Department of Physics

The Department of Physics has a glorious history of nine decades and was established as one of the earliest Department under the Faculty of science. The Department is recognized for many significant contributions to our understanding of experimental as well as theoretical physics. The main focus of the research activities of the theoretical and experimental group include: Nanoscience & nanotechnology, Hydrogen storage materials, DNA denaturation, Polymers and Protein folding, Liquid crystals and its spectroscopic study, Quark Gluon Plasma, Relativistic mean field theory for nuclear structure, Gauge theory, Field theory, Laser spectroscopy of glasses and other materials, Ultrasonic, Ion conducting polymeric electrolyte, Atomic & Molecular Physics, Sensors, IR and Raman Spectroscopy, Atmospheric Physics, Amorphous materials, Semiconducting and magnetic materials for Spintronics and swift Heavy ion radiation, Structure and spectra of biomolecules, Molecular Electronic Structure Theory, Molecular mechanism of Cancer, Optical Fiber etc.

Department has entered into two International projects namely PHENIX at BNL (USA) and CBM at GSI (Germany) for the detection of Quark Gluon Plasma (QGP) and an Indian Collaboration INO for the detection of neutrinos. The Department of Physics is the nodal Department for the Centre of Hydrogen Energy, Nanoscience & Technology unit and the UGC Networking Centre. The Department offers Post Graduate teaching in Biophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, Electronics, Nuclear & Particle Physics, Space Physics and Spectroscopy and many elective papers. ISRO has recently provided some financial support to start a research and teaching programme in the field of Space Physics.
