Chairman’s Desk.....

It is my immense pleasure to place before


you a brief profile of department of physics,
giving a glance focusing on the highlights
of physics department-Vision, Mission,
Infrastructure facilities and activities etc.
With the vision to become an
outstanding response centre of higher
learning and world class research and
having mission to promote excellence in teaching and research in physical sciences,
department is doing an excellent effort for achieving its objectives…..Dr. U. S. Raikar,

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT

The Department of Physics, one of the major departments in the University, was established
in 1953 with the Late Dr. N.R. Tawade, a distinguished spectroscopist, as it’s first Head.
Many distinguished persons have since served on the faculty. Guided by a strong vision and
mission, the department has not only been serving the cause of higher education but also
contributing to the overall development of northern Karnataka. It has entered into its
diamond jubilee year 2013-14. In the last sixty years the faculty has produced around 141
PhDs and published more than 736 research papers in journals of international repute. The
Department is committed to achieve academic excellence, and all-round development of its
students. The department has produced many batches of students who have excelled in
research and teaching, with some having attained recognition both at the national and
international levels, winning Bhatnagar prizes and becoming Academy fellows. Some have
become Vice-Chancellors, administrators and entrepreneurs. In recognition of its high
academic and research standards, the UGC, DST and DRDO have funded major
programmes. The UGC has recognised the department as a Centre of Advanced Study in
the thrust areas of Condensed Matter Physics and Laser Physics. The department is
associated with major research programmes namely, UGC’s UPE and CPEPA and DST’s
PURSE.
