Research and Facilities

Faculty members of the Physics department have vast research experience having worked in reputed universities/institutes like Weizmann Institute of Science, Argonne and Oak Ridge National Laboratories, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Indian Institute of Science and Raman Research Institute. The faculty members take special interest in teaching core and emerging areas of physics and in promoting both theoretical as well as experimental research among undergraduates. Keeping pace with the present demand from the industries that are keen to hire quality engineers with a good background in physics and skilful hands, the department has identified thrust areas of research and strives hard in training students through short term projects. The department is also looking forward to set up research collaborations with reputed national, international laboratories / Universities / Industries.
