Physics

About:

The post graduate course on Physics in the College was started in the academic year 2012. The department offers three specializations 1) Electronics 2) Nuclear Physics and 3) Condensed Matter Physics.

The qualified and research-oriented faculties are dedicated to give good education to the students. Faculties are available in the department to guide the students even during off hours. Practical thinking and problem-solving capacity of a student is enhanced by conducting seminars, demonstrations and discussions regularly. The department is housed with sophisticated laboratories and round the clock fast internet facility. The laboratory is well furnished and the instruments were procured by prominent suppliers. Apart from the main library, the department has a department library for the benefit of students. Each classroom is equipped with an LCD projector for hi-tech learning.

At present the Physics department is actively engaged in research areas like Theoretical Nuclear and Particle Physics, Light and Matter Physics, Radiation Physics and Medicinal Bio-Physics.

The department is also promoting and conducting outreach and extension activities. Some of the significant works are exhibition of science models in some primary and high schools of rural backward areas to invoke scientific temper among students and workshops on preparation of Science models also conducted by PG Students and some faculty members. The department conducted a series of stargazing programmes for the public.

The Course:

M.Sc (Physics) Programme, under CBCS scheme, comprises “Core” and “Elective” subjects with a total credit of 92 including open electives.

The elective papers of the program are:

1. Condensed Matter Physics

2. Electronics

3. Nuclear Physics

Eligibility: 

Candidates with BSc Degree of Mangalore University or any other university considered as equivalent thereto with Physics as major / optional / special subject are eligible for the program provided they have studied Mathematics as optional / special / minor / subsidiary subject for at least two years and secured minimum of 45 % (40% for SC / ST / Category – I candidates) marks both in Physics and Mathematics.

Practical Laboratories:

The department has 5 practical laboratories; 1) General Lab, 2) Spectroscopic Lab, 3) Condensed Matter Physics, 4) Electronics and 5) Nuclear Physics. 

Research Laboratories:
The department has two established research laboratories:

1.     Theoretical Physics research laboratory funded by BRNS (To Dr Antony Prakash Monteiro; Rs 11.71 lakhs)

4.     Centre for Theoretical Nuclear and Particle Physics for Advanced Studies (To Dr Antony Prakash Monteiro; Rs 20.00 lakhs)

https://spcputtur.org/infrastructural-grants/center-for-theoretical-nuclear-and-particle-physics-for-advanced-studies/

Each laboratory is equipped with basic amenities like water, electricity, round the clock fast internet, computers, printer, scanner,

Activities:

Ever since the department was established, it is our aim and dream to cater the needs of students and research scholars and to serve the society. Over the 09 years of the establishment, we have conducted more than 07 to 08 National and International seminars / conferences / workshops with the help of funding agencies. We have conducted numerous scientific outreach activities. All these are for the benefit of our own students and for the scientific community.

We have associated with Government Scientific Agencies like Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS), Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology (KSCST), Karnataka Science and Technology Academy (KSTA), Vision Group on Science and Technology (VGST), Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) etc.
