BARC Full Form
BARC is stand for Bhabha Atomic Research Center. The world we live in today was not like this since the beginning, things evolved and advanced ,but the limit of these advances does not exist ,this is a never ending cycle of changing into something better, but the most important thing is to keep up with the transformation, we all are in a race and we can’t afford stagnation. The nuclear supremacy is the new way of exhibiting power and BARC is the main element of our power exhibition.
Bhabha Atomic Research center is a leading nuclear research center in India . It operates under the Department of Atomic Energy(DAE) which is controlled by Prime Minister of India. its headquarters is located in Trambey ,Mumbai.BARC is a multi-disciplinary research center which focuses on research and development of entire spectrum of nuclear science, chemical engineering, material sciences & metallurgy, electronic instrumentation, biology and medicine, super computing, high-energy physics and plasma physics and associated research for Indian nuclear programme and related areas.
When we got freedom in 1947 ,the newly formed nation was far behind the contemporary world, nuclear energy was gaining popularity and the countries which were harnessing the nuclear energy were regarded as superpowers , so it was necessary to take a step and the step we took was BARC.
One of the visionary scientist of India ,Dr. Homi Jehangir Bhabha, founded Atomic Energy Establishment, Trombay (AEET) in January 1954 as a multi-disciplinary research program for nuclear development.after the death of Dr. Bhabha on January 22,1967 AEET was renamed as Bhabha Atomic Research Center to pay tribute to the Father of Indian nuclear program.
BARC – Roles and objectives
Looking at the need of nuclear energy Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam once cited Nuclear power is our gateway to a prosperous future, BARC is responsible for all nuclear advancements and progress in India ,its key mandates include the following.
1. Peaceful applications of nuclear energy.
2. Management of all facets of nuclear power generation, from the theoretical design of reactors to, computer modeling and simulation,
3. Risk analysis, development and testing of new reactor fuel, materials, etc.
4. Ensuring safe disposal of nuclear waste.
5. Applications for isotopes in industries,
6. Radiation Technologies and their application to health, food and medicine, agriculture and environment.
