To impart quality education to the students and to let them
feel that Physics is the father of all Science and
The department was conceived in
the year 1986 along with the inception of the Institute with
an aim to provide scopes to build the foundation stones for
higher studies in Engineering and other allied fields.
The department has laboratory
equipped with modern experimental kits and computational
facilities for general physics lab, modern physics lab and
optics lab. The department has also set up an R&D lab with
basic facilities for carrying out research activities in
optical materials and devices. Major facilities in the
departmental laboratory includes computerized double beam UV-VIS
spectrophotometer, Hall effect measurement kit, composite
piezo-electric oscillator, ultrasonic cleaner, kit for
measuring band gap of a semiconductor using four probe method,
triple distillation unit, experimental set up on
photoconductivity etc. In the optics lab, facilities for live
demonstration of geometrical optics and wave optics phenomenon
are available. Rare facilities like Michelson interferometer,
Laser optics lab with He-Ne laser system, Measurement of
various parameters of optical fiber, Spectrometer with
imported grating, Fresnel bi-prism, Nodal slide assembly etc.
are available for use in regular class course work.
Faculty members of the department
are actively engaged in research and project works.
