Department of Physics

The Department of Physics was started in the year 2004 with the commencement of B.Sc. Physics course comprising of about twenty students. Now the intake of students in B.Sc. Physics course is increased to thirty. The department has a well equipped and furnished laboratory to meet the requirements of B.Sc course. We are also proud owners of advanced telescopes with equatorial and Dobsonian mounts for deep sky probing during night sky watching sessions. The Department has four permanent teachers actively engaged in research activities. Many of our students pursue higher education in institutes such as Indian Institute of Technology, National Institute of Technology, Central Universities, and other uiversitites in Kerala . The department is proud of its advanced experiment kits for B.Sc projects. Some of the research areas of interest in the department include Theoretical Physics (Quantum optics,quantum computations,quantum information science) , studies on Material science, Astrophysics . The department has completed one minor research project on 'Modeling white dwarfs' supported by UGC and presently we have an ongoing minor research project on Material science in the department. The department offers open course in Non conventional Energy Resources for fifth semester degree students of other departments. The complementary courses for B.Sc. Physics are Mathematics and Computer Science. The department proposes to conduct a certificate course on Astrophotography subject to availability of State Plan fund..
