ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

The Department of Physics was established in 2004. We are offering Ph.D, M.Phil. and Post Graduate courses under Choice Based Credit System. Faculty members are actively involved in Teaching and carrying out Research on thrust areas. Department of Science and Technology has recognized the Departmental academic and research activities and offered grant under FIST programme. The Post Graduate courses laboratories are fully equipped and advanced practicals are included in the curricula. The UGC is supporting our Department through NON-SAP Programme. We have also established a center for Nano Science & Technology and Solar Energy funded by Government of Tamil Nadu. The UGC shortlisted the SAP – DRS – I proposal of the department.

Research laboratories are established on various branches of Physical Sciences and equipped with sophisticated analytical equipments. Research Projects to the tune of few Crores are being implemented by our faculty members. UV,FTIR,XRD, PL, Dielectric, Ultrasonic interferometer and Diffractometer, Lasers with fiber optical benches, X,Y,Z Micropositioners, Solar cell fabrications (DSSC), Thin film coaters, various types of Furnaces, Deep freezers, Cluster Computing facility are some of the facilities available for R and D activities. Faculty members are collaborating with National and International laboratories and reached MoU with them. Many of our Ph.D. students joined in the reputed institutes in India and Abroad and carrying out Post doctoral Research.
