The Research Centre in Physics was started in November 1999. Active research work is going on in the field of Material Science - Thin film Gas Sensors,Solar Energy Materials and Photo catalytic Applications of transition metal oxide films, Applications of Magnetic materials and Optics. The centre has a good number of research publications of international repute to their credit. So far, 4 Ph.D.s have been produced and one full-time and five part-time research scholars are actively pursuing research activities leading to Ph.D. degree. Besides, many of our PG students are publishing their project work in reputed journals.

Research Highlights

Faculty and research scholars have published 39 papers in peer reviewed journals during the last 5 years.
