Raigarh : LEDs have swept the conventional lighting marketplace for a variety of reasons, most notably their extended lifespans, reduced energy consumption and lower maintenance requirements. LED lights use about 50 percent less electricity than traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen options, resulting in substantial energy cost savings, especially for spaces with lights that are on for extended periods. Keeping in view the importance of LED lighting in modern era, the Department of Physics, School of Sciences, OP Jindal University, Raigarh organized a guest lecture on ‘Importance of LED Lighting and Motivation for Research” for the students of B.Sc. and M.Sc., research scholars and faculty members on 30th November 2018. The lecture was delivered by Dr S. J. Dhoble, Professor, Department of Physics, R.T.M. Nagpur University, Nagpur.
Talking about the LED lights, Dr Dhoble said that LED lights are Energy efficient and aim light in a specific direction unlike conventional bulbs, which emit light—and heat—in all directions. This directional lighting capability reduces wasted light and energy. He also informed that by 2030, the DOE estimates that LED lighting could save 190 terawatt hours of electricity per year. The lecture was very interactive and covered the various aspects of the LED lights.
On 1st December, 2018, Dr Dhoble Conducted a one-hour session on Research paper writing, synopsis writing, project writing and gap identification for the research scholars of OP Jindal University. At the end of the session, Dr G. C. Mishra, Head-Department of Physics said that the lecture was beneficial to both the students and faculty members; and thanked the resource person and all the participants for their co-operation. Dr R. D. Patidar, Pro-VC and Registrar, OPJU and Dr P. S. Bokare, Dean, School of Engineering congratulated the organizers for successful organisation of the fruitful guest lectures. >
