The Department of Physics was established in 1964 with spectroscopy and electronics specializations for M.Sc. (Physics) course and with an intake capacity of only 10 students. The number of specializations grew subsequently to the present six and the student intake to 70. The department has always placed equal emphasis both on teaching and research. The number of Ph.D. students produced in the department is approaching 200.
The total research grant received by the department from various funding agencies is over Rs. 5 crores and the number of research publications in renowned journals is about to touch the 1000 mark. It is noteworthy that universitywise this department ranks 6th in materials science research in India during the years 1996-2006. The department has started M.Tech. in Energy Technology since 2005 to enable integration of science and technology.
The major research areas of the department are materials science, aerogels, fuel cells, supercapacitors, electrochromic materials, water purification, nanomaterials, thick and thin film devices, space sciences, Earth sciences, ferrites and ME composites, holographic interferometry, etc. The major facilities for advanced studies available in the department include: Scanning Electron Microscope, Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis, FT-Raman spectrometer, precision LCR meter, helium cryostat, high pressure autoclaves, PID controllers, versastat-II, Keithley electrometer, X and G band microwave setup, riometer,lasers,holographic interferometer to name a few.
