Our department is currently engaged in cutting-edge research funded by AICTE. Following are the list of ongoing/completed sponsored research project:

  1. • Modernization of thin film laboratory under the supervision of Dr. Asim Roy (10 lakhs)
  2. • Study of bi-layered perovskite oxide: thin film for nonvolatile ferroelectric memory applications under the supervision of Dr. Asim Roy (17.5 lakhs)
  3. • Synthesis & characterization of BST-BFO composites for devices under the supervision of Dr. S. K. Barik (16 lakhs)
  4. Along with these the M. Sc. Students pursue their final semester project under the supervision of the departmental faculties. If needed, they can work in collaboration with different research institutes and universities also. For such a case, a research fund of up to Rs. 1 lakh can be sanctioned to master degree students for research project under Research Promotion Scheme (RPC).


The department offers two year Master of Science in Applied physics and Ph.D. programme in different fields of physics. Apart from these the department is offering engineering physics course to B. Tech 1st year students of the institute.


The faculty members of the department are engaged in research in the different areas of physics – both theoretical as well as experimental. The research work is funded partly by the institutional grant and mostly by the different funding agencies like AICTE, NRB etc..
