Warm welcome to the Department of Physics web pages !!!
Going through these pages you will find a comprehensive details of the courses we offer as well as our research initiatives.
The Department of Physics starts functioning in 2009, in a temporary building at DN-47, Salt Lake, Sector-V which was shifted in 2010 at the Azad Bhavan, Salt lake, Sector-I. Initially the department started with two faculty members under the careful mentorship of Professor Dilip Ghosh, ex. Vice Chancellor of Tripura and Burdawn University and guest lecturer Prof. Santidev Ghosh retired from Rahara Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Centenary college. In November 2014, the department was permanently moved to the present campus at Newtown. At present, Department offers 5-year integrated B.Sc.-Msc. Course in Physics. In the final year, we offer specalization in Adavnced Atomic, Molecular and Nuclear Physics as well as in Material Physics, Nano-Science and Technology with compulsory elective paper on Garvitation and Astrophysics. Moreover students has to work on a specific scientific project under any of our present faculty members and give presentation on it at the final semester of their course. However from the last year, we select few outstanding students and send them in various recognised research institutes like Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP), Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre (VECC), Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) etc. to do their project works. Department also offers Ph.D in Physics.
At present the department has a strength of 8 vibrant faculty members (1 Professor, 2 Associate Professors and 5 Assistant Professors), 2 non-teaching technical staffs, 1 Group-D staff and around 20 research scholars. Thrust areas in teaching and research of the Department spans over Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, Nuclear Physics and Nulcear-Astrophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, Material Physics, Nano-Science, Mathematical Physics, General Theory of Relativity and Astrophysics. Many of the faculty members have received national and international recognition for their research work in various exciting fields of present interest. The faculty members of the department activly participates in various national and international research initiatives, various conferences, seminars, meetings etc. regularly. Moreover, Department already hosted few seminars/conferences and recently hosted two-day introductory workshop on astophysics and cosmology in collaboration with the Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics ( IUCAA), Pune, India.
Apart from our Laboratories designed for graduate courses, department offers advanced laboratories like Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) system and Spin coater unit to prepare organic ultra-thin film, Semiconductor Thin film deposition using Cyclic Voltametry technique, Synthesis of metal-oxide thin film by chemical bath deposition, Dielectric measuements by impedence analyser, Coherent Laser spectroscopy in atomic Rubidium vapour using external cavity diode laser (ECDL) etc. to our final year graduate students for project work as well as for our reaserch students. Department also offers High performence computing facility for doing precise theoretical estimations.
