About Physics department

The Physics Department is one of the oldest departments in the university. In the beginning it was started to cater to the needs of undergraduate teaching in various disciplines including those of Technology and Agriculture. M.Sc. (Physics) programme with specialization in Agricultural Meteorology, Biophysics and Instrumentation was started in 1973. A new field of specialization of Digital Electronics was also later added in the M.Sc. (Physics) programme. Ph.D. in Physics programme was started in 1983 by the department. The admissions to these programme are made through an entrance examination conducted by the university in the month of May. The department has facilities for research both in theoretical and experimental physics.

Research work

The most outstanding impact of the Agricultural Biotechnology program at Pantnagar besides generation of human resources has been reorientation of agriculture research to problem solving and end use mode by incorporating tools of molecular biology and biotechnology. It has permitted university to take up advanced research in the areas of basic plant molecular biology, transgenic, immunodiagnostic especially for plant and animal diseases and pregnancy diagnostics, embryo transfer technology, IVF etc. Recently a program mode support programme (second phase) in Agricultural Biotechnology of worth Rs. 20 crores has been sanctioned from DBT, Govt. of India for implementation of four projects in three different areas viz. signal transduction, aromatic rice and neutraceuticals. Scientists, in the Department, are also continuously fetching funds from DST, DBT, ICAR & DRDO to do seminal work in key research areas of agricultural importance. The bio-agents developed by the university have already reached farmers. The immunodiagnostic kits for detection of Karnal bunt and early pregnancy in cattle are under validation. A salmonella inactivated toxin has been patented. The several other patents are in pipeline.
