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 & opto-mechanics, 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 international research reputation with high quality publications and by contributing in 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.
