The Thin Film laboratory was initiated in this department in end 2004. This laboratory is totally devoted to the synthesis and characterization of thin films deposited by various methods for device applications.  Backed by the excellent manpower and infrastructure, this laboratory has set its mark in frontline areas like: development of sensors and associated instrumentation, synthesizing materials with novel properties for device applications. 

Apart from the above, this group is associated with industries in India to develop marketable prototypes of some useful gadgets for the industries using toxic gases. Additionally, this laboratory caters the need of industrial houses and research centers by extending the services of several in-house instruments having multi-disciplinary utility. Research fellows of this group are highly placed in academic (in India and abroad) and industries after the completion of their Ph.D. programme.
