSP 2016
Your very own geeky speakers which vary air pressure using high-energy electrical plasma instead of a solid diaphragm. The coolest loudspeaker you can ever own! You can find the abstract, documentation and other links here!
Google's PageRank Algorithm - ITSP 2016
Ever wondered how search engines work, and what goes behind it providing the correct results almost every time? Pulkit Sareen explores Google's PageRank algorithm and how it works! You can find a detailed report on his findings here.
Computer Architecture - SoS 2016
We use microprocessors in different forms for our daily necessities. But what goes inside such a processor? Dhruv Shah explores how processors are built from the basics of digital electronics and how the complex systems fit in their places. A detailed report of his findings can be found here!
Cosmology - SoS 2016
Ever looked up at the sky and wondered how it all came to be? How all of the universe began in the first place? And why things out there are the way they are? Thariq Shanavas explores the fascinating and mysterious world of Cosmology, all the way from the Big Bang, to the flatness of the universe - down to the possibility of Big Crunch! You can find an interesting report to read here!
Algebraic Techniques in Geometry - SoS 2016
The mathematics of origami and polyhedral shapes has always been interesting and the underlying geometry uses concepts deeply rooted in abstract algebra and group theory etc. Abhijeet Melkani explores various ways to explain and unfold the mysteries of polyhedral geometry! You can find a report of his learnings here!
Quantum Computation - SoS 2016
Recent advancements in the world of spintronics have opened up a new field of research on the boundaries of Physics and Computer Science. Can we achieve the dream of a Quantum Computer? Sanket Chirame studies the basics of Quantum logic and all that goes in, to establish the concept of a Quantum Computer. You can find a report of his learnings here!
Special Theory of Relativity - SoS 2016
Special relativity has replaced the conventional notion of an absolute universal time with the notion of a time that is dependent on reference frame and spatial position. Rittick Roy explored this exciting field of science in his report, which can be found here!
Cymatics - ITSP 2015
We have all drawn waves and heard sound. This project aims to visualise waves in various forms - on the surface of corn syrup, water stream, and the show stopper - The Ruben's Tube!!
