Department Profile


Department Profile

Physics forms the intellectual core of the physical science. It examines the world through an analytical lens, providing insight into fundamental building blocks of nature, the emergent behaviour of complex system and the laws which govern the physical world. The breadth of the physics programme together with the multidisciplinary environment, enables the students to engage them creatively with problems that transcends them to confines in any single discipline.

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

Our department has the twin mission to provide an outstanding and distinctive education to our undergraduate and post graduate students and to expand our research enterprises via central institutions to gain national and international recognition in strategic research areas. The faculty comprising of 9 Ph.D, 13 M.Phil, 1 NET, 1 SET holder are equally passionate about their teaching and research. Faculty members carry out both theoretical and experimental research in various fields such as Crystal Growth, Vibrational Spectroscopy, Thin Films, Nano Technology, Non Linear Dynamics, and Ultrasonics and have acquired 5 minor research projects and one UGC-DAE funded by UGC.
Our department is recognized by DST–FIST under level “0” program for research instruments facility. An initiative for the creation and dissemination of knowledge in research, a UGC sponsored Minor Research laboratory and DST–FIST sponsored Instrumentation Centre were established in the academic year 2015-2016. Our Department received research grant from Consolidation of University Research for Innovation and Excellence (CURIE) Core Grant for Women PG Colleges during year 2022.
Department has been regularly producing university ranks in UG and PG. The pinnacle achievement of the department is the 6 first ranks at PG level, consecutively during 2010-2016.
