ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The School of Pure & Applied Physics is one of the first departments that started along with the establishment of the Mahatma Gandhi University in 1983. The original Department of Materials Science was reorganised into the School of Pure & Applied Physics in the year 1990. During the short span of its existence the School has developed into one of the foremost premier research departments in India. The School has trained thirty-two batches of M. Sc. and twenty four batches of M. Phil. students. More than 110 students have been awarded their PhD degree from this School. The School has been nationally recognised through the UGC: SAP-DRS Phase I, phase II and DST –FIST programs. We have a teaching faculty at par with international standards. We have published more than 700 original research publications in international journals. The School has conducted a number of national seminars and arranged refresher courses for college teachers. Many of our alumni who had been awarded international fellowships, are now working in premier institutions in India, USA, UK, Germany, Japan and Taiwan.
