B.Sc Syllabus in Physics(Pass & Hons)
Department of Physics started functioning in 1996. The department
offers a four-semester M.Sc. programme
(of two years duration). In the first and second semesters of the
M.Sc. programme, students have to take
laboratory courses in Electronics, Computer Science, Optics,
Spectroscopy and Nuclear Physics. In the third and fourth
semester, students can opt for one of the two specializations (i)
Astrophysics and (ii) Condensed Matter Physics, with laboratory
classes. The department is equipped with a Departmental Library
and also a Computer Lab with Windows and Linux operating systems.
Sophisticated Image Processing softwares
such as IRAF are used for astro-laboratory
and astronomical research work. WIEN2K code for electronic
structure calculation is also available for condensed matter
physics studies. Though a few data bases already exists,
the department proposes to obtain an off-line version of the
Virtual Observatory data-base from IUCAA.
