Senior College


About the Subject

Physics is said to be the originator of all sciences, initially labeled as natural philosophy. The classification of sciences into physical, chemical and biological suggested Physical Sciences or Physics to be the science of inanimate matter and the various laws and processes prevalent in the Universe. Mathematics forms an integral part of the subject while technology is the immediate application of the subject.  

The applications of Physics in Electronics, Computer technology, Communication, LASERs, Energy systems, Nuclear Technology, Space mission etc are well know and the current need of promoting interdisciplinary research sees its importance in emerging areas of Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Nano-biotechnology etc. Fundamental physics helps us understand how universe was formed & how it is evolving.

About the Department

Physics was introduced as a subject for the intermediate science examination and a lot of electrical instruments came in. With the introduction of the 10+2+3 system, the junior college was started with student strength of around 500.

In the degree college, Physics is only offered at the first year B.Sc. along with Chemistry & Microbiology or Chemistry & Life Sciences. The maximum intake of students is around 40. The main laboratory is shared between the undergraduate and junior college students while a small 100 sqft room called the Physics Dark Room used for some optical experiments houses the departmental computer and has been developed into a research laboratory for Nanoscience (Magnetic nanoparticle synthesis and characterization) under the Women Scientist Research Grant awarded to our former degree college professor Dr. Radha S by the Dept of Science and Technology, New Delhi in 2005.
