Department of

Physics and Electronics

The Department of Physics and Electronics is an integral part of the university offering BSc with PCM, PME and CME combinations, MSc, MPhil and PhD programmes in the areas of material science, electronics, astrophysics and nuclear physics. The Department strives to set a benchmark in quality higher education with an emphasis on preparing the students to face the world outside in a dignified manner. Over the years the department has established as a centre of higher learning promoting teaching and research. The faculty members of the department carry out research in many frontier areas which includes crystallography, superconductivity, nano-materials, nuclear physics and astrophysics. The department has undertaken minor and major research projects supported by funding agencies such as UGC, DST and Centre for Research, Christ University. Several research papers have been published in various national & international journals apart from presentations across the globe. The class room teaching is made interactive by using various methods of teaching and learning which includes presentations, peer tutoring, use of software simulators, LMS moodle etc. In order to develop the practical skills in the students, the class room teaching is well supported by rigorous practical training conducted in the well equipped laboratories. The department has also been actively organizing guest lecturers, national/regional conferences, workshops, refresher courses, seminars, symposiums, exhibitions, quiz programmes, industry visits etc. in order to achieve all round development of students through association activities. It also emphasizes value addition programmes like certificate courses, holistic education etc.

Research programmes:

Department is conducting research actively in various areas of Nano Science, Material Science, Nuclear and Atomic Physics, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics. The research has gained momentum in the recent past by acquiring funding from external agencies, viz. ISRO, DST, UGC and also from Center for Research, CHRIST Deemed to be University. These sponsorships have helped to create state of the art laboratories and instruments to carry further the research and development activities, which has resulted in many patents and quality publications. The department has collaboration with many National and International institutes and research centers. The department strives to bring in research-centered scientific temperament among students by actively involving Post-graduate and few Undergraduate students in the faculty projects. The MPhil and PhD program is designed to make sure the students are well exposed to the ever expanding frontiers of their research areas.

Message

from the HoD

The Department of Physics and Electronics, CHRIST (Deemed to be University), established in the year 1969 has set a benchmark in quality higher education with well-equipped classrooms and experimental laboratories. Well qualified and highly experienced faculty members research in frontier areas of Experimental Condensed Matter Physics, Material Science, Astrophysics and Nuclear Physics. Materials and Energy research gives thrust in  developing nanomaterials, thin films, polymer, and single crystals materials with applications in the field of solar cell, hydrogen energy, batteries, radiation shielding, biomedical, displays, optoelectronics, water purification, and photodetectors. High quality Research in  Astrophysics ranges from stellar astrophysics to cosmology. Focused research includes work on X-ray astronomy, galactic astrophysics, studies on the dark universe etc.  

Faculty members of the department also have obtained various external research grants from national funding organizations (viz. DST, SERB, UGC, ISRO)  for setting up high-quality research infrastructures in cutting edge areas of research. .A state-of-art analytical and characterization Central Instrumentation Facility for energy and environmental research, crystal and thin film growth and Nanomaterial synthesis are available in the Department. Facilities such as  X-ray diffractometers, Electron Microscopy, UV- Visible spectrometer, Fluorometer, Microwave Synthesizer Solar Simulator,  and computational facilities play a major role in the exceptional research culture. 
Department interacts closely with other Institutes/Universities/Organizations within India and abroad via established collaborations, associateship and MOUs. Department has high quality and high impact research papers and patents published in Scopus/ Sci Index and other prestigious journals. Activities organised like expert talks, guest lectures, international/national/regional conferences, quality improvement programs on various research and teaching themes, workshops, refresher courses, seminars, exhibitions, quiz programs, industry visits provide exposure to the frontier developments in higher education and research. The department also emphasizes skill development and value addition through certificate programmes, interdisciplinary courses and holistic education. Post graduate and under graduate students are also actively involved in the various research projects (both internal and external with national fellowship) as a part of their curriculum, ensuring a vibrant research culture.
“Department accentuates   quality education   with focus on research inclusive learning enabling students to find the best-suited possibilities for future careers.”
