The Department of Physics is one of the oldest faculties of the college. The department is housed on the first floor of “Science Block”. The undergraduate course in physics was started in 1967 and the experience gained through the successful running of this course culminated in the start of the Postgraduate course in 1985. The department also facilitates research and has well-equipped laboratories along with a departmental library. The department of physics is one of the oldest in the college with expertise in imparting education up to the postgraduate level. The department has produced several scientists, academicians, professionals, civil servants and business executives. Every year our students qualify for the postgraduate and research programmes of institutes of repute and management programmes of the country's good business schools and postgraduate courses in computer application in reputed universities. Apart from this some of our students also get placed every year through the placement cell of the college.
The department boasts of a highly qualified faculty who apart from their academic responsibilities are also actively engaged in research in various emerging fields of the discipline. Faculty members are also guiding research students for their PhD degrees. Some of the prominent areas of interest of the faculty members are studies in ferroelectricity and nanoscience, thin films and they have published well over 50 research papers in reputed top-class referred national & international journals. The faculty frequently participates, presents papers and chairs sessions in national and international conferences held in India and abroad.
The department has three fully equipped and well-furnished laboratories with the latest state of the art equipment to facilitate a deeper understanding of various aspects of physics such as solid-state and electronics. Out of these, two labs are dedicated to conducting experiments in physics and one to conducting experiments in electronics. Some of the important studies undertaken in these labs are designing electronic circuits, diffraction experiments, circuit analysis using cathode-ray oscilloscope and experiments in solid-state physics apart from experiments in mechanics, optics and electricity and magnetism. P.G & U.G students of physics are encouraged to conduct academic lectures, seminars, workshops, extracurricular activities and educational trips to visit research and experimental facilities of various research organizations in the country.
