About Department of Physics

The Department of Physics, came into existence in June 1987, offers a two year program of MSc and a five-year Integrated-MSc program (with specializations in Condensed Matter Physics, Electronics and Laser Physics), Integrated-PhD and regular PhD programs. The research areas of the Department of Physics are widespread in the fields of magnetic materials, multiferroics, spintronics, dielectrics, photonics, solid state ionics, spectroscopy and transport studies, nonlinear optics and semiconductor lasers, nonlinear dynamics, statistical mechanics, plasma physics, magnetohydrodynamics, atomic physics and quantum field theory. The Department has nine patents and many national and international collaborative research programs. The department has been recognized for special funding by DST-FIST and UGC-SAP to promote research activities in Condensed matter physics, Optics, Lasers and Theoretical physics.

About MSI

Magnetics Society of India is a registered professional body that came into existence in 1973 with its office located in DMRL Hyderabad. The main objective of MSI, among several others, is to bring together all those who work in the field of magnetics, to a common forum for dissemination of technical information, sharing of technical facilities, assessing the technical needs of industries and promoting a strong interaction among academicians, technocrats and entrepreneurs. Currently, the society derives its strength from nearly 60 Patron members (from companies) and about 550 Life members.
