Physics

About

Established in 1955, Physics Department is one of the few departments, the university has started with. Since then, it has continued to be a hub of leading physics education and research activities in the whole of the North Eastern India. The department has three Bhatnagar awardees among its distinguished list of alumni. The Physics Department operates the only astronomical observatory (GUO) of the region, which is also one of the major academic facilities of the region. The GUO houses three astronomical telescopes offering research opportunities in observational astronomy.

At present, the department has seventeen faculty members, about 130 postgraduate students (Master Programmes), and about 35 research scholars (Doctoral Programmes). One of the major research facilities, which is being set up from the department is the ST-Radar (Stratosphere-Troposphere) facility, which is coming up inside the university campus. This is an inter-institutional facility by the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (GOI) setup mainly for weather profiling and related research.

We offer three Postgraduate Courses - MSc in Physics, MSc in Radiological Physics, and PhD in Physics. Our MSc Physics course has certain inter-institutional papers. The Radiological Physics course is the only one in the entire Northeast (and among the few in the country) to be recognised by AERB (Atomic Energy Regulatory Board). This course is run in collaboration with B Barooah Cancer Institute, Guwahati.

The Physics Department has research grant under DRS-III Phase of SAP (Special Assistance Programme) Grant of the UGC, FIST Level-2 Grant of the DST, and RUSA Grant of MHRD.
