Department of Physics

 

Introduction

TOP

The Department of Physics is the oldest Science Department imparting instructions at the Postgraduate level, here at GCU. We take pride in the contributions of Ravian Physicists towards the prosperity and national security of Pakistan. The Department's old boys occupy positions of eminence at national organizations of science and technology. Our scientists are on top at prestigious organizations like the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) and the Dr. A.Q. Khan Research Laboratories. Many are serving abroad. Our alumni have bagged 45 Civil Awards, which is the highest number of Civil Awards won by physicists from any educational or research institution in Pakistan. Keeping in view this history of excellence, we hope that the new graduates will keep up the traditions of the department by outshining other institutions in the years to come.

 

Facilities

TOP

For the success of the BSc (Hons) in Physics, BSc (Hons) in Electronics, MPhil & PhD. in Physics Programmes, all necessary facilities are provided in the Department. We have a highly qualified faculty, modern research laboratories, an up-to-date library, Internet facility, etc.

 

Research Laboratories

 

There are several well-equipped research laboratories to carry out research work in Plasma Physics and Technology, Nano-materials, Concrete and Ceramic, Materials Science, Electronic Control Systems and Radiation Physics. These laboratories are publishing their research work in international Journals.

 

Theoretical Research

 

Groups are actively engaged in the research problems related to Theoretical Plasma Physics, Space plasmas, Laser Matter Interaction, Particle Physics and Radiation Physics.

 

Salam Chair in Physics

 

The Salam Chair in Physics has been established in memory of Nobel Laureate, Old Ravian and later Professor of Mathematics, Dr. Abdus Salam, to promote and enhance research activity in Physics at GC University Lahore.

 

Future Prospects

 

A Higher Degree in Physics opens up new avenues of development for students. They can become scientists, researchers, teachers, etc.
