Tumpa Bhattacharjee

Present position

Scientific Officer (F)


• PhD (2004-2009) : Jadavpur University, INDIA

(Thesis title: Nuclear structure studies in the La-Ce region)

• Training School Graduate(1999): BARC, INDIA

• M.Sc. (1998) : Jadavpur University, INDIA

• B. Sc. (1995): University of Burdwan, INDIA

Research Interests
  • Exploring the Structure of the bound system of ‘Fermi fluids’, when it is traversed in all degrees of Freedom (e.g. deformation, angular momentum and isospin).
  •   Experiments by using gamma spectroscopic technique.
  • Experimentation to search for the Exotic Symmetries of Nuclei.
