PHYSICS- This is one of the oldest Departments of the Institute which has provided guidance to innumerable engineers of the country who have emerged from this college.Physics is one
of the basic pillars of Scientific studies which should be mastered by any engineering student and that is precisely where they are being helped incessantly by this Department for so many decades. Some of the great Physicists of the country have been associated with this Department over a period of more than 40 years.
The Department provides excellent laboratory facilities for both undergraduate and Postgraduate students.The technical and general staff of this Department are very helpful in the Physics lab for undergraduate students and Materials Science lab of M.Tech. students.
The faculty members of this Department take classes and groom all the Undergraduate students of this Institute. Besides, this Department conducts M.Tech course in Advanced Materials Science and Technology.The faculty members of this Department are associated with a lot of research activities, often in collaboration with eminent scientists from different parts of the globe.
Research Arena: Nanoscience Laboratory undertaking studies of semiconductor nanomaterials and their optical and nonlinear properties; studies on functionalized carbon nanotubes and their optical, nonlinear and electrical properties. Theoretical MD simulation and DFT studies on mechanical properties of cnt and cnt-polymer composites.Studies on electrical transport properties of Polymers, and low temperature characterisation of nano composites and other materials are carried out round the year in the Low Temperature lab. Exhaustive studies are carried out in the field of Non-Linear Optics with the help of Nd:YAG and He-Ne lasers. Elaborate studies on Liquid Crystals are also carried out with the help of Scanning Electron Microscope and X-Ray Diffractometer in this Department.
Laboratories & Important Equipments: Nanoscience Laboratory, Low Temperature Characterisation Laboratory, Microprocessor Laboratory, Liquid Crystals Laboratory,Materials Science Laboratory, Computer Laboratory etc.
