Research Clusters

Cluster groups are formed by conveners of each subject with outstanding faculty members of our university along with other National Universities/Institutions or International bodies where active participation of the group members can bring about research prospects and new opportunities, address challenging aspects and solutions to existing problems existing in the respective fields, boosting collaborations and research activities, writing of new books (Edited books), interaction among different clusters.

PhysicsEnergy Production and Storage
The following areas are particularly intersting with the current materials research photovoltaics, thermoelectrics, phononics, batteries, fuel cells and supercapacitors.

Electronics & Photonics
Advances in fabrication techniques have led to recent advances in the areas: oxide semiconductors, perovskites, high K and low K dielectrics, ferroelectrics, plasmonics, spintronics,  multiferroics, nano materials.

Condensed Matter and Materials Physics
Research topics in this diverse area range from innovative studies of the basic properties of condensed-matter systems to the nanofabrication and study of advanced electronic, optoelectronic, spintronic, and quantum-superconductor devices.

Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
Nanoscience, the behavior of physical systems when confined to near atomic, nanoscale (< 100 nm) dimensions is currently one of the most dynamic and rapidly developing areas of interdisciplinary research in applied physics.

Astrophysics, Fusion and Plasma Physics
Plasma physics is the science of electrically conducting fluids and high-temperature ionized gases. While the best-known research impetus is controlled fusion as a potential source of electric power, plasma physics also underlies many solar, astrophysical, and ionospheric phenomena as well as industrial applications of plasmas.
