Message of the HOD

The School of Physics (earlier known as Post Graduate Department of Physics) is one of the first Departments established under Sambalpur University. Since than this has been a pioneering centre in teaching and research in Physics. Eminent faculty members have taught to our students. In recognition of it’s excellence the school has been awarded financial grant under FIST programme by Department of Science and Technology, (DST) and also the grant of DRS-I under SAP by University Grant Commission (UGC) to strengthening the teaching and research of this department. After this grant, an experimental research laboratory has already been established for carrying out Ph.D. work in experimental Condensed Matter Physics. Students passed from this Department have excelled in their fields and have earned a name for this Department. In addition to this, School has collaboration in the research area with several leading Institutions/Universities of the Country including IISC, IIT`S, IOP, BARC, VECC and SINP. After the grant of DRS-I, school was awarded academic autonomous. After the autonomous status, the department is able to keep the academic calendar and publish the results within fifteen days from the last date of examination. For the session 2010-2012 the final results is published in May 12, 2012.
