Infrastructure and facilities
The Department at present has four full time teaching faculty members. Research Facilities include a Laser and Spectroscopy Laboratory housing indigenously built Nitrogen Laser
and  Dye  Laser  equipments,  a  solid  state research lab for studying electrical properties of thin film and crystalline materials, a DST - funded Centre for Advanced Computation (under FIST program). There  are  Laboratories  for  Electronics  & Instrumentation, Solid State Physics, Optics & Lasers, General electronics and computers. The Department has a rich Library with more than 20,000 books and journals.

A  Nanomaterial laboratory is being set-up in the Department from a special development grant given by DST, Government of Bihar. This laboratory  will  have  nanoparticle  sample preparation  facility  and  in  house characterization equipments including X-ray Diffractometer, Impedance analyzer and thin- film preparation set-up.

The areas of research that are carried out in this Department include the following :
(1) Laser Interferometeric study of anomalous behavior of water.
(2) Study  of  Nanocrystalline  Magnetic Materials.
(3) Photoconductivity Studies.
(4) Deterministic Chaos.
(5) Computational Fluid Dynamics.
