The Department of Physics of Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET) has started functioning as a full fledged department since the inception of the University in 1962. The department has been offering Physics courses to the undergraduate Engineering & Architecture students. Adequate laboratory facilities are available to supplement the theoretical knowledge and to provide experimental basis. The department has introduced Postgraduate program (M. Phil & Ph. D) in the year 1982 and M. Sc. in the year 2014. The research is conducted in the fields of Magnetism, Solid State Physics, Crystal Growth, Polymer Physics, Health Physics, Medical Physics & Radiation Protection, and Atmospheric Physics. The Department has 25 faculty members and 11 technical personnel. So far more than 26 Ph. D., 226 M. Phil. and 15 M.Sc. students have received their degrees from this Department. At present about 25 M.Sc., 25 M. Phil. and 9 Ph. D. students are working. The Departmental offices and laboratories are housed in the Old Academic Building (OAB).
Research in the Department is broadly catagorized into three groups 1) SOLID STATE PHYSICS 2) ATMOSPHERIC PHYSICS 3) HEALTH AND MEDICAL PHYSICS SOLID STATE PHYSICS The research in this branch is carried out in the following fields: Magnetism, Superconductivity & Colossal Magnetoresistance The current research activity in this field focuses on the magnetic and electrical properties of nanostructured magnetic materials. A group of teachers are investigating the magnetic properties like magnetization, magnetic anisotropy and magnetostriction of hard and soft magnetic materials in the form of bulk, thin films and ribbons and also nanostructured magnetic materials. This group also investigates cuprate high Tc superconductors, and colossal magnetoresistance in manganite perovskites. The CMR studies are performed on polycrystalline bulk and thick film samples. . This group has a research collaboration with the IPPS, Uppsala University, Sweden and the DepaContinue reading
