Research Groups

Following is the list of Research Groups of our department

Groups Detail
 
Electronics Group

Electronics is the branch of physics, engineering and technology dealing with electrical circuits that involve active electrical components such as vacuum tubes, transistors, diodes and integrated circuits, and associated passive interconnection technologies. The nonlinear behavior of active components and their ability to control electron flows makes amplification of weak signals possible and is usually applied to information and signal processing. Similarly, the ability of electronic devices to act as switches makes digital information processing possible. Interconnection technologies such as circuit boards, electronics packaging technology, and other varied forms of communication infrastructure complete circuit functionality and transform the mixed components into a working system.

High Energy Physics Group

Existing faculty at CIIT Islamabad in the group of High Energy Physics & Cosmology (HEP&C) and Ultra Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions (URHIC) consists of four foreign professors, two associate professors, one assistant professor, one advisor and one lecturer. The group is working on problems involving R-parity violation phenomenology in Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM), Non-Standard Electroweak interactions and their implication in Neutrino Physics, CP-violation, CKM-matrix elements, Cosmological Inflation and Recent Inflationary Models, Cosmological Constant Primordial Nucleosynthesis, Finite Temperature Field Theory, Relativistic Nuclear-Nuclear collisions and Dark Energy. An important component of this group is working experimental problems of Ultra Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions (URHIC) affiliated with the Alice of CERN.

Materials Science Group

Materials play an important role in our daily life from very simple use to hi-tech applications. The research group at CIIT is engaged in synthesis and characterization of a wide range of advanced materials to cope with the academic erudition and impending applications. Synthesis approaches include both solid state reaction methods and preparation by wet chemistry. Materials under investigation include but not limited to metals, semiconductors, superconductors, ceramics and composites. These are synthesized in bulk, thin films, nanoparticles and nanostructures. Thermo physical properties include structural analysis, thermoelectricity, thermal diffusivity, heat capacity, thermal conductivity, dielectric spectroscopy, electrical resistivity, magnetic polarizability & susceptibility, magneto electrical conductivity and optical spectroscopy.

Nuclear and Radiation Physics Group

The Radiation Physics Laboratory was established in 2007 in the Department of Physics, CIIT, Islamabad under the funding of Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST). The main objective of the RPL was to pursue the research and development work first at the CIIT level and then strengthening of research infrastructure for science and technological development by making collaborations with different research institutes/universities of the country. Therefore, a well-equipped and standard research laboratory was established for taking research and development work in the field of Radiation Physics and its related subjects.

Plasma Physics Group

Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPL) works to advance understanding of the non-thermal Plasmas by developing and responding to major contemporary issues within low temperature plasma physics and atomic and molecular physics. Low-temperature plasmas have a huge range of technological and medical applications. These include plasma etching for semiconductor chip manufacture, plasma deposition (e.g. for solar cells or protective coatings), plasma TVs and new medical applications (e.g. sterilization, biocompatible materials).

Semiconductor and Nano Technology Group

The Department of Physics has a very strong focus on the areas of condensed matter physics and material science, with special emphasis on nanoscaled materials and their applications. There are several established research groups with about 15 PhD holders and well-equipped laboratories actively engaged in working on semiconducting, magnetic and multifunctional materials. The research is fundamental as well as application oriented with the objective of developing micro and nanosized sensors for use in biomedicine and detection of environmental hazards. Another important area of research is the development of alternative energy sources such as solar cells, hydrogen storage materials etc.
