KU first University to have Ion Beam Facility
Kurukshetra University is set to earn a rare distinction as it is going to be the first University in India to house a unique National ‘Ion Beam Facility’. A research project “Ion Induced Growth and Engineering of Materials” worth Rupees 8.67 Crores has been sanctioned by DST, New Delhi to set up state-of-the-art ‘Low Energy Ion Accelerator’ with Dr. Sanjeev Aggarwal as its Principal Investigator, Prof. Shyam Kumar, Prof. Nafa Singh, Dr. Annu Sharma (all from Department of Physics) and Dr. D. Kanjilal, Dr. Sundeep Chopra (both from IUAC, New Delhi) as its Co-Investigators to set up this facility for R & D at Department of Physics, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra.
This National Facility at Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra will be the ‘First’ of its kind in any University in India. Once installed, this will work as a Central facility and users will be allowed to undertake a wide variety of research in various disciplines.
The other achievements of the Department are as under:
FIST Level – I Programme of DST, New Delhi
The Department has been granted Rs. 53 lacs by Department of Science & Technology, New Delhi under its FIST Programme (2003- 2010) for up-gradation of Teaching and Research Labs during 10th plan. By now, research facilities to the tune of 47 lacs have been installed and the further development is currently in progress.
SAP Programme of UGC, New Delhi
The Department has been granted Rs. 66 lacs by University Grants Commission, New Delhi under its SAP Programme (2009-2014) for up-gradation of Teaching and Research Labs during 11th plan. Further development under this programme is currently in progress.
Department has produced about 122 Ph.Ds and 240 M.Phils. Currently 30 scholars are registered for their Ph.D. degree. Currently, the faculty members are actively engaged in the following domains of Research
