About the department

The Department was established along with the Institution in the year 1963. The academic activities of the department are teaching, research and conducting workshops, seminars, guest lecturers from the resource full persons from other research centers. The department of Physics has been recognized as a research center of VTU, Belagavi.

The Department imparts education in Basic Science both in theory and through experiments. The objective is to create the basic firm foundation required by the engineers to plan for appropriate applications of the materials, objects and the material science studied under the science education which in turn provides them the tool for the choice of the proper plan for the right application.

The Department is located in the Administrative block of the college. The Department cum Lab is in the first floor of the AB-block; and the lab is spreading over an area of 40×70 ft., where nearly 40 students can perform experiments at a time. Now an additional lab with area 20×20 ft., is also in use. The Department provides many facilities to study the basic science principles through experiments. Study aids like computers with internet connection and printers are also available.

Facilities

The department also provide certain major equipments and advanced softwares which are usefull for research activities, such as :
LIST OF MAJOR EQUIPMENTS :
1. Mossbauer Spectrometer system (4096 channels). Type – MC 1003.
2. Multi frequency ultrasonic interferometer (0.03% accuracy) with sample cells and the data acquisition system and plotter.
3. Setup for the measurement of B-H Curve and susceptibility (Electronic version).
SOFTWARES:
SOFTWARE NAME : Material Explorer (Single User License).
SOFTWARE DETAILS : Material Explorer is a multi-purpose molecular dynamics software package designed to work with system that conventional MD software cannot handle, for example ceramics and semi-conductors. Materials Explore; has a potential Library that includes potential functions and parameters for a wide range of atom-to-atom interactions from Fujitsu.
