Department of Condensed Matter Physics

The field of Condensed Matter Physics (CMP) is considered one of the broader and most versatile sub-fields of study in Physics. It is the elementary science of solids and liquids, and a scholarly demanding field that is presently producing many developments and progress in both basic Physics and technological applications through exploration of atomic scale properties of matter. The physicists emphasis the emergence of matter from an enormous number of interacting atoms and electrons as well as their physical properties. Such interactions restricted the set of ingredients to generate countless states and phases. The research activities include the most significant areas of the field: magnetic storage media (Hard Disk, Floppy Disk, USB, CD’s etc. ), sensors, security appliances, super capacitors, solar cells, fuel cells, electric storage batteries (Sodium ion/Lithium ion etc.) high-temperature superconductivity, strongly correlated nano-electronic/nano-magnetic devices, research at the interface of biomedical (Hyperthermia, Drug Delivery etc.) applications, low dimensional quantum devices, and develop many more multi-functional materials to boost the efficiency of devices which provide the foundations of most modern technologies, like energy, information, defense, and manufacturing.

Condensed Matter Physics (CMP) at Institute of Physics (IoP) covers a broad range of theoretical and experimental areas that are of key importance to the development of fundamental science and practical applications. The theoretical group uses analytical and numerical tools together with profound physical intuition to both resolves the riddles put forward by nature and experiment as well as predict and design new ones.


The experimental group utilizes a broad range of modern state of the art measurement techniques while developing novel experimental technologies and probes. Many of these facilities are provided under the umbrella of department (CMP) to investigate the numerous properties of materials by the vibrant faculty members having extensive expertise in the following probing techniques including X-ray Diffraction Analysis (XRD), Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) / Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA) / Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FE-SEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis (EDX), High-Resolution Electron Microscopy (HR-TEM), Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS), Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID), Ultraviolet-Visible Spectroscopy (UV-VIS), X-ray Photon Spectroscopy (XPS), Ferro-Electric Multiplexer, Thermo-electric System, Vector Network Analyzer (VNA), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Vibrating Sample Magnetometer (VSM). Our research advances the disciplines of our faculty, and places them at the forefront of their fields. This is an exciting time for you as you embark on your journey towards a graduate, post-graduate and doctoral degree. Most importantly, Department of Condensed Matter Physics possess hundred percent PhD faculty. Department of Condensed Matter Physics (CMP) is delighted to welcome you to the research community at the department of Condensed Matter Physics (CMP).
