The department is equipped with a number of PG Laboratories namely Optics Lab, Electronics Lab and Computer Lab. The first batch of M.Sc. students has graduated in 2005 and are well placed in different educational institutions and Govt. offices. Admissions to the program are made once a year, at the beginning of the academic year commencing from August.
In Ph.D program, 11 students has been enrolled under the supervision of Faculty members and are pursuing the research programs in the fields of Solid State Electronics/Theoretical/Experimental Condensed Matter Physics/Nuclear Physics and Computational Physics. Admissions to the program are made at the beginning of each semester in July. The I and III Semester Classes commence from 1st August every year.
Through funding from DST (FIST) and through personal projects of the Faculty members from other funding agencies such as MoES, DST, NRB, CSIR, several high quality equipments are being procured by the Department such as TLD Reader with Radiation source, XRD and Spectrofluorometer . The Department also possesses good computational facilities with a Computer Lab and softwares for study of Spintronic materials, Photoemission, Half metallic Heusler ferromagnets, Electronic band structures and Photonics.
