Overview
The word physics comes from the Greek word ἡ φύσις "nature". Physics is the science of the natural world. It deals with matter, energy, and the fundamental forces that govern the interactions between particles. Physics covers a wide range of phenomena from the smallest subatomic particles to the largest galaxies. It is the study of forces and their impact on the environment. Modern physics connects ideas together about the laws of symmetry and conservation (energy, momentum, charge, and parity). The Department of Physics at the Acharya Institute of Technology is one of the largest and most diverse departments.

Conducting Polymer Composites
Electrically conducting polymers have grown very rapidly since the discovery that there is a very sharp increase in conductivity when intrinsically insulating organic conjugated polymers are doped. A great advantage of conductive polymers is that their chemical, electrical and physical properties can be tailored to the specific needs of their application. The increase in surface areatovolume ratio, which increases as the particles get smaller, leads to an increasing dominance of the behavior of atoms on the surface area of particle over that of those interior of the particle. Such a conducting nanopolymers like polypyrrole and polyaniline are blended with Nano metal oxides. This affects the properties of the particles when they are reacting with other particles. Such conducting behavior and their applications are studied in our R &D center. Because of the higher surface area of the nanoparticles, the interaction with the other particles within the mixture is more and this increases the strength, heat resistance, etc. and many factors do change for the mixture.
Adsorption Studies
Environmental pollution is a serious daytoday problem faced by the developing and the developed nations in the world. Today world is facing water pollution problem with heavy metals, this problem has led to the search of techniques and materials that are environment friendly and that can be use to remove heavy metals. In this context, our research group concentrating on adsorption process through nanotechnology as a water remediation method for the removal of heavy metals is an attractive method due to its ease of operation, economic viability.
Nano Medicine
Today, nanomaterials have been designed for a variety of biomedical and biotechnological applications. Which includes biosensors, enzyme encapsulation; neuronal nanotechnology, drug delivery. Presently our research group is focused on designing natural products based nano conjugates which are capable of multiple, simultaneous activities such as tumortargeting, active sensing, diagnostics, and the delivery of drugs or imaging contrast agents.
Photochemical Treatment Of Waste Water
Functionalized metal oxide nanostructures have been employed as photo catalyst for removal of toxic organic and inorganic contaminates present in waste water by photochemical treatment. Presently our research group is concentrating on developing new, stable, low cost, and reusable highly photoactive systems for wastewater treatment.
Mechano Chemistry for OrganicInorganic Hybrid Materials
Organic–inorganic hybrid materials are extensively used for removal of heavy metal ions and organic pollutants presented in waste water. At present our research group is interested in developing new high surface area, low cost, stable, reusable and high adsorption capacity organicinorganic hybrid systems via mechanochemical approach for waste water purification.
Department of Mathematics
Graph Theory
One of the most active fields of current research in mathematics is the theory of graphs. Graph Theory is gaining an unprecedented status and importance in the field of mathematics due to its everincreasing applicability in solving complex reallife problems providing engineering and technology driven solutions to them. It also has applications in the field of behavioral and social sciences. Major areas of graph theory where research is conducted in our R&D center are signed graphs, product graphs, Hamiltonian laceability in graphs, distance in graph, domination in graphs. Hamiltonian laceability and domination concepts find many applications in interconnection of computer networks, in improving the performance of computer architecture, overcoming communication link failure, Network Design etc. Concept distance in graph is used in facility location problems and telecommunication networks. While locating some emergency services in a region we try to minimize distance from each location to the service station. Thirteen researchers are working in this area.
Differential Geometry
Differential geometry is a discipline that uses techniques of differential calculus, integral calculus, linear algebra and multilinear algebra to study problems in geometry. The theory of plane, space curves and surfaces in threedimensional Euclidean space forms the basis for development of differential geometry. In recent past differential geometry has grown into a field concerned more generally with the geometric structures on differentiable manifolds. Differential geometry has mainly two branches viz. Contact geometry and Finsler Geometry. At our R&D centre, research activity is in progress by six researchers on submanifolds, hyper surfaces in Contact Geometry and Finsler space , metric in Finsler Geometry. Both Contact and Finsler Geometry have many applications in the field of General theory of relativity, digital signal processing, control theory, image processing and computeraided geometric design.
Fluid Mechanics
Fluid mechanics is the branch of physics which involves the study of fluids (liquids, gases, and plasmas) and the forces on them. Fluid mechanics can be divided into fluid statics, the study of fluids at rest; and fluid dynamics, the study of the effect of forces on fluid motion. Fluid mechanics plays a fundamental role in the applications to aeronautics, hydraulics, heat and mass transfer etc., also this subject is highly relevant in domains such as chemical, metallurgical, biological and ecological engineering. In fluid mechanics, dusty fluid is mixture of fluid and fine dust particles. The study of boundary layer flow of dusty fluid over a stretching surface is one of thrust areas of current research. This study finds applications over a broad spectrum of science and engineering disciplines. The other area of fluid mechanics is Bio fluids, which describes the behavior of pollutants in the unsaturated and saturated soil zones. Two Researchers are working in this area.
Number Theory
Number Theory is the mathematics of integers. It is a subset of the integers, the primes, that are particularly important in Computer science. the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, states that every positive integer can be uniquely written as a product of primes. Factoring a positive integer into primes is a central problem in number theory. Fermat, Euler, and many other mathematicians devised imaginative factorization algorithms. Using the best known techniques, one can easily find primes for large numbers; factorizing integers with the same number of digits are beyond our most powerful computers. One of the most important applications of number theory to computer science is in the area of cryptography. Cryptography is the practice of hiding information, converting some secret information to not readable texts. Applications of cryptography include military information transmission, computer passwords, electronic commerce, and others. Congruence’s can be used to develop various types of ciphers. Current publickey cipher systems, the RSA algorithm for example, use elementary ideas from number theory. The security of the cipher system depends on the assumption that the factorization of composite numbers with large prime factors is prohibitively time consuming. One faculty is working in this area.
Semi Group Theory
Semi group is one of algebraic structures which play a prominent role in Mathematics with wide range of applications such as Theoretical Physics, Computer Science, Control Engineering, Information Science, Coding Theory, Graph Theory, Topological Spaces. It also has applications in Formal Languages, Biology, Automata and Sociology. Major areas of Semi group theory in which research is being conducted by one researcher at our R & D centre are  semi groups,  ideals of semi groups, Fuzzy algebraic structures such as Fuzzy  semi groups, Fuzzy  ideals of Fuzzy  semi groups etc.
Mathematical Analysis
It is a branch of mathematics that includes theories of differentiation, integration, measure, limits, infinite series, and analytic functions. These theories are usually studied in the context of real & complex numbers and functions. Analysis evolved from calculus, which involves the elementary concepts and techniques of analysis. Analysis may be distinguished from geometry; however, it can be applied to any space of mathematical objects that has a definition of nearness (a topological space) or specific distances between objects (a metric space). Inequalities play an imperative role in almost all branches of mathematics and have broadly distinguished applications. Almost all calculations deal with some kind of approximations and the origin of approximations are nothing but an inequality. So, the more we sharpen the inequalities, the better will be the corresponding approximation Therefore, discovering the new inequalities, sharpening and as well as extending the old inequalities helps us to estimate and accurate our calculations. Inequalities problems have undergone a remarkable development in both pure and applied mathematics as well in mechanics, engineering sciences and all areas which include approximations. One faculty is working in this area.
Thermoelasticity
Thermoelasticity, deals with the interaction of temperature and strain fields in an elastic solid. Scientists use their understanding of thermoelasticity to design materials and objects that can withstand fluctuations in temperature without breaking. All materials that are elastic expand when heated and contract when cooled. The expansion that is described by thermoelasticity formulas is caused by an increase in the movement of the atoms in the material. These atoms remain linked to each other as solid heats but the molecular bonds grow in size, allowing the atoms to move away from each other and causing the material to grow. Conversely, when a material is cooled, the atoms move less and the bonds pull them closer to each other. This theory has great practical utility in several new areas of engineering and technology like acoustics, aeronautics, chemical and nuclear engineering. During past four decades, the theory has seen rapid progress and now it is of one of the major disciplines of continuum mechanics wherein there is a vast scope for theoretical and practical research. One faculty is working in this area.
Extreme Value Theory
The central limit theorems deal with convergence of the normalized sum of a large number of independent and identically distributed random variables. Analogous to these, there are limiting distribution results for normalized partial maxima, minima, order statistics, spacings, records and related random variables. Extreme value theory looks at methods to describe and understand quantifiable rare events which include distributions having heavy tails. Extremes are important in many fields such as engineering, insurance, hydrology, strength of materials, earthquake accelerations, failure of structural systems, etc. One faculty is working in this area.
