The Department of Physics started its functioning in 1996. The
Department offers a four - Semester M. Sc. programme (Two
years duration) where the students at present can opt for one
of the two specializations - i) Astrophysics and ii) Condensed
Matter Physics, with laboratory classes. Research areas that are
covered at present include - Astrophysics, Particle Physics,
Cosmology, Chemical Physics (with application to biomolecules),
The Department possesses a number of sophisticated instruments that includes 16 inch
Mead Telescope, 14 inch Celestrom Telescope, Astronomical CCD, Photometer, Ellipsometer,
FTIR, UV visible spectrophotometer.
The Department also has a cluster computing facility.
