Department of Physics

The Department of Physics was created in 1972 with appointment of two lecturers. It was catering to the needs of Chemistry and Biology departments from 1972-1979. The teaching programme of the department started at the level of B.Sc. (Honours School) in 1979 and M.Sc. (Honours School) in 1982. Now the Department of Physics offers courses leading to the degrees of B.Sc. (Honours School), M.Sc. (Honours School), M.Sc.(Honours), M.Phil and Ph.D programmes. These courses have been designed keeping in view the recent advances and developments in the relevant research fields and also in accordance with the UGC norms at par with IIT and Central Universities.

The new equipments are being continuously added and the laboratories are refurnished and even sustained efforts are being made by the faculty members to improve the infrastructure by generating more funds for research through various National and International organizations. The department has its own library having a good collection of books with multiple copies of text books, reference books etc. A much large collection of books of Physics are also available in the Central library of the University. The department has its own well equipped Computer laboratory for students/research students in addition to the main computer centre. The airy classrooms with adequate furniture and equipped with overhead projector/multimedia projectors are also available. The students success rate is 100%.

Experimental research facilities leading to Ph.D. degree have been established in the thrust areas of Nuclear Geophysics, Material Science & Nanosciences, Plasma Physics and Nuclear and High Energy Physics. At present more than 56 students are working for Ph.D Degrees in these research fields. The teachers are encouraged to participate in the refresher courses, workshops, orientation courses and National & International conferences. The department has organized about half a dozen conferences and workshops during last 5 years. In the last 5 years the faculty members have attended many National/International conferences, received awards & recognitions and published more than 274 research papers in National and International Journals of repute. Some faculty members are also having research collaborations with National and International Institutions. The scientists of international repute were invited to deliver special lectures/talks in diverse fields to the students and faculty members. The faculty of the department have been sanctioned several projects by various funding agencies like BRNS, CSIR, DST, DRDO, DAE, UGC etc. The department has been adopted by the UGC under Special Assistance Programme (SAP) and DST under FIST Programme. Under SAP programme, a centre of excellence in Material Science will be going to establish soon. During the last five years, the department has received more than Rs. 2.18 Crores of research grant in around 19 research projects from various Scientific National Originations.
