The department was established in the year 1960 in the Manasagangotri campus of the Mysore University. Beginning as a small department offering only an M.Sc. course in one special subject spectroscopy, today it has grown into one of the largest departments on the campus offering both Master's and Doctoral programs covering one or more aspects of physics.
On this site, we hope to provide complete information about the department, its faculty—both past and present—who have shaped its course and contributed their mite to its overall development. As such, you will not find any policy related issues on this site. If by chance there is one, it is not official.
The department is located at Manasagangotri postgraduate campus of the university. Click on the image below for a detailed map of the campus and the city.
