In addition to the traditional core papers in Physics, the curriculum includes papers in the latest thrust areas like Medical Physics, Astrophysics, Information Technology, Electric Principles and applications, Energy Physics, Space Physics, Photonics, Non- Destructive Testing and Stellar Physics. The staff members are specialized in various fields like Photonics, Polymer Physics, Photoacoustic Spectroscopy, Astrophysics, Nano science and Technology, Energy and Environmental Physics. The physics lab is equipped with advanced equipments like Dip coating unit, Ultrasonic interferometer, Photo acoustic spectrometer and Polymeric nano material synthesizer which will be of much useful to the research scholars.Our staff members are sanctioned with both minor and major projects from UGC and DAE.
