A major physics department has distinct research groups and expertise both in Theoretical and Experimental fields and they are complimentary to each other.
In keeping with this tradition the department from its very inception and active faculty member and research groups in both theoretical and experimental fields.
THEORETICAL AREA :
The Department had a major research group under Prof. P. L. Srivastava, FNASc. in theoretical solid state Physics involving the development of pseudo-potential techniques for calculation of resistively electrical conductivity and
thermodynamic properties of liquid metals and alloys. This type of work had its valuable contribution in projecting the physical properties of naval materials (like binary alloys).
The other research area in theoretical solid state physics under Prof. K. K. P. Srivastava constitutes the study of magnetic interaction, Magnetic-relaxation and nano-particle magnetism, etc. Prof. Srivastava has developed novel
theories for (i) the spin lattice relaxation in magnetic ion-pairs 9 diners. (ii) the vibronic coupling in paramagnetic systems, (iii) the super paramagnetic relaxation 9 magnetism in nano-particles.
EXPERIMENTAL AREA :
The experimental research in Condensed Matter Physics/ Materials Science has been started under the able leadership of Prof. R. Sati. This group has been active in the area of ceramic ferroelectries and high temperature
superconductors. The main workers in the team now is Prof. S.N. Choudhary and Dr. Kamala Prasad and they are well trained from the Ferroelectrics laboratory of I.I.T., Kharagpur. They are having active research collaboration with
I.I.T. Kharagpur aand BOSE Institute, Kolkata.
Recently, under the DST project (ongoing) work for modified lead-based neonates have been fabricated with general formula Pb (Mgl-Nb2 JO3 for x = 1/3 and 1/4.
