Department Overview

Head of Department: Prof. Beer Pal Singh (15.01.2020-14.01.2023)

The Physics Department of the Chaudhary Charan Singh University Meerut was established in 1969. The department has the distinction of starting M.Phil degree programme in semester system in the country and subsequently started to offer 4-semester (2-years) M.Sc (Physics) degree with specialization in electronics and Ph.D programme. Currently, the department takes 20-students in M.Sc degree programme and 10-students in M.Phil. The department has the largest faculty amongst the teaching departments of the university. The department of physics has 8-sanctioned faculty positions, which include 2-Professors, 3-Associate Professors and 3-Assistant Professors.

The department today is an active beehive of research being carried out in a wide variety of frontier areas as well as high quality post-graduate and doctoral programs. The research programs of the Department cover a number of areas like Materials Science, Nanotechnology, Renewable Energy, Thin Films, Condensed Matter Physics, MEMS, Nanoparticles, Photonics and Superconductors etc.

The growing international reputation of the Department has enabled it to join several international collaborations such as Marco Polo Cooperation Program on Scientific and Technological Cooperation between the Università degli Studi di Catanzaro "Magna Græcia" (UMG), Italy, and University of Tokyo, Japan. Faculty members are also collaborating with the scientists at University of Puerto Rico, Mayahuez, USA, IUAC, New Delhi, IIT-R etc. The department has undertaken a large number of R&D projects from various sponsoring agencies and is involved in international collaborations and industrial consultancy projects.

The Department's illustrious legacy and its continuous stride in academic excellence over many decades have been duly acknowledged by the Department of Science & Technology, New Delhi, resulting in the endowment of financial assistances through schemes FIST and University Grants Commission, New Delhi. These grants have helped in strengthening the post graduate laboratories and basic infrastructure and the procurement of state of art instruments for research.

LabVIEW-based Interactive Virtual Laboratory

LabVIEW based Interactive Virtual Laboratory

The computer technology and the Internet have the potential to provide a highly interactive and powerful learning environment for physics disciplines. Department has several Dual Core, i3 and i7 based desktop computers for students. LabVIEW™ software and ELVIS based dedicated interactive Virtual Laboratory (VLE) for teaching of electronics has been established.
It consists of two sections: virtual simulation and real-time measurement. The system imparts practical training toward architecture, hardware configuration and system implementation.

This LabVIEW™ facility for teaching circuits and electronics will give students the ability to move seamlessly from theory and experimentation by combining hardware that is based on industry-standard technology with Multisim circuit simulation software. With Multisim, and interactive components, 3D bread boarding, and hardware integration will give students the ability to apply theory to real-world scenarios


Scanning Tunnelling Microscope

High resolution Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) probe has been commissioned at department for advanced material characterization at atomic level. This nanoRev 6 Scanning Tunneling Microscope is made by Quazar Technologies. The nanoREV 6.0 model is an ambient air Table-top STM and is capable to scan ultra-small area of 2mmx2mm with atomic resolution (Min resolution: 3pm). The nanoREV6 is capable to perform I-V and I-Z Spectroscopy, Topography and Local Density of State (LDOS) and Local Barrier Height (LBH) imaging can be done.

Micro and Class-1000 Clean Room Facility for Micro and Nanofabrication

Cleanroom environment is used in manufacturing functional electronics device. A Cleanroom is a controlled level of contaminant environment i.e.; a low level of pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes, aerosol particles, and chemical vapors per cubic meter at a specified particle size. An ISO 7 cleanroom (Class-10000) has been constructed to house MJB4-Optical stepper and Nanoimprint Lithography (NIL) for micro and nanofabrication. A clean room chemical processing facility consisting of wet chemical processing bench, photoresist film spin coater and various other processing instruments has also been constructed.


Micro and Nano structure Fabrication Facility

To fabricate a functional micro or nano scale electronic device, stepper or mask-aligner is required to expose a photoresist coated silicon wafer with photomask or reticle containing the micro or nano structure. The stepper is a device which passes light through the photomask or reticle, forming an image of the reticle pattern.Cleanroom environment is used in manufacturing functional electronics device. The state of art SUSS MJB4 contact aligner capable to print 0.5 mm has been installed for research in micro and nano fabrication. This stepper is also attachment of Nano Imprint Lithography for nano size feature fabrication. This contact aligner has 5 exposure modes; Soft Contact, Hard Contact, Vacuum Contact, Soft Vacuum Contact and Gap Exposure.
