AIET Department

Physics

Department of physics was started in the year 2008 with the inception engineering college as a supporting group to various engineering disciplines. The faculty members of the department are committed to innovation in teaching, excellence in basic and applied research, and enhancement of the quality of student’s life. The Department has a well-established Engineering Physics Laboratory and a VTU approved Research Centre which leading towards Ph.D. degree.

The department is recognized as research center of VTU in the year 2013 and offers Ph.D in Physics. At present, five research students are pursuing Ph.D degree. All the teaching faculties are also actively involved in various research activities. Recently our research center has been upgraded with three labs viz. Nano Organic Electronics Lab (NOEL), Earth’s Field NMR (EFNMR) lab and computational lab. NOEL-EFNMR lab is equipped with Keithley source meter, Magritek earth’s field NMR/MRI setup, two probe electrical measurement setup and optical microscope. For computational facilities the lab harbors high end workstations and for high speed density functional theory (DFT) calculations the lab uses offshore computational facility situated in Institute of Molecules and Materials of Le Mans (IMMM), Université Du Maine, Le Mans, France.
