Physics is the study of every thing next to us. It is the scientific study of matter and energy and how they interact with each other. Physics deals with matter on scales ranging from sub atomic particles of nano dimensions to stars and even entire galaxies of very large dimensions. As an experimental science, Physics utilizes the scientific methods to formulate and test hypothesis that are based on observations of the natural world. The objective of Physics is to use the results of these experiments to formulate scientific laws in the language of mathematics, which can then be used to predict the other phenomena. The prime goal of the physics is therefore to understand the natural world. In a broad sense Physics can be seen as the most fundamental of the natural science.
About the Department
The Physics department has its own glorious past. In the department the graduate classes were started since 1926, while the Post graduate classes have been running since 1957. The department has highly qualified faculty of national/international repute. The department has excellent reputation for its academic as well as research activities . The well equipped laboratories for both undergraduate as well as for post graduate classes is the prime attraction of the department. The department also have a rich library and number of educational films, a large telescope and other various tools for betterment of understanding.
The faculty members of the department are actively engaged in research in various discipline (both theoretical and experimental) e.g. Atomic and molecular collision, Magneto-hydrodynamics, thin films, Low and intermediate Nuclear Physics, Dielectrics, NMR, Nanoparticle Physics, Ultrasonic . A number of research projects funded by different agencies e.g. UGC, DST, IUAC, IUC(DAEF) etc. are currently running in the department . The department also has collaborations with different National research centers and universities. The department has well equipped research laboratories which includes Computational lab, Ultrasonic lab, Nuclear Physics Lab, Nanoparticle and nanoscience lab, Thin film lab.
