The department organizes seminars and colloquia from time to time, and there is a regular journal club in which all the members of the department (students, research staff and faculty) participate, and discuss new research and ideas. Apart from that, there are other informal scientific activities as well e.g. quantum society, physics club-like bigger forums and multiple smaller forums. We are engaged in the outreach activities to introduce the exciting research being done to the general public. We are constantly looking for new avenues to interact with the general public and nearby schools to encourage youngsters towards fundamental and applied physics. The department also encourages the prospective students to apply for summer internships. The faculty members have been supervising the internships from past couple of years, to train the young minds in frontier research techniques.
