Department of Physics

About the Department

The Department of Physics of Basirhat College started its journey in the year 1969. Since its inception it remains one of the most rich and productive departments of the college. The faculty consists of experienced teachers who are acknowledged for their contribution to the field of teaching and research in Physics.

The department has a good and up to date laboratory for undergraduate teaching. The departmental library has good collection of text and reference books. Interactive classroom teaching is going to be introduced.

Head of the Department : Dr. Mahuya Chakraborty



Dr. Raghu Nath Bera, Asst. Prof., M.Sc., Ph.D.

Raghu Nath Bera received his M. Sc. Degree in physics in 1993 from Vidyasagar University with first class first. He did his Ph. D. on organic semiconductors from Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science in 1999. From 2000 -2002 he was an STA Fellow in Dr M Tokumoto's group at Nanotechnology Research Institute, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Japan. From 2002-2003 he was also a Postdoctoral Fellow in Dr K Yase's group at Photonics Research Institute, AIST, Japan. In these three years he worked on OLED and organic solar cells. In 2003 he moved to UK as a Postdoctoral Fellow to work with Prof I D W Samuel (University of St Andrews) and Prof P L Burn ( University of Oxford). In UK he was involved in developing highly efficient OLED until 2005. He joined in Basirhat College in 2006. He was also a Visiting Scientist in 2010 at Tokyo Institute of Technology, National Defense Academy and Photonics Research Institute, Japan. Currently his research interest is organic semiconductors and nanomaterials.

Dr. Purnendu Chakraborty, Asst. Prof., M. Sc. Ph.D.
