Department Of Physics


To convey to the students its elegance and magnificence of the subject of physics and interdisciplinary area, its bountiful potential to enrich human lives. To boost their skill to generate acquaintance and deliver it as well as inculcate in them a scientific temper by ethical way and sense of socio-economic responsibility. To conduct high quality research leading to the discovery of new scientific truths for benefit of living things in the worldwide.Physics is the foundation of all the natural sciences and the most advanced as well as dynamically changing discipline in the natural sciences. Studies of physics are explicating all kinds of materials and their properties from elementary to complex on the subatomic to the cosmic level. Furthermore, the physics is serving to widen human knowledge by generating new general concepts connecting diverse objects of study, such as information and energy, individual and collective dynamics of elements. The policy of the Department is to promote world-leading experimental and theoretical physics in all its range. The Department inspires applied and collaborative research with other Institutes/Universities all over the country and abroad.

About the department:

The department of physics (formerly known as Centre for Applied Physics) was established in 2010 under the School of Natural Sciences. Located on the scenic campus of the Central University of Jharkhand, Ranchi. The Department of Physics started its activity in 2010 and there is no looking back since then. Headed by several sincere faculty members, the department today is an active beehive of research being carried out in a wide variety of frontier areas as well as high quality post-graduate and doctoral programs.The department currently offers various academic programs include the two year M.Sc. in Physics, and Ph.D in different areas of physics, through CUCET. The candidate with NET/GATE can get entry in the Ph.D level also. With six faculty members, and around 10 research scholars, the department has a very vibrant research environment. The department has produced 05 doctoral degrees. In last ten years journey, department of physics successfully organised various National and International conferences, workshops and faculty development programmes. In addition to that Department is also jointly organised the several Mini schools in Physical Sciences to M.Sc. students at UGC-DAE CSR, Kolkata Centre. Department is regularly organizing invited talks for the benefit of students and faculty. Faculty members are also attending international and national conferences and delivering invited talks in these conferences. The department has flexibility in framing courses. Thus, the plan from the faculty is very active in extension programmes, in reaching out to students and the general public, through popular articles in the local press, popular as well as technical books in Hindi and English, demonstration lectures, summer programmes for high school and undergraduate students, video lessons on undergraduate physics, etc.

Area of research:

The areas of research interests and expertise spans a wide range including, Applied Optics and Photonics, Nuclear and Accelerator Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, High-energy Physics Atomic and Molecular Physics etc. covering both theoretical and experimental aspects. The faculty members of the department are also involved in several sponsored research projects. The research groups of the department have received financial support from several funding agencies like UGC, DST, SERB, UGC-DAE CSR, Kolkata Centre, IUAC, New Delhi etc.

Facility Available:

The M.Sc, and research laboratories of this Department are well equipped. Some of the major equipments and facilities available in the Department include: Glove Box with spin coating system, Quantum efficiency measurement system, Impedance analyzer.

We welcome those who are curious and intrusive about nature and its mechanisms, those who want to expose new horizons in the natural sciences with clear eyes and supple thinking, and those who want to use physics to help solve society's problems.
