 INFORMATION ON ACHIEVEMENTS

KU first University to have Ion Beam Facility

Kurukshetra University is set to earn a rare distinction as it is going to be the first University in India to house a unique National ‘Ion Beam Facility’. A research project “Ion Induced Growth and Engineering of Materials” worth Rupees 8.67 Crores has been sanctioned by DST, New Delhi to set up state-of-the-art ‘Low Energy Ion Accelerator’ with Dr. Sanjeev Aggarwal    as its Principal Investigator, Prof. Shyam Kumar, Prof. Nafa Singh, Dr. Annu Sharma (all from Department of Physics) and Dr. D. Kanjilal, Dr. Sundeep Chopra (both from IUAC, New Delhi) as its Co-Investigators to set up this facility for R & D at Department of Physics, Kurukshetra  University, Kurukshetra.

 

This National Facility at Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra will be the ‘First’ of its kind in any University in India. Once installed, this will work as a Central facility and users will be allowed to undertake a wide variety of research in various disciplines.

The other achievements of the Department are as under:
