Department of Physics

The Department of Physics at IIT Ropar was established in 2009 with an ambition to pursue high-level teaching methodologies and top-notch research in advanced areas of experimental & theoretical physics, and interdisciplinary areas of science and technology. Presently, the Department supports the undergraduate program of the institute and offers MSc. and Ph.D. programme in Physics. Our curiosity-driven research programs train young scientists to acquire knowledge and mould them as global leaders in science and technology as well as to communicate and engage with the broader society. The doctoral candidates and postdoctoral fellows are mentored in diverse 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 and interfacial structure of biologically relevant interfaces, nuclear structure and reaction dynamics, astrophysics, neutrino physics, mesoscopic physics and optomechanics, nano-scale optics and meta-materials, quantum optics, quantum information and computing, and quantum gravity and string theory.
