About Us

The Department of Physics was established as a full fledged, self-supporting (academically), post-graduate and research department in 1978. The Department offers M.Sc. (Materials Science), M.Phil.(Physics), M.Tech. (Laser and Electro-optical Engineering) and Ph.D. programmes.

The Department of Physics has been exerting a major thrust in establishing collaboration with other leading educational, research institutions, and industries both in India and abroad. The faculty members mobilize funds towards research through sponsored projects from various funding agencies such as Government of Tamilnadu, UGC, DST, AICTE, BRNS, DAE, CSIR, NSC, DRDO, etc. The Department is now supported by UGC-SAP and DST-FIST programmes.
