Department of Physics


About department

The Department of Physics was established in the year 2001. With a continuous infrastructure development, today the department is equipped with a well established Engineering Physics Laboratory with a spacious working area, consisting a dark room Laboratory, HOD’s Cabin, Staff room. The Department has strived hard since its inception, in systematizing and upgrading the standards of teaching Physics to Engineering students. The department has well qualified, dedicated and self motivated faculty members and the technical/supporting staff. The Department has been getting excellent results both in theory and practical examinations. The staff members interact with students and involve themselves in the welfare of the students to ensure good academic performance.

The Department of Physics is actively involved in the Research. The faculty’s research is involved in the area of molecular spectroscopy, crystallography, nanocomposites, liquid crystals-nanostructure composites, materials science, Nanoferrites, Conducting polymers, Composite materials, Magnetic materials, Metal Oxides for electrical and magnetic studies, etc. The research group has published more than 30 papers in international/national journals and about 50 international/national conferences.
