The department of Physics was established in 1968  with Physics as one optional subject for B. Sc.

About the Department  

 The department of PHYSICS was established in June 1968, with the establishment of the institution. The department initially was located in a space of about 50 sq.m. in old rented buildings P.U.C. and P.P.C. two classes were started initially. Other classes i.e. B.Sc.IIyr and B.Sc.III year started progressively. Initially Shree B.S. Jadhav was the only teacher in the department. Shree Alange B.Sc.(Hon.) joined him in 1969 as a demonstrator. He left the department in 1971. Shree S.V.Patil joined the department in 1971 as a lecturer.

          In 1970-71, the first batch of B.Sc.III year appeared for university examination. The success rate of the first batch was 100%. This rate is maintained, more and less throughout the history of the department.

          At present, the department has a separate building on the college campus. It occupies an area of about 225 sq.m., which includes two general laboratories, one semi dark room for some electrical experiments, one dark room for optical experiment, store room, departmental staff room. These facilities are available in the department. The institution has provided a sufficient number of instruments and furniture.

          In June 1991 shri. B. S. Jadhav was appointed as a principal in charge of the institution by M.S.P. mandal; and in 1999 he took over as a regular principal. During this period in Sr.College Shri. S.V.Patil taken charge as HOD

Dr.P.S. More joined the department as lecturer from 2003 to 2007.Prof.P.M.Kshirsagar joined as lecturer from 2005 to 2007.After that Prof.B.B. Kolhe and Dr. B.G.Lone joined as a lecturer in the department of Physics in 2007.  Dr.S.D.More joined as assistant Professor in Apr.2010

Dr.Lone visited Poznan, Poland to present a research paper in an international conference during 3-6 Sept 2006 and got first prize for best oral presentation. In 2007 Dr.B.G.Lone has been successfully running Major research project of amount Rs.11.99Lakhs funded by University Grants Commission (New Delhi,Govt. of India). Dr. B.G. Lone has been awarded by DST (New Delhi, Govt. of India) YOUNG SCIENTIST award 2009 and sanctioned the project entitled “adsorption of DNA on single wall carbon nanotubes”of Rs. 26.00 Lakhs.

Dr.Lone B.G. Lone awarded Raman Postdoctoral fellowship by UGC for 2013-14, amount sanctioned $30000 & he successfully completed his postdoc from Utah state university Logan U.S.A. Since feb.2016, Dr.B.A.M.UAurangabad has given recognition as a Ph.D. guide in Physics.

There are four research students enrolled (pursuing) their Ph.D. in Physics, two of them are international students.

The department is always active in curricular and co-curricular activities; such as Physics forum, science exhibition etc.

Mr.Karde R.B. joined the department on 09/07/2018 as assistant professor on C.H.B. basis.

Also, Joined as research student for pursuing Ph.D. from 01.01.2019.

Scope and importance of the subject:(Minimum 500words)

Physics is defined as systematic and formulated knowledge of any object in the Universe. Once we understand the basic concepts, we feel that physics is the most simplest and interesting subject. However, Physics is a difficult and boring subject, if we do not know the basic concepts.

          Physics is the broadest of the sciences. In the 18000’s it was called Natural Philosophy. It is the description of “how the natural world works”. Physics comprises astronomy, electronics, optics, thermodynamics, hydraulics, mechanics (statics and dynamics), atomic theory, cosmology, physical chemistry and other fields.            Some sciences like biology, organic and inorganic chemistry, botany, zoology, physiology, etc. are the physics at their base, although they are studied at a much higher level. Formerly called natural philosophy, physics is concerned with those aspects of nature, which can be understood in a fundamental

under the action of given forces. The physics of fields is concerned with the origin, nature, and properties of gravitational electromagnetic, nuclear, and other force fields. Taken together, mechanics and field theory constitute the most fundamental approach to an understanding of natural phenomena which science offers. The ultimate aim is to understand all natural phenomena in these terms. See also classical field theory; Mechanics; Quantum field theory.

The older, or classical, divisions of physics were based on certain general classes of natural phenomena to which the methods of physics had been found particularly applicable. The divisions are all still current, but many of them tend more and more to designate branches of applied physics or technology, and less and less inherent divisions in physics itself. The divisions or branches of modern physics are made in accordance with particular types of structures in nature with which each branch is concerned.

          In every area, physics is characterized not so much by its subject-matter content as by the precision and depth of understanding, which it seeks. The aim of physics is the construction of a unified theoretical scheme in mathematical terms whose structure and behavior duplicates that of the completely natural world in the most comprehensive manner possible. Where other sciences are content to describe and relate phenomena in terms of restricted concepts peculiar to their own disciplines, physics always seeks to understand the same phenomena as a special manifestation of the underlying uniform structure of nature as a whole. In line with this objective, physics is characterized by accurate instrumentation, precision of measurement, and the expression of its results in mathematical terms.

          For the major areas of physics and for additional listings of articles in physics See also Acoustics; Atomic physics; Biophysics; Classical mechanics; Electricity; Electromagnetism; Elementary particle; Fluid mechanics; Heat; Low-temperature physics; Molecular physics; Nuclear physics; Optics; Solid-state physics; Statistical mechanics.

          The first half of the twentieth century was marked by a stupendous expansion of our knowledge in the field of physics. Theory of relativity compelled us to modify the hitherto admitted laws of mechanics and electromagnetism. The discoveries, in the atomic and corpuscular scale that followed introduced us into a new world which

Until then had been totally unknown to us. We then realized that the physical world, such as it appears to our blunt, unsuspecting senses, conceals a more subtle reality, in which elementary particles are active, subject to the strange laws of quantum of action.

          Thus we come to know prose electrically charged particles, which we call electrons, protons, atomic nuclei and those units of radiant energy which are called photons. More recently the discovery of neutrons, positrons and mesons has made new additions to the list of more elementary particles of nature.

          The novel theory of quanta that resulted from the researchers of Max Planck on black body radiation enabled us to build up a rational scheme of the atom, Next followed wave mechanics, which was but an improved and modified form of the quantum theory. This gave acceptance to the general idea of a duality between waves and corpuscle, predicted the beautiful phenomenon of the diffraction of electrons and refined still more the theory of the atom and of the molecule.

Our knowledge of basic and applied physical sciences has been increasing at a far greater rate than it ever has been. Such an explosion of knowledge compels us to take a fresh look at the presentation of atomic physics in a way that will acquaint students with the concepts and at the same time keep them abreast of recent developments. Atomic physics tackled the difficult study of the nucleus of the atom. At the very beginning of this century, the phenomenon of Natural Radioactivity gave proof of how complex the structure of the nucleus. Physicists soon found the means of disrupting atomic nuclei. The study of cosmic rays and of their effects in our atmosphere has also brought us important information. To-day, nuclear physics is continuously making new progress and we are all aware of the resounding successes it has recently achieved.

          The discoveries of Atomic physics have been instruments of marvelous progress. The discoveries are beneficial in their applications. The thermionic valve, the photoelectric cell, the thousand and one varied appliances have been of immense utility in the various fields of Electro and radio techniques.

Metallurgists and microbiologists are daily using the diffraction of electrons and the electron microscope. As for the utilization of nuclear energy, it is certainly destined to be used in a new area in the history of civilization.

          Due to the present rapid growth of the fascinating basic subject physics, for up-to-date knowledge, we must read current periodicals.    The last decade brought about phenomenal changes in the field of microwaves and opto-electronics, which have grown with tremendous speed owing to their potential applications in communication, automobiles, sensors, healthcare space and defense research etc.

          The development of microwave and optoelectronics technologies in recent years has revolutionized modern communication and sensor technologies and other areas of electronics. Concepts of advanced microwaves and optoelectronics are currently being explored to provide new foundations for a secure future in which sensing, imaging, information processing, communication systems and networking will play a pivotal role.
