Institute of Advanced Study in Science & Technology

An Autonomous Institute under Department of Science & Technology, Government of India

Presentation

The IASST was founded in 1979 by the Assam Science Society, which is the premier scientific academy of Assam. The Institute was inaugurated by the Nobel Laureate Prof. Dorothy Hodgkin on November 3, 1979. The main aims of the Institute are generation of infrastructure for carrying out high quality research in some selected areas of science & technology, tables de multiplication enrichment of the culture of scientific research, both of which would lead to the all-round development of the State as well as of the North-Eastern region as a whole.

The IASST got itself registered as a Society in 1991 under the Societies Registration Act. In 1993, the Govt. of Assam allotted a plot of 20 acres at Paschim Boragaon in Greater Guwahati for building the campus of the Institute. The Department of Science & Technology, Govt. of India provided the necessary funds to construct the necessary infrastructure thereon. Currently, the IASST is an autonomous institute under the aegis of Govt. of Assam.

Objectives

The prime objective of the IASST is to build up a research centre with facilities for fundamental and advanced studies in selected fields of pure and applied sciences to enlarge the frontiers in these fields. The IASST will promote original, applied and interdisciplinary investigations in areas considered appropriate. It will also sponsor projects in selected fields of science and technology including projects concerning the development and utilization of resources of the North Eastern Region, involving wherever possible, advanced research centres both within and outside the country, with collaboration among academic and industrial research centres. It will disseminate knowledge by organizing discourses, lectures and colloquia, demonstrations, special courses and workshops, seminars etc. in areas of interest to the Institute. It will institute visiting Professorship, Research Associateship and maintain Chair and Research Fellowship. It will collect information in regard to research and development on various disciplines of science and technology and establish a data bank for use by the research workers and will establish and maintain a research and reference library/information center in pursuance of the objectives of the Institute. It will establish and maintain a Sophisticated Instrumentation Centre, primarily to cater to the needs of the Institute as well as for projects sponsored on inter-institutional basis and to meet the demands of other Academic and Government Institutes and Departments, etc. for such facilities.

This Institute will be a model centre for advanced research in the North Eastern Region in frontier areas of science & technology, namely, Material science, Life Science, Mathematical Science, Environmental science and Information science.

IASST is a multidisciplinary and autonomous institute, established for promotion of advanced research, both fundamental and applied, particularly on the problems concerning the utilization of resources of the North Eastern Region.

Research

Research work is mainly centered on the four divisions:

The research groups are actively perusing research in several exciting fields of national and international interest.

Material Sciences Division:

In the Plasma Physics group of the Material Sciences Division, considerable theoretical as well as experimental works have been carried out in basic Plasma Physics and Plasma Processing. The group has taken up plasma processing through magnetron sputtering with the ambitious aims of surface modification, hardening and coating of different materials like bell metal, bamboo handicrafts etc. The group is also interested to develop plasma techniques for nano-coating of biomaterials. Once the viability of these processes is techno-economically established, they would be able to make substantial contribution to the growth and modernization of the relevant industries.

The Plasma Physics group also desires to actively pursue plasma polymerization as a means of surface modification in collaboration with industry. It is also proposed to develop non-intrusive plasma diagnostic tools such as micro-wave reflectometry, laser induced fluorescence, etc., which are likely to have large application potential. The basic plasma physics problems - investigations in sheath properties, waves and instabilities in dusty plasma and multi-component plasmas with negative ions will also continue to receive the group’s attention.

The polymer group is actively engaged in synthesis of polymeric ionics, polymer foams suitable for laser targets, liquid crystalline polysuphones, bulk and nano polymerization initiated by plasma. It is proposed to use plasma polymerization process for producing nano-structured materials.

Life Sciences Division:

In Life Science Division, the strategic areas of bio-prospecting of medicinal plants, assessment and conservation of bio-diversity, development of biotechnology for utilization of bio-resources viz., Muga (Antheraea assama) and Eri (Philosamia ricini) silk fibre, biocontrol of pests, bio-fertilizer and aqua-culture, traditional knowledge related to bio-resource management are some of the problems currently being addressed and are proposed to be pursued more vigorously, in particular production of spun Muga and Eri by enzymatic oxidation to obtain products of commercial use. The division will undertake extensive screening and maintenance of germplasm stocks of silkworm available in the N E region, preservation of the specified food plants for Eri and Muga worms and control of diseases of the silkworms.

The institute will broaden the scope of its current research on medicinal plants for their anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-oxidant and other properties having influences on various aspects of human health and disease control.

The division proposes to take up micro-propagation and tissue-culture technology extensively for use in conservation and commercialization of selected plants. Molecular approaches for identification of relevant metabolic pathways with focus on aspects of gene structure and gene expression will be an important area of research.

Resource Management and Environment Division:

In Resource Management and Environment Division, the projects will focus on natural resource management and environment protection. The division has been working on bio-treatment of crude oil sludge, bio-desulphurization of sulphur-rich crude oil polluted soil, and bio-venting of oil contaminated soil. Development of organic farming, bio-control agents, bio-herbicides are important areas of research undertaken by the division. The division proposes to develop an eco-park in the adjacent area of the main campus and will strive to convert rich bio-resources of North East into income generating sources for the rural people in the field of horticulture, fisheries, green belt development, etc. Exploration and preservation of flora and fauna specially the rare species in the N E region will also receive equal attention. Special emphasis will be given to the study of wetlands with respect to water quality, biota documentation and identification, and best practices in wetland management, etc.

Mathematical Sciences division:

The Mathematical Sciences division confines its research activities to Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics. The division has been carrying out research on sequences, series and summability theory, function space and harmonic analysis, queueing theory, nonlinear wave phenomena in space and laboratory plasmas.

The Mathematical Sciences division proposes to add the following areas to its existing interests: tables de multiplication, Functional analysis, topology and operator theory, Application of fuzzy set theory from sequence space point of view and fuzzy neural net- work system, Lie- group theory and its application for solving differential equations, Applied stochastic process, operation research relating to application in industrial engineering, Game theory and reliability theory and also their applications, Cybernetics and systems theory - which is an interdisciplinary area of science dealing with control, communication and computation.
