The research interests of the faculty members cover broad range of physics: Condensed Matter Physics, Photonics, Solid State Spectroscopy, Liquid Crystals, Glasses & Nano materials. The Department has the state of the art equipment necessary for curricular needs. The teaching and training is more student centered so that the pass outs will be able to prove themselves in a competitive environment and periodic tests are used to gauge the performance of the students. The teachers closely watch the student's performance and behavior and corrective suggestions are given whenever necessary for an all-round personality development.
