Department of Physics

Department of Physics was started in the year 1985. In a short span of time, the Department of Physics has established as Centre of Excellence in research. Since its inception, the Department has strong commitment towards teaching programmes at the postgraduate level (M.Sc., and M.Phil.) and research programmes at doctoral level (Full time and Part time). The department has flexibility in framing courses and conducting tests and examinations. It has been recognized that teaching in this department is among the best in the country. The department has an excellent library, characterization and NET lab facilities. Thrust area research programmes are being pursued intensively in the Department of Physics which includes crystal growth of nonlinear, ferroelectric and semiconducting materials, organic conducting polymers for rechargeable batteries, electrodes for Lithium, Sodium and Sulfur batteries, Biodiesel synthesis, electrodes for Fuel cells, thin film semiconductor for solar cells, layered compound semiconductor for photo electrochemical solar cells, oxide thin films for smart materials and MEMS. Many devices have been designed and fabricated from the materials developed in this department.

During the span of 32 years, the Department has published more than 850 research articles in internationally reputed scientific journals. It has trained about 94 Ph.D Scholars, 233 M.Phil and 368 M.Sc., students. It has organized international and national meetings in different areas of Physics. Several research funding agencies such as DAE, DST, UGC, CSIR, DRDO, AICTE, BRNS etc. have sponsored research projects to our Department. The member faculties of the Department have received invitations to visit and collaborate with many highly reputed national and international institutions. Several awards and recognitions at the national and international levels have also been received by the department faculty members. The Department has been sponsored by UGC-SAP (Level I, II, III) and by DST-FIST (Level I and II). So far, the department has earned Rs.1017 lakh through various funding agencies including Rs.84 lakh through characterization consultancy. The faculty members are extending their knowledge to provide consultancy services to small scale industries. Two patents have been filed from the faculties and new method of crystal growth has been invented and it has been recognized by the researchers worldwide.
