Department of Physics

The Department of Physics of Raidighi College was established in 1995. The first appointed teacher was Dr. Satyabrata Sahoo in the Physics Department in its early days in 1997. Dr. Sahoo initiated a huge development in this department (specifically on the laboratory and departmental library) as well as in this college. Later Prof. Sankar Kumar Santra joined in 2009 as part-time teacher. In the next year 2010, two more faculty members joined: Prof. Chanchal Das and Prof. Swati Purkait. The department was impaired its enthusiastic operation since Dr. Sahoo left the college and became the Principal at Dhrubachand Halder College, Dakshin Barasat in 2012. However, the department become energized once again in 2017 when two more assistant professors Dr. Shreyasi Pal and Dr. Amitava Moitra joined.

The department runs Undergraduate Honours and General Courses under the Choice-Based Credit System (CBCS) introduced from 2018-19 session. Under the present CBCS curriculum of UG Physics programme, the students are expected to have the following expertise by the end of the degree program:

As the present CBCS syllabus has invoked a lot of application based knowledge area, such as current programming language: Python, scientific writing editor: Latex, etc., students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of core knowledge in physics, with ready to be a part in academic, research, or IT based industries, with proficiency in language (skill enhancement course) communication.

Students would be able to demonstrate written and oral communication skills in communicating physics-related topics.

Students would be able to design and conduct an experiment or series of experiments, demonstrating their understanding of the scientific methods and processes.

Students should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the analytical methods required to interpret and analyze results and draw conclusions as supported by their data.

Students should be able to demonstrate proficiency in the acquisition of data using a variety of laboratory instruments and in the analysis and interpretation of such data.

Students could utilize a wide range of printed and electronic resources and information technologies to support their research on physical systems and present those results in the context of the current understanding of physical phenomena.

Students would be able to demonstrate understanding of the applications of numerical techniques for modeling physical systems for which analytical methods are inappropriate or of limited utility.

Students would be able to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the analytical approach to modeling of physical phenomena.

Students would be able to demonstrate an understanding of the impact of physics and science on society.
