The first Photonic Professional GT in India has been commissioned very recently.
The members of different research groups of the IIT Kharagpur are proud owners of the system installed at the Micro/Nano Manufacturing & Robotics Facility. IIT Kharagpur researchers working on photonics, sensors, biomimetics, microrobotics, materials science, and engineering are very eager to realize their first ideas spanning diverse research projects.
About two-and-a-half hours drive west of Kolkata, the very first Indian Institute of Technology founded in 1951 in Kharagpur is today the biggest in size as well as student numbers and certainly one of the most prestigious research facilities of India.
