The Department of Physics was established along with the University in 1975. It is housed in the building called "Physics Block". The Department, besides well equipped teaching and research laboratories, has its own Computer Laboratory, Seminar Library, Workshop and Lecture Theatre. The Department is conducting teaching/research at the BS, M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. levels. The information regarding M.Phil/Ph.D. program can be obtained from the Chairman of the Department.

The following teaching laboratories are being maintained in the department in which a student is required to complete a number of experiments/practicals during studies.

  1. Undergraduate Physics Laboratory
  2. Modern Physics Laboratory
  3. Electronics Laboratory
  4. Advanced Electronics Laboratory
  5. Computer Hardware Laboratory
  6. IT and Computer Software Laboratory

The present research interests of the Department are in the fields of Crystal Growth, X-ray Diffraction and Condensed Matter Physics which are being catered by the following research laboratories. Collaborative research work is being carried out in these laboratories as detailed below:

Thin Films Laboratory

Thin Films play an important role in Solar Cell and a large number of other devices. Facilities exist for the evaporation of various elemental and compound materials in the form of thin films. Apparatus for the electrical, dielectric and the optical characterization of these samples is also available. Research grants were awarded to the laboratory by various funding organizations such as Pakistan Science Foundation, Atomic Energy Commission etc.
