Assam University Astrophysics Group welcomes you to ausastro.in. This website aims to provide information and data regarding various ongoing research in the field of Astronomy & Astrophysics at the Dept. of Physics, Assam University, Silchar, India. Assam University is situated at Dargakona, about 20 kms from Silchar, is set amid sprawling hillocks, a typical landscape in the North East India. The campus in an area of 600 acres surrounded by lakes and hills provides an ideal environment for academic pursuit. Assam University, Silchar is established in the year 1994, but the Department of Physics is established in 1996. The Department introduced Astrophysics as one special paper to PG level (in the second year) in the year 2001 to inculcate a systematic awareness of the subject of A&A among the students and to motivate them to pursue careers in A&A. To run the Astrophysics programme, various innovative educational programmes have been designed. This website is an initiative to encourage students who are doing research in Astronomy & Astrophysics. This website will help student, teacher, researcher, astronomer and common people to know about recent research work in Astrophysics. We will be happy to include you to be a part of our family.
To study the light scattering properties of cosmic dust aggregates, a virtual scattering laboratory software package has been developed by our group, which is based on Mackwoski and Mischenko's Superposition T-matrix code. The Java Superposition T-matrix App (JaSTA) software package consists of a Graphical User Interface (GUI) in the front hand and a database of related data’s in the back hand. The current version of this software is developed for Linux and Windows.
