    The University Department of Physics, University of Mumbai established in the year 1971, offers postgraduate leading to the Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree, by research or papers, awarded by the University of Mumbai. In addition, M.Phil and Ph.D. degree programmes are also undertaken by the Department. Experienced faculty of the Department is devoted to research in their respective areas of specialization. Research and teaching are given equal importance by the faculty. Extra care is taken to pay individual attention to the students in their laboratory work and tutorial sessions. Project work and problem sessions are encouraged to develop innovative and analytical approach to physics learning. Topical seminars by scientists of nearby research institutes are arranged to create research-awareness amongst students. Some scientists are also invited for teaching, examination and curricular development.

    Department of Physics

    The Department of Physics is exclusively a postgraduate Department of the University of Mumbai. It is one of the centers of the University of Mumbai for conducting M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. programmes. Although it is one of the centres, it offers centralised M.Sc. lecture course programme for the benefit of students of other centres (e.g. various affiliated colleges) where lectures are not held. On behalf of the University, it also acts as a centralized admissions center for admission to M.Sc. (by papers), to all the postgraduate centres. University of Mumbai finances the department to create and maintain infrastructural facilities for its various teaching and research programmes. Additional finance required for research work is sought by individual faculty members from various national funding agencies such as UGC, DST, CSIR, BRNS, DOE, etc. It has a close interaction with teachers and scientists from teaching and research institutes associated with the University both for the teaching and research programme of the Department.


    The Department of Physics is housed in Lokmanya Tilak Bhavan and partely in Dnyaneshwar Bhavan located in well-planned Vidyanagari Campus of the University of Mumbai. The Vidyanagari Campus is off the C.S.T. Road (now known as Vidyanagari Marg) near Kalina and is accessible both from C.Railway and W.Railway. BEST bus route 318, 313, 91 and 37 plying between Kurla [West] (C.Railway) and 318, 313 and 306 Santacruz [East] (W.Railway) pass via Vidyanagari and 312 & 374 connect it to Andheri, Vile-Parle & Sion.

    On the very first visit, the student falls in love with the campus environment. Its well laid gardens and vast area, away from dense and noisy city, help to create necessary atmosphere for creative activities. Staff quarters, Girls' and Boys' hostels and late evening research workers keep the campus alive also in the evenings. Campus library houses books and journals of almost all the subjects. Canteen offers a common meeting place for students and teachers from various arts, science and commerce departments. It is a new experience for a science student to encounter a research worker deeply involved in an arts faculty. Summing up, the campus offers an opportunity for an all-round development of student's personality.

    Financial Assistance

    The Department offers three MERIT SCHOLARSHIPS and one SHRI NITIN RASIKLAL PARIKH MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP, to be awarded strictly on the basis of merit. There is also LATE PRINCIPAL R.D. GODBOLE award for a student standing first among those offering Nuclear Physics option. In addition, for financially needy students, it offers three FREE STUDENTSHIP to be awarded on the basis of need-cum-merit. These assistanceships are available to only those students who are enrolled in the department.


    The highway to Information Technology and access to the vast knowledge in the world has been made possible by acquiring the INTERNET Facility. The Physics Department has not only acquired this facility for itself, but has linked to various department and the Campus of the Mumbai University with right planning & efficiency.

    The facility has increased the scope of RESEARCH and accessibility to Research Papers in Journals, which may not have been possible to subscribe to in the past.

  • Facilities, Lab

    M.Sc. Laboratory Facilities

    M.Sc. laboratories are well equipped to carry out experiment in Electronics, Solid State Electronics, Solid State Physics, Nuclear Physics, Laser and Plasma Physics, Chemical Physics and Astronomy and Space Physics. Electronics is divided into two option i) Electronics - I [Microprocessors & Microcomputers] Students are encouraged to study the 8051 Microcontroller - Programming & Assembly and hand coding on the 8085 microprocessor kits. They also are exposed to numerical methods by programming & writing algorthms in PASCAL on PC?s. ii) Electronics - II [Electronic Communications] students have been exposed in the state of Art facilities for studying the fiber Optic and Microwave experiments. Above all and as a part of their curricular they do projects in the final year, which involves designing, fabrication and testing of new circuits. Solid State Electronics students are encouraged to fabricate simple devices such as Schottky barrier diodes, MOS, etc. and characterize them. High Temperature Furnace required for oxidation of Si and doping of impurities, vacuum thin film units, etc. are available for device fabrication. Structural characterization is emphasized for Solid State Physics students. X-ray diffractometer and the newly acquired FTIR is a major facility for them. Nuclear physics students are encouraged to examine nuclear decay scheme using alpha, beta and gamma ray spectroscopy. 1 K multichannel analyzer, scintillation and gas filled detectors, Compton spectrometer, Germanium detector and Coincidence Units are some of the major facilities for them. The Laser and Plasma Physics Laboratories has been recently set-up. The Department of Physics, University of Mumbai, together with Inter University Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics, Pune; Indian Institute of Geomagnetism, Mumbai; Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai; Bhabha Atomic Research Center, Mumbai and Nehru Planetarium, Mumbai, offer a course in Astronomy and Space physics, as an optional subject at the M.Sc. (Physics) since 1998. Recently a specialization of Materials Science has been introduced, which covers topics from conventional materials science to Nano-technology.

  • Courses




    A candidate for being eligible for admission to the M.Sc. Degree in Physics must have passed the Bachelor of Science degree examination with Physics as the major subject, or an examination of another University recognized as equivalent thereto. The University of Mumbai gives M.Sc. degree in Physics both by papers and by research.

    M.Sc. degree by research

    The M.Sc. degree in physics by research is pursued at a few centres in the University including the University Department of Physics. This is a research programme and requires an active isssnteraction between the student andguide. The admission procedure is not standardized to the extent of the M.Sc.degree course by papers. Some information and guidelines about thisprogramme are however furnished in Section II.2. For further information concerning this programme, the interested candidate should refer the pamphlet no. 175 of the University of Mumbai and check with various post graduate centres where M.Sc. (by research) prgramme is pursued.

    M.Sc. degree by papers

    The M.Sc. degree course in physics by papers is of two year duration.The first and second year are respectively termed M.Sc. Part-I and Part-II. This course is a joint effort of the University Department of Physics and some of the affiliated Colleges of the University which are recognized by the University for imparting instructions at the Master's Degree level in physics. A detailed list of these colleges/institutions is given in Section II.3.C. The M.Sc. physics theory course is taught at present at two centres :(1) University Department of Physics, Vidyanagari Campus, Mumbai-400 098and (2) Institute of Science, Madam Cama Road, Mumbai-400 032. Thelectures at the latter centre are meant only for the students enrolled in the Institute of Science. All the other students joining the University Departmentof Physics as well as other recognized colleges undergo the lecture course arranged by the University Department of Physics and held at the Vidyanagari Campus of the University of Mumbai.The students enrolled in the /Colleges/Institutions carry out their practicals/experiments in their respective places of enrollment. This practicals course programme is arranged by these institutions independently and separately of the theory course lecture programme announced by the University Department of Physics.To summarize: The students enrolled in the University Department and Colleges/Institutions other than Institute of Science have their theory organized by the University Department of Physics and theory classes held at the Vidyanagari Campus of the University. The practicals programme is organized and conducted by respective colleges/institutions where the student is enrolled.

    M.Sc. by research

    M.Sc. course by research is of minimum two year duration i.e. only after completing this period a candidate can submit his M.Sc. thesis for evaluation. (For more details see Pamphlet No. 175 of University of Mumbai). The student enrolling for M.Sc. by research in the subject of Physics is required to pass separately obtaining at least 55% marks in Papers I and II listed in section II.3.A before he can submit his dissertation for the award of the Master's degree by research in Physics. The Department generally admits students, depending on the number of vacancies available, for M.Sc. by research after the admission by papers for that particular year is over. For information of admission to other postgraduate centres (viz. various colleges/institutions) for M.Sc. (by Research), respective colleges/institutions may be contacted directly.

    B. Admission

    The procedure for enrollment of candidates to the M.Sc. Physics course (by papers) is as follows :

    i)The application form for admission to the course can be had from the office of the Registrar, University of Mumbai, Vidyanagari Campus, Santacruz (East), Bombay-400 098 or Fort, Mumbai-400 032, along with a copy of the brochure on payment of Rs.50/-. The application form carry serial numbers. Any form not so numbered will not be accepted by the department. While filling up the application form for admission, student should go through the brochure carefully and fill up the application form for admission according to the instructions mentioned therein.

    ii)The application forms duly filled in and signed and accompanied by the originals as well as certified copies of statement of marks, caste certificate, in case of SC/ST/DT/NT/BC, SBC and OBC etc. candidates, must be submitted to the staff-in-charge of the admissions during the period specified for the purpose on the notice board in the department. Incomplete application without mark sheet, caste certificate issued by competent authority etc. will be rejected.

    iii) a) No individual intimation will be sent to candidates selected for admission including those who are from other universities. The list of students selected for admission to the course will be put up on the notice board of the Department. Generally three such admission lists based on merit are displayed one after the other in a short interval of time.

    b) The candidates should clearly indicate their choice of the optional subjects at the time of admission at Part-I level, the college/institution, etc. in the application in order of preference. The same will be considered and allotted strictly on the basis of merit and subject to availability. Once the candidate accepts the optional subject allotted, as per the rule currently in force no change of optional subject shall be allowed thereafter.

    c) In case some candidates do not take admission, the vacant seats in various options/institutions from a specific merit list, will be filled as follows : Only those candidates from that particular list who have taken admission but have not been able to secure their priority option/institution could apply for change of option/institution immediately but before the last date of payment of fees corresponding to that particular merit list. Depending upon availability of option/institution desired, they may be granted the requested change in order of merit.

    d) If a candidate indicates only one choice for the optional subject at the time of Part-I admission and/or only one college/institution, then the candidate will be considered only for the asked option and/or college/institution and in one merit list only. Further clarification on this can be had from the staff-in-charge of the admissions.

    iv) The selection of candidates would be strictly on merit basis within each category.

    v) For the students from University of Mumbai, only the marks obtained by the candidate in Physics at the third year B.Sc. examination of the university will be considered for deciding merit for admission to the M.Sc. course in Physics. [Thus the merit list will be prepared on the third year B.Sc. marks in Physics only]. For those candidates who have passed the B.Sc. examination at the second attempt there will be a reduction of 3% of marks.


    vi) a) Five seats are reserved for students coming from other Universities.

    b) For applicants from Universities other than University of Mumbai there will be a reduction of 10% of marks while admitting such candidates in the University.


    c)A candidate belonging to University other than the University of Mumbai should have physics as one of the major subjects at the third year of the B.Sc degree course. For the purpose of calculating the percentage for admission such a candidate only the marks obtained in the subject of physics at all the three years of B.Sc. will be taken into account. These candidates are required to produce the original mark sheets of all the three years along with their applications form duly filled in and signed and accompanied by certified copies of mark sheets of all the three years indicating clearly the marks obtained, along with the maximum marks possible, in the subject of physics each year. An application without this information will be considered incomplete.

    d) Applicants from other universities are required to submit a provisional certificate of eligibility while enrolling for the course. This provisional eligibility certificate can be obtained from the Registrar,Eligibility Section of University of Mumbai, Ranade Bhavan, Vidyanagari, Mumbai-400 098 after submitting the application and necessary remittance.

    vii) The candidate selected for admission to the M.Sc. Part I Physics course will have to pay the tuition fees as well as the fees for registration as a post- graduate student, as notified in the list of selected candidates put up on the notice board of the Department. The fee will have to be paid on or before the last date mentioned in the list, failing which the candidate will forfeit his/her claim to the seat allotted in the list.

    viii) A candidate who fails to avail of the admission offered to him/her before the last date as mentioned in the list of selected candidates will not be considered for a seat in the second or subsequent list.

    ix) The vacancies that may arise on account of the selected candidates not availing themselves of the admission before the last date or those who might withdraw their admission will be notified through subsequent announcements in the Department and students would be chosen from the merit-based waiting list prepared after the third list. Those who are so selected for admission will have to pay the tuition & registration fees on or before the date indicated to them while admission is granted, failing which they will forfeit claim of admission to the course and the same will be offered to the next deserving candidate on the merit-based waiting list.


    x) The quotas for reservation in admissions in the course prescribed for different categories are :

    a) Scheduled Caste & Scheduled Caste converts to Buddhism. - 13%

    b) Scheduled Tribes - 07%

    c) Domadic Tribes (D.T.) - 2.5%

    d) Vimukta Jati (V.J.) - 03%

    We dream it would become an Invention factory.

    1.Materials: Synthesis and Processing:

    Ion Implanter

    Ionbeam modification of materials is a major experimental facility. The Department has a high current ion  implanter which is rare of its kind. It can provide mass analyzed ion beams of energy 30 keV of any species ranging from hydrogen to uranium. We now have facilities for synthesizing specific materials in thin films form. These include vacuum evaporation, electron beam, and plasma deposition. Besides this Department also have conventional furnace up to 1200 0C for oxidation and diffusion. Crystal growth is one of the thrust areas. The Department has been doing excellent work in this field. In fact, Department has designed and developed the Vertical Directional Solidification (VDS) technique for crystal growth which is novel, simpler, a method that does not need any seed.

    X-ray Diffractometer:

    CN2005 ( Regaku Miniflex ) is an semi automated X-ray diffractometer. It is useful in qualitative analysis of substances, particularly crystalline materials.. This compact diffractometer system comprises of three main components;

    (i) High voltage generator (30 keV), with X-ray tube (1kW) in the tube shield.

    (ii) Goniometer Unit; Measurable angular range: +30 ~ + 1600 (2q)

    (iii) Scanning speed: o/min, 2o/min at 50 Hz.

    (iv) Counter: A sealed proportional counter (SPC-20)

    Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR):

    The covalent bond between the atoms in molecules is not perfectly rigid and it is flexible to some extent. Hence the vibrational motions are observed in molecules. After absorbing infrared radiation molecules vibrate at different modes, giving rise to closely packed absorption bands. Various bands present in IR spectrum will correspond to the characteristics functional groups and bonds. Thus IR spectroscopy is the most powerful technique to analyze highly specialized materials. We have acquired Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR)[JASCO FT/IR  610] Spectrometer. This model has a very large frequency range (6700 cm-1 to 350 cm-1) and very useful for IR characterization of the materials.

    LCR Meter:

    HP 4284A (20 Hz to 1MHz) is capacitance meter that can measure the capacitance in the ranges of 0.01 nF to 9.99999 F. Voltage to the test sample can be given internally. This instrument is used extensively in semiconductor device characterization e.g. Shottky diode and MOS

    Hall Measurement System (HMS):

    HMS characterizes the electronic transport properties of materials over a wide range of temperature and magnetic field. All manner of semi conducting material may be characterized in this system. This system include electromagnet-based configuration that provide field strengths to about 10 kG at the sample. Operation to temperatures as low as 77 K is possible with LN2.

    Rapid Thermal Annealing (RTA) System:Rapid Thermal Annealing (RTA) is one of the important techniques used in the processing and study of semiconductor materials. A complete stand-alone microprocessor controlled RTA system has been designed and fabricated at the Department of Physics, University of Mumbai by A.M.Narsale, M.M.Belakar, K.V.Sukhatankar, under an NSC/UGC project.

    PC Based I-V Measurement Setup:

    A low cost PC based system to measure, record and plot Current-Voltage (I-V) characteristics of the semiconductor samples has been designed and developed in the Department. The system consists of a Programmable Voltage Source, Current to Voltage Converter and Data Acquisition System. The applied voltage can be varied upto ?20 Volts in the step voltage of ?10 mV. The current can be measured in four different ranges from 10 mA to 10 mA with current resolution 5 nA. User-friendly software written in Turbo C in an interactive mode stores the I-V data and plot it either simultaneously or later when required. The system has excellent accuracy, repeatability and reliability.
    Plasma Discharge Cleaning System:

    From the DAE-BRNS grants, the facility for ultra high vacuum system for plasma discharge cleaning was fabricated. Plasma assisted etching of metal surfaces in UHV clean environment is investigated. Further, the studies on plasma induced compound layer formation are in progress.

    Surface Physics :

    The Surface Physics laboratory consists of Ultra High Vacuum (UHV) chamber with a thin film deposition unit and Perkin Elmer's Low Energy Electron Diffraction (LEED) and work function measurement set up for surface analysis. Many parts of this unit are fabricated indigenously. The ultra high vacuum is produced using Sputter Ion pump (Varian model Picotorr 350) which is capable of achieving vacuum of 10-10 torr. The chamber is so designed so that additional surface analytical techniques can be incorporated in the system. The analytical unit consists of LEED apparatus for surface analysis and a view port from where the LEED patterns can be photographed. We have also designed and fabricated the sample manipulator and sample holder capable of x,y,z and tilt motion with heating facility using electron bombardment technique. Besides, an electron beam retarding technique has been developed by us in conjunction with LEED optics to determine change in work function of the substrate on adsorption. We study the deposition of transition metals [W(110)] and semiconductor [Si(111)] with adsorption of rare earths on adsorbates at various thicknesses. Change in work function with temperatures at various coverages and the corresponding changes in crystal structures by LEED are noted by us.
    Mossbauer Spectrometer:A conventional 57Fe source based Mossbuer spectrometer available in Transmission mode. Conversion Electron Mossbauer Spectrometer is under development.

    Jandel Four Point probe:Resistivity measurements of wide range of samples from metallic to semiconducting can be carried out. .

    Contribution of theDepartment of Physics, University of Mumbaiin the field of Surface Modification of Materials by Ion Beams

    Department of Physics of the University of Mumbai has a strong research group working in the field of Novel Materials. The Department strength lies in the field of Ion Implantation, which was established in the early seventies and the Department has contributed significantly in this field [1].

    The Department has focused on using ion beams to develop device grade materials and study fundamental aspects of radiation damage. Our unique programmes of Solid State Electronics and Solid State Physics have led us to embark upon new materials useful for nano-scale devices made by ion beam, chemical and other techniques.

    Pioneering work on Ion Implantation in India: Department of Physics, under the leadership of Late Professor M. C. Joshi, took pioneering efforts in Developing Ion Implantation facility in early seventies and has been in the forefront in studying different aspects of ion beam modifications of materials. The Department ion implanter was indigenously built (at BARC and modified in the Department of Physics) and although old now, it has unique characteristics such as high current ion beam and good resolving power. It can deliver ion beams of any element from hydrogen to uranium and has a Resolving power of 1 in 500. For gaseous species the currents are up-to 100 ?A.

    Taking advantage of high current capability, university scientists concentrated on forming oxide, nitride and oxy-nitride layers on silicon using ion implantation, which were shown to be useful in forming MOS structure [2 and references therein].

    Professor M. C. Joshi
    [Ref. 1] The IR transmission spectra of Si samples implanted with various doses of (16O2)+ ions at 30 kV: curve A, 1 X 1016 ions cm-2; curve B, 2.5 X 1016 ions cm-2; curve C, 1?1017 ions cm-2, curve E, 1?1018 ions cm-2.[Ref. 2]

    Doping in amorphous semiconductor was carried out for the applications to Solar Cells [3]. In basic physics area, it was shown using Hall effect that (Ec - 0.55) eV level is formed using Fe implantations in silicon [4]. Radiation damage studies on Silicon were carried out and mechanism of dislocation network created by ion irradiation was studied [5]. Radiation induced redistribution of atoms was studied [6]. Inverse Kirkindal effect was observed and interpreted using model simulation [7]. Out-diffusion and segregation due to ion beam irradiation have been reported [8]. Mechanism of ion beam mixing has been studied in details [9]. Ion beam modification on metals has been vigorously pursued in the University. Meta-stable phase formation and radiation induced phase transformations have been studied [10]. Quasi-crystal formation by ion beam mixing [11] and improvement in quality of diamond films were demonstrated [12].

    [Ref. 12] LASER Raman spectra of diamond films on WC-Co tool bit. Unirradiated and irradiated with 100 MeV 127I at dose 5 x 1013ions/cm2[Ref.12] (a and b) SEM images of diamond film

    Meta-stable nitrogen-rich gamma and epsilon nitrides on steel surfaces have been formed [13]. Ion beam induced amorphization and meta-stable phase formation were understood based on a modelduetoMeidema[14]. Applications of ion beams to produce corrosion and wear resistant surfaces have been demonstrated [15 and references therein]. Spin orientation of metallic glasses have been studied using Mossbauer spectroscopy [16]. Radiation induced effects on the conduction mechanism of GaAs has been studied after MeV ion irradiation of Si+ and Sn+ ions [17]. Titanium and Vanadium silicides have been formed by ion implantation [18] Recently the Department scientists have been focusing on using ion beam methods to form device grade nano-phase materials [19] and Iron-slilcide clusters in Si [20].

    International Recognition: Our contribution to the field of ion implantation is internationally recognized. One of our scientists was invited at the Fifteenth International Conference on Accelerators and their Industrial Applications held in Denton, Texas, USA held during October 1998. One of the faculty members has an Indo-Italian collaborative project funded by DST and Italian Foreign Ministry. Many faculty members have contributed in different International conferences on Ion beam modifications and related areas.

    Indigenous Development: University has developed indigenously Low Energy Electron Diffraction system, which is being used to study work functions of different metals [21]. Plasma system has been developed and being used for basic plasma studies and surface modifications [22]. Low cost Mossbauer spectrometer has been developed using a microprocessor kit [19]. Many other instruments and vacuum systems are developed in-house. University scientists have indigenously developed a vertical gradient type crystal growth set up [23]. The set up was used to grow single crystals of InSb, GaSb etc.

    Recognition by Peers on Indigenous Development: Rapid Thermal annealing system developed by the University Scientists appeared on the cover page of a recent Physics News published by IPA [24, 25].
