                 Nearly 50% of the teachers are engaged in research activities like doing minor projects, publishing and guiding research scholars. Regular research guidance is given to all M.Phil. scholars. Fourteen staff members of our college are approved research guides. Nine research scholars have successfully completed their doctoral studies so far. Teachers are guiding PhD and M.Phil. scholars on part-time basis.

List Of Approved Guides - Recognized by Manonmaniam Sundaranar University, Tirunelveli.

In-charge: Dr. P.SELVARAJAN  M.Sc., M.Tech., Ph.D., PGDCA,

Assistant Professor in Physics

 

ABOUT THE CENTRE

      Crystal Growth Centre has been started functioning from 2004-2005 onwards in the Department of Physics, Aditanar College of Arts and Science, Tiruchendur.  The scholars in this centre concentrate on two main areas of  research namely   (i) Crystal Growth    and (ii) Nanoscience.  Some of the  facilities available in the Crystal Growth Centre are Furnace with temperature controller(Max. temperature reachable is 1200 oC), Two probe arrangement with temperature controller for measuring dielectric constant, loss and conductivity, LCR meter(Systronics make and Pacific make), Electronic balance,  pH meters, Hot plate magnetic stirrers, Microwave oven, Hot plates and ovens, Abbe’s refractometer, Digital multimeter for  measuring resistance (200 M W), He-Ne laser, Hydraulic press, Internet facility, Constant temperature bath and the like.
