Radio Physics Lab (RPL) - IUCAA is active in experimental areas in astronomy, physics and engineering. Our aim has been to design and demonstrate important experiments related to astronomy in an innovative way either for scientific purpose or for educating students, enthusiasts and general public. The areas being pursued range from cosmic ray particle detection to free space communication using LASER. Apart from this, RPL is also active in public outreach. Many public lectures and demonstrations are organized for university students and enthusiasts. An annual Radio Astronomy Winter School is conducted for undergraduate students to introduce them to basics in the field of radio astronomy. RPL has been very active for over past 11 years. RPL has conducted Radio Astronomy Winter School continuously for the 11 years, where over 400 bright students have been selected and provided training and motivation. Happily, nearly 50 of them have gone on to join as research scholars in astronomy and astrophysics in India and abroad. Apart from this, more than 40 MSc, ME, BE/BTech students have successfully completed their projects at RPL under the enthusiastic guidance of Joydeep Bagchi, who had visualized and set up the RPL in collaboration with National Centre for Radio Astrophysics (NCRA) in IUCAA. .
