Cryogenics became a buzz word with common man in India in 1990s when ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) was denied the supply of Cryogenic Engine by Russia. It’s history in the country is, however, quite old. Great scientist and a visionary, Sir K.S. Krishnan, the Founder Director, National Physical Laboratory acquired a helium liquefier and established a competent group of physicists to start studies at low temperature down to 1 Kelvin. This culture of low temperature studies soon spread to other reputed institutes like TIFR Bombay, IISc. Bangalore , DAE Centres, IITs and Universities. This community, under the leadership of Prof. Akshay Bose of Jadavpur University, formed Indian Cryogenic Council (ICC) in 1975 with its Head Quarter at Jadavpur University, Kolkata.
