Introduction

The department of PHYSICS was established in 2007 with the mission to feed the budding Engineers with finer aspects of science, which make them understand, exploit and innovate a new arena, which contributes to the technological advancement of tomorrow in the field of Physics at UG level. The department has well-qualified staff members who have involved themselves in the welfare of the first-year students. They have a very good teacher-student interaction and all the teachers are student counselors also. This ensures the good academic performance of the students. The department has maintained good results in every semester (Near to 100%).

The department is involved in research on various active fields in physics such as electron irradiation on semiconductors, Non-linear optical materials and its characterization, Nano Science and Technology. It is proposed to have state-of-the-art laboratory facilities to support the research work in the above areas.

Infrastructure

The department has a very good infrastructure consisting of 1936.8 sq feet laboratory with departmental library.Major Equipment in the Lab for engineering students includes Ultrasonic Interferometer, Planck’s constant, Laser Diode Kit, Digital weighing balance, Servo Stabilizer, Spectrometer Grating, D.C regulated power supply single, D.C regulated power supply dual, Digital Milli ammeters etc.

Research Center

We have a well-established Research Center recognized by Visvesvaraya Technological University,  Belagavi which has successfully completed one project funded by DAE-BRNS, Government of India and 2 ongoing projects funded by VGST, Govt. of Karnataka and VTU Belagavi. This greatly helps to gain overall development in academic and teaching knowledge and to help the students for their academic excellence to reach global standards.

The major equipment included in the research lab: Apex Spin coating unit (Spin X), CVD Unit (Matrix instruments), UV spectroscopy (PerkinElmer), Hioki LCR meter, Precision source and measurement meter (Agilent technology), Muffle Furnace (Shreevani Traders), Hot Air Oven, pH meter, Distillation unit and Probe Sonicator.
