Events

Science Day Celebration:


National Science Day is being celebrated every year on 28th February by the Physics Club of the Department of Physics, to widely spread a message about the importance of science in the daily life of the people. Activities like quiz, lecture, competitions, etc. are conducted in the college/department every year.


This year an Inter Faculty Quiz and Poster making Competition were organized by the Physics Club.


The theme of the year (2017 ) science day celebrations was “Science and Technology for Specially Abled Persons”

Physics Laboratory

All of the laws of physics are expressions of experimentally observed regularities in nature. In the laboratory you will have an opportunity to observe and discover those regularities directly. Laboratory work is a very important part of a course in General Physics. It reinforces the student’s understanding of fundamental concepts and principles while, at the same time, helping the student to develop skill in carrying out scientific measurements. For these reasons, the successful completion of the laboratory component will be required of every student.

Laboratory work is the heart of physics and experimenting is the most effective way of learning. Physics lab at M. L. S. M. College is well equipped to nurture and facilitate effective learning and is divided into- UG Lab for B.Sc. students and PG Lab for M.Sc. Students and it is equipped with state-of-the art equipment’s for demonstration experiments for all areas of physics related directly to mechanics, solid state, electronics, thermodynamics, optics and computational physics.


Physics Department has six laboratories.


For Under Graduate students: 2 Labs
Post Graduate students: 2 Labs
Dark Room (To perform experiment of optics) 1 Lab
Computational Laboratory (With 10 Computers) 1 Lab

The lab has a wide variety of instruments like low power Helium-Neon laser, Semiconductor diode lasers, good resolution spectrometers, optical pieces like lenses, gratings and Polaroid, photodiodes, microscopes, telescopes, sodium lamps, mercury lamps, gratings, bi-prisms,Newton’s ring, polarimeter,cathode ray oscilloscopes, constant current power supplies, potentiometers, ballistic galvanometers, digital multi-meters, sensitive ammeters and galvanometers along with relevant important materials to be studied.

Lab is operational daily for 6 hours in a week, during which one faculty member and two lab instructors are present for guidance.
