actively engaged in teaching and research. Presently the Department offers Physics,
Electromagnetic field theory, Solid state device and Basic Electrical Sciences courses to
different engineering branches of B. Tech. The faculty members are presently engaged in
research in the broad areas of effect of Noise on nonlinear system, low temperature
physics, non-linear dynamics, quantum information and its interface with many-body
physics, Time series analysis.
The Department has active research collaborations with Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Kolkata, Jadavpur University and Harish-chandra Research Institute, Allahabad. Currently Radon gas monitoring system, a possible avenue for early earthquake detection, has been installed at NIT Sikkim, in colaboration with Jadavpur University.
