The department of Applied Physics offers Ph.D program in various research fields and will be advertised time-to-time in the website. We will admit students by national fellowships like CSIR,UGC-JRF or other equivalent national level exams and also through various means like institutional fellowship for GATE and NET qualified students. We also cater MoD sponsored candidates. Ph.D students who joined department will undergo course work for first six months and followed by a comprehensive exam at end of his first year. Clearing this confirms his registration for Ph.D program and he will continue to carry his research work in his respective field. After a satisfactory periodical reviews he/she will propose his work for thesis submission will be evaluated by a panel of examiners. Finally, after successful completion of his a open defense he will be awarded a Ph.D degree.
The department of Applied Physics offers Masters of Technology (M.Tech.) in three branch. The M. Tech. programme is of four-semester duration. In each of the first two semesters there are five courses and practical. There will be three continuous evaluation examinations and a final semester examination for every course. Half-yearly evaluation of the project takes place at the end of the third semester. At the end of the final semester the student submits a thesis and makes a presentation about the project, which is evaluated by the Internal and External examiners. Course syllabus has been updated periodically to keep pace with the contemporary technological advancement. For salient features of the M.Tech. Laboratory please click here.
M.Tech. in Sensor Technology
Sensors is one area of science and technology which has witnessed a paradigmshift from conventional bulky components to extremely miniaturized and smart devices. The technological advancements in the area of Electronics, Electrical engineering, along with the advancements in basic sciences in the areas of microfluidics, nanotechnology, biotechnology and photonics have been responsible for this concomitant growth inthe development of current sensors. An interdisciplinary approach which will involve materials engineering, electronics and electrical engineering along with a flavor of chemical engineering and bio-engineering, is now required to understand such sensors. The objective is to make them faster, smaller, smarter and selective. This domain has, hence, seen large number of Industries, Institutes and small entrepreneur companies coming up in recent times. The programme intends to educate and train bright fresh students in the field of sensor technology to carry out challenging responsibilities in their future career, and meet the current challenges and foster the opportunities which the globe has to offer. This is an interdisciplinary course concerning broadly Electronics, Instrumentation, Sensors, Optics, Electromagnetism, Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials.
M.Tech. in Laser and Electro-optics
One of the greatest scientific discoveries of the twentieth century that has led to technological advancement touching all aspects of human life is the LASER. Applications of lasers range from medical applications, communications, and industrial applications to military applications. An understanding of laser technology is essential for an engineer working in many of the present-day cutting-edge technologies. The aim of this program is to train the students in the field of lasers, fiber optics, electro-optics, and photonics that would enable them to meet the challenges in this rapidly developing field.

Department of Applied Physics at DIAT has excellent faculty and research expertise in the specific areas related to photonics like nano-photonics, ultra-fast photonics, bio-photonics, semiconductor optoelectronics and photonics devices, fiber optics, optical sensors, etc. To extend this expertise to the younger generations department has initiated two flagship programs i.e. M.Sc Applied Physics (Photonics) and M.Sc. (Tech.) in photonics. The aim of these programs is to train the students in the field of lasers, fiber optics, electro-optics, and photonics which would enable them to meet the challenges in this rapidly developing field
M.Sc. Applied Physics (Photonics)
The M.Sc. program is a 02 years program equivalent to any M.Sc. program elsewhere. However, there is a very good emphasis on practical exposure in various specialized areas as mentioned above through full-length laboratory courses. This program also allows students to work in research laboratories from day 1. A full semester is dedicated to doing the project without any additional coursework. This enables students to incline toward both research and gaining practical knowledge and makes them industry-ready.
M. Sc.(Tech.) Photonics
M.Sc. (Tech.) in Photonics is a three-year course more oriented toward research. During the 4th semester, M.Sc. Tech students will be offered specialized electives along with mini-projects. Also, there is one full year (2 semesters) i.e., the third year is completely dedicated to project work without any additional coursework
