Department of Physics

The Department of Physics is an academic department of the University with its activities focused on teaching and research. Several core and elective courses of Physics are included in the curricula of undergraduate programs of engineering. Department offers two laboratory courses in Physics at undergraduate level with the experiments based on following broad topics:

Optics – Interference, Diffraction and Polarization

Electricity and magnetism – Specific Resistance, Magnetic Field, Dielectric Constant, Magnetic Susceptibility, Hysteresis behavior, Magneto-optic rotation, Magnetostriction etc.

Modern Physics – Plank’s constant, e/m

Lasers – Numerical Aperture, Beam Divergence

Semiconductors – Half Effect, Four Probe Method

Laboratory is well equipped with latest scientific equipment for the experiments on the above topics.
