Research & Extension

Department is involved with research in the areas of Crystal Growth and their characterisations, Thin Film and Electronic devices, heavy ion, nucleon-nucleon interaction and theoretical condensed matter Physics. Seminar by Students, General Seminar by teacher and research students given the idea about the research specialisation available in the Department. Looking to the societal responsibility department under take research work on Scientific and Social Surveys on Diamond Industries in Surat as well as Reaction Kinetics of Kidney Stones, Growth Kinetics and drug implications on naturally grown and  surgically removed kidney stones. Department has avail SAP, DST, FIST First phase and PANDA Collaboration. Prof. Poria is activity engaged with Sophisticated Science Instrumentation Centre (SSIC), and Prof. Joshi is looking after University Science Instrumentation Centre (USIC).
