Department of Physics

Beginning of Department of Applied Physics may be traced to 1995 with the establishment of the Institute of Engineering & Technology (Faculty of Engg. & Technology) and start of B.Tech. courses in various branches. At that time, department was part of division of Basic Sciences and Humanities; teaching Physics course of B.Tech students. Department started a post graduate course in M.Sc. in Applied Physics in 2004 and acquired a full-fledged status of a University department. The department is unique in the entire Rohilkhand region in the sense that it provides M.Sc. degree with specialization in Material Science introducing students to the striking fields of Material Science i.e. characterization of materials, crystal growth, Advanced Solid State Physics and Nano-Technology. Department is in the process to develop some credible research centers in the fields of computational physics and material simulation, macromolecular physics and high energy physics. Faculty members have received individual research projects from different funding agencies which includes AICTE, UGC, DST, DRDO, etc. more than 50 Lacs .

I last five years Department has published more the twenty research papers in the refereed journal of International repute. Six students have been awarded Ph.D./D.Phil. (One thesis is submitted). Some more students are working for the Ph.D./D.Phil. Faculty members of the Applied Physics Department have research collaboration with premier institution of India and abroad like. Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, National Physical laboratory, New Delhi, Lucknow University, Technical University Ilmenau (Germany); Otto-von-Guericke University, Magdeburg (Germany) , Julius Maximilian University Wurzburg (Germany)

Department has three regular faculty members and six Guest faculty

Dr. Saleem Khan

During the resent years especially after the commencement of experimental results received from LHC, Jeneva, study of Relativistic High Energy Nucleus – Nucleus Interactions has become a subject of extreme interest among the Physicists working in Nuclear Physics, Particle Physics, and Statistical Physics. This is perhaps due to the fact that such type of heavy ion interactions at relativistic energies (Energy of projectiles of the order of several GeV), may provide us information regarding nuclear matter under extreme conditions of temperature, pressure and density, which may reveal us many new nuclear phenomena like Nuclear Shock waves, anomalous and phase transition of hadrons gas into Quark gluon plasma.

While scientist were trying to study up to what extent the experimental conditions are favorable for the existence of phase transition into Quark gluon plasma, it was realized that the mechanism of nucleon-nucleon interactions is not fully understood. Thus an attempt should be made to study the mechanism of multi particle production during High Energy Nucleus- Nucleus Interactions systematically and thoroughly.

Experimental study of High Energy Nucleus- Nucleus interactions has been carried out using mainly Nuclear Emulsion Technique(NET).Nuclear Emulsion Technique is a versatile instrument to detect the charged particles. It is not only capable of providing us the counting of charged particles but also furnish information regarding mass, energy and the modes of interactions. Thus our prime goal is to study the mechanism of multi particle production of High Energy nucleus-nucleus collisions. For this purpose, HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS LABORATORY is proposed to establish in the Central research Lab in the University.


Dr.Archana Gupta

The group working under the supervision of Dr.Archana Gupta is actively engaged in the study of conformation and conformational dynamics of a variety of macromolecular systems including industrial and bio polymers. In particular we examine the vibrational dynamics using infrared absorption, Raman scattering and wherever permissible inelastic neutron scattering. complete normal coordinate analyses including the dispersion of the modes have been done for a number of polymeric systems. The applicant has recently studied the molecular structure and vibrational modes of some finite molecules using density functional theory (DFT). The applicant would like to continue to work along these studies and further extend them to some other important biomolecules.

Vibrational spectroscopy is an important tool for probing the conformation and conformationally sensitive modes of molecular system. vibrational spectroscopy, besides providing information about different conformational states, plays an important role in investigating the static and dynamical behaviour  of biomolecules in their complex environments. Quantum chemical calculations help in the interpretation of the experimental data. The traditional method of accurately calculating the vibrational and electronic properties of a molecule is to first perform a Hartree – Fock (HF) calculation followed by subsequent computation of electron correlation effects using the many – body perturbation theories or the coupled – cluster methods. Alternatively, density function theory (DFT) has provided another way of estimating the correlation effects at a lower computational cost. The Density function theory (DFT) has currently received a great deal of attention in the determination of ground state properties of small and medium size molecules and infinite polymer systems as well. Ab-initio and DFT calculations of the vibrational properties of biomolecules have in fact appeared in recent years, yielding results in general good agreement with experimental data.

Both experimental and theoretical approaches would be employed to do the work outlined in the preceding section. Experimentally it is planned to use Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, Fourier Transform Raman Spectroscopy and UV visible Spectroscopy. The ab initio and DFT calculations will be performed with the help of Gaussian 03 program and analysed with the help of Gaussview program. The cost of theequipment’s is given below
