Physics


The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everything

…..ALBERT EINSTEN

Profile:

The department of physics was established, in 1962 by offering physics to PUC students.
In 1965 – 66 the department started offering physics to the students of the newly introduced course B.Sc (M.P.C) in English medium.

Later the same course was introduced for Telugu medium students from 1972 – 74 onwards.

Curriculum is designed as a combination of Osmania university syllabus and other universities syllabi so that the student’s are trained   to appear for all competitive exams.

As part and parcel of our curriculum we make our syllabi viable to the students by following semester exams under CBCS.

Progression:

The college introduced a new course for B.Sc with Maths, Physics and Computer science combination in English medium under autonomy. The department also started offering physics for students of B.Sc with Maths, physics and electronics i.e. M.P.E combination in the year 2005 – 06 in English medium. This course was discontinued from the academic year 2008 – 2009 due to the decline in demand as the outgoing students did not have any additional advantage for either job placements or higher studies. At present electronics is offered to students with Maths and computer science combinations in English medium.

Presently, department offers physics to students of two courses. 1. M.P.C 2. M.P.Cs with English as medium of instruction.

Many students have joined in PG courses under Osmania University, its affiliated colleges and also Central University for pursuing higher studies. Many of the students have been placed in various jobs as Faculty, lab technician, Hospital Management fields etc.

The department was very fortunate to have very committed, sincere and knowledgeable faculty right from the inception of the department. Mrs. V. Dharmamba was the first HOD of the department and also the first Vice – Principal of the college who served till 1986. She along with the other members of the department was instrumental in developing the department initially. Later the mantel was given to Dr. R. Kamala, with the support of other members took the department to greater heights by introducing new methodologies in theory and practicals. Under her supervision the department had shown the robust development behind which they were many hands. The students were trained to handle and use latest measuring instruments like Vernier calipers to the usage of modern equipments like fibre – optic kits, lasers and also renewable energy source kits.

The department carries a pride to be first college under O.U. Jurisdiction to introduce special topics:

  • Fourier optics.
  • Optical fibres and their applications.
  • Application of Bio – physics.
  • Astro physics.
  • Nano technology is introduced from 2011 – 2012 in paper VII for III year students.
  • Two electives namely 1.Solid State Physics & 2.Spectroscopy and Instrumentation are being offered to students of final year from 2011 – 2012.

Project work is introduced for final years in practical paper VIII from 2012-2013 admitted batches as a complete practical paper.

  • Two electives namely
    1. Electronic principles & Applications and
    2. Electromagnetic theory are being offered to final year students from 2012-2013 in the V semester of Paper VI.

In practicals the following new experiments are introduced

  • Computer Simulated Experiments
  • Computer Simulated – Refraction – Snell’s Law
  • Computer Simulated – Interference, Youngs Double Slit Experiment & Astronomical Refracting Telescope.
  • Experiments Using Fibre Optic Kits ,Solar Cells.

Achievement:

Physics club was inaugurated by Prof. Tippa Reddy on 27/06/2011 in A.V. room.

It has been announced as a one of the highly rated department in the college by UGC, under CPE.

The department is maintaining a library with a collection of about 650+ books which includes text books, general books and reference books. Staff and students have access to use these books for their perusal. The department has twelve computers along with 3 printers and scanner for the progressive development of the faculty and students.

For better understanding of the subject, the students are provided with question banks and practical manuals prepared by faculty members.

Activities

Mission:

Introduction of computer simulated experiments for B.Sc final year also, from 2016 – 2017.

  • To acquire more sophisticated equipment useful for teaching and research.
  • To increase the interaction with laboratories and industries.
  • To strengthen the research activity.
  • Various activities like poster presentation, quiz , exhibits, ppt. etc. are conducted under physics club.
  • To install crystal studio software for teaching the elective paper “Solid State Physics”.

Laboratories Details :

Always physics department is provided with latest and modern equipment like constant deviation spectrometer, optical fibre kits, iodine vapour tube ,Hall effect apparatus, G.M. Counter, LASERS, solar cells, Lissajous figures, Non uniform bending, computer simulation experiment like Snells law, refraction, Youngs double slit expts, Law of Malus etc.

Innovations:

  • Innovative models of crystallography is used for making the understand the arrangement of atoms and molecules in the solids.
  • Working models of phase shift oscillator, RC COUPLED Amplifier makes students to understand the use of signals.
  • Case study and research analysis are always practiced to make the students understand certain topics of Statistical mechanics and Thermodynamics.
  • Action research program is taken up for making first year students to get familiar with waves and oscillations.
