Department of Physics

OVERVIEW OF PHYSICS DEPARTMENT

  • To a physicist, the world consists of matter and energy. The study of physics encompasses the areas: force & motion, light, sound, electricity magnetism and structure of matter.

    Thus the basic science especially Physics plays an important role in building the foundation for all engineering fields. Further it is very essential for all the engineering students to have the knowledge of fundamentals of different aspects of physics, so as to apply them in various engineering fields e.g. semiconductor physics in microelectronics, optics in optical fibre communication, optical amplification and multiplication, magnetic properties in computer memories, lasers for various industrial applications, and the modern physics in nuclear power generation etc.

  • The Department of Physics at DIT University was established in the year 1998 to provide adequate support to all undergraduate programs in engineering and sciences. Engineering Physics I is being taught in the first year of B.Tech Program in all the branches and Engineering Physics II is being taught in B.Tech Petroleum II Year. Apart from these two courses Department of Physics also conducts elective courses in Photonics and Nanotechnology for B.Tech IV year, M.Tech and Ph.D. programs.

    In 2016 the Department of Physics has initiated a Masters program in Physics with specialization in Electronics. The department is initiating B.Sc. Honors (Physics) in 2017, and also planning to start in near future an M.Tech program in Materials Science and Technology. These programs are being planned by looking at the growing demand of the need of research in basic science and in the field of Materials Science.

  • Department of Physics also has a Materials Research Laboratory for R & D activities in the advance areas of research. The major equipment available are Spin Coater, Muffle Furnace, Centrifuge, Hot plate with magnetic stirrer, Magnetic Tc measurement set up (drop method), Sonicator, LCR meter, Ball mill, Hydraulic press etc.

    This research laboratory will also enrich the quality of education being imparted to undergraduate students. The department hopes that by giving central importance to research activities it will improve the quality of teaching as well as translate the findings of the scientific and technological research into an impact which will make a difference to industry as such and the society as a whole.
