The Department of Physics started its journey from the very beginning of the college in 1986, for the general course. The department is offering only general Physics curriculum for all semesters under the syllabi of the University of Calcutta. The department is led by two distinguished young teachers, Dr. Putul Malla Chowdhury, and Dr. Pradip Thakur. The departmental laboratory is well equipped by the practical instruments of all branches of physics like mechanics, electronics, electrical, optics etc.

The department is not only providing the traditional syllabi based learning but also provide research and Ph.D. facilities. Both teachers have well recognised research experiences. Research area of Dr. Putul Malla Chowdhury includes investigation of different properties of perovskite type oxides, nano materials. Also, she is interested in the study of magnetocaloric effect of ising type mixed spin system by montecarlo simulation. The department has a “Green Energy Research Lab” which is led by Dr. Pradip Thakur. Dr. Pradip Thakur has two ongoing major research projects funded by Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), ANRF, Govt. of India. Presently the department has three Ph.D. scholars (Research Scholars) working under the supervision of Dr. Pradip Thakur and the scholars are registered in CU. Thus, the students are continuously encouraged to read, participate in extracurricular activities, workshops, competitions and more over some hand on research activities and future research ideas.

One Day Research Training Program on 4th January, 2023 

The programme was organized under the under Scientific Social Responsibility (SSR) Policy of Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB), Govt. of India. The fund was sponsored by the SERB through the sanctioned research project entitled “Development of electroactive polymer nanocomposites based self-charged photo-power cells: A novel and simple approach towards clean energy generation and storage” of Dr. Pradip Thakur, Principal Investigator, Department of Physics, Netaji Nagar College for Women.

The key objective of this programme was to discuss some critical concepts and fundamental understanding of the state-of the-art Green Energy Research works. The programme offered learning of nanoscale properties and self-charged power cell design and development including fabrications the device to experimental techniques. Their intended use in real life application also explained. The topics focus on basics, advances and applications to benefit people from academic and research communities associated with Science and Engineering.
