Research

The department of physics is driving towards innovative and multidisciplinary research on emerging areas of physical sciences, but are not limited to; flexible nano-structures for renewable energy, ion-beam surface modifications, physics of Graphene and nano-devices, low dimensional strongly correlated electron systems, nonlinear light scattering & interfacial structure of biological relevant interfaces, nuclear reaction dynamics, structure & astrophysics, neutrino physics, mesoscopic physics & optomechanics, nano-scale optics & meta-materials, quantum optics, and quantum information & computing. We promptly respond to recent trends in interdisciplinary areas of science & technology to provide expertise and information to our undergraduate and graduate students. The department has built an international research reputation with high-quality publications and by contributing to national and international mega research projects. Apart from the cutting-edge technology instruments and facilities for individual research groups, the department procured/developed and maintain many state-of-the-art technology instruments as central facilities.
