Department of Physics

We are one of the largest departments in IITD with 56 faculty members as of Jan 2020 having diverse interests. Our faculty strength is nationally and internationally recognized through many awards/fellowships such as SS Bhatnagar awards, ICO Galileo Galilei Awards, MRSI medals, AIP Fellowship, IRDC’s STA Fellowship, INSA Fellows, OSA Fellows, Humboldt Fellows. Many of faculty members serve on the editorial boards and technical program committees of several international publications and conferences.

The Department initiated its activities in 1961 and is currently one of the most popular physics departments in the country. It has an international research reputation, with several research contacts and collaborations across the globe. The department’s greatest resources are the students that fill its classrooms and state of the art facilities that existed at IITD.
