Ph.D. Physics or Doctor of Philosophy in Physics is a Doctorate Physics Course. Physics is a natural science that involves the study of matter. The Course includes matter physics, high energy physics, non-linear optics, quantum optics and laser physics, solid state physics and materials science and electronic science. The areas of research include high TC superconductivity, magnetism, phase transitions, critical phenomena, glasses and ceramics, liquid crystals, thin films, ion-solid interactions, semiconductors and super lattices, nanostructure materials, localization, percolation, molecular dynamics, neural networks, quantum field theory, quantum chromo dynamics, CP violation, heavy quarks, non-linear dynamics, quantum computing, stochastic-quantization, modern quantum optics including Femto second laser experiments and theory, ferroelectrics and microwave devices. The duration of the course is three years and it provides many career opportunities to the candidates after its completion.

Ph.D. Physics Eligibility

  • M.Phil. Degree or M.Sc. in Physics or Material Science with minimum 60 % marks or equivalent CGPA (relaxed to 55% or equivalent CGPA for SC/ST).
  • The candidate should have qualified at least one of the following national level tests in Physics in last 2 years: CSIR/UGC-JRF or CSIR/UGC – LS with rank less than or equal to 200 or JEST/GATE with rank less than or equal to 300.
  • Selection will be based on direct interviews of the short-listed candidates.

Ph.D. Physics Course Suitability

  • They should have practical skills such as planning, executing and reporting experiments, using technical equipment and paying attention to detail.
  • They should be able to use mathematics to find solutions to scientific problems; create mathematical modelling and interpret and present information graphically.
  • Candidates should have good logical arguments, apply analytical skills and grasp complex problems.
  • Those who want to enhance their educational degree and put an extra weight to it can go for it as well.

How is Ph.D. Physics Curse Beneficial?

  • The course is beneficial for those who want to continue further study in Physics and do Ph.D. on any specialized field of Physics, which may be atomic and condensed matter physics, laser physics, particle physics and many more.
  • Doing Ph.D. in Physics requires patience and minute observation of every aspect of the field chosen for Ph.D.
  • Physicists study about the basic laws of nature and are generally involved in experimenting as well as expanding and refining theories. They also apply their calculations and theories to other areas such as communications, biology, engineering, electronics, geophysics, health, chemistry and transportation.
