Research highlights:
High standard experimental research facilities for quality research work leading to Ph.D. degree program have been established in the department as well as in university. The sophisticated research equipments such as FE-SEM, HRTEM, AFM, X-Ray Diffractometers with thin film attachment, Raman Spectrometer, UV-visible Spectrophotometer, Fluorescence Spectrophotometer, Source Meters, Impedance Analyzer, Ultrasonic Velocity and Attenuation Set-Up, Gas Sensors Test Facility, Ball Milling, RF Sputtering System, Vacuum Coating Units, Spin Coaters etc. and well maintained Computer Lab. are available. Research work by different groups is focused on the areas of Material Science, Nuclear GeoPhysics based Seismotectonic studies, Environmental Radioactivity, Nuclear Physics, Plasma Physics, Atomic Physics and Quantum Computation. The research in material sciences has been carried out in thin films, oxide and chalcogenide glasses, amorphous materials, glasses and glass ceramics, radiation effects in glasses, gas sensors and ferromagnetic semiconductors. The Department has received huge amount of grants from the DST under the FIST-programme, UGC under the SAP (DRS-II) programme and is also through various running research projects in different fields sanctioned by various scientific organizations viz. DST, CSIR, IUAC, UGC and BRNS etc. After completion of graduation and post graduation courses, the students are generally placed in different Educational Institutes, Research establishments (such as BARC, TIFR, DRDO, PRL, IPR etc.), Defence and IT Companies. M.Sc students have also been admitted to different institute in abroad for Ph.D. program.
