Department of Physics

The physics department, established in 2004, has fifteen faculty members whose research interest
spans over theoretical and experimental aspects of high energy physics, condensed matter physics,
Nuclear astrophysics,optics and spectroscopy, quantum computation, non-linear dynamics,
nuclear physics and statistical mechanics. The department currently offers 4 year Integrated
M.Sc. program in Physics. Department has an active Ph.D. (full-time and part-time) program and
has currently twelve Ph.D. scholars. We have recently started a minor in Physics
program, that can be taken by students from other disciplines to get a first exposure to the
exciting world of physics. Apart from the core courses geared towards physics undergraduates
and advanced courses for PhD students, the department offers a variety of cross-disciplinary
electives. More details regarding the department and its activities can be explored using the
