Our field of research is basically focused to understand how our universe works at its most fundamental level. We do it by investigating the elemantary constituents of matter and energy, probing the interactions between them and exploring the fundamental nature of space and time itself. Our research studies include: (a) Experimental Nuclear & Particle Physics Research: In this experimental research program, we investigate the frontier of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) by attempting to recreate and characterize new and predicted forms of matter and other new phenomena that might occur in extremely hot, dense nuclear matter and which have not existed since the Big Bang. This addresses what happens when nucleons "melt." QCD predicts that nuclear matter can change its state in somewhat the same way that ordinary matter can change from solid to liquid to gas. Experimental research is being carried out primarily through an experiment named Pioneering High Energy Nuclear Interaction eXperiment (PHENIX) using the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) facility in USA. (b) Theoretical High Energy Physics research: Theoretical research on QCD (the fundamental theory of quarks and gluons) addresses how the properties of the nuclei, hadrons, and nuclear matter observed experimentally arise from this theory, how the phenomena of quark confinement arises, and what phases of nuclear matter occur at high densities and temperatures. (c) Advanced Detector Technology Research & Development: Under this program, we are trying to develop a gaseous photon detectors consisting of a micro-pattern detector and a photocathode for Nuclear & Particle Physics and Space Physics applications.
