The Department of Physics has very good infrastructure with spacious laboratory, library and research center recognized by VTU (approved in the year 2016). Since then the research center has grown to provide various sample preparation and data characterization facility to the faculty members, research scholars and the students.
Our R & D center has LCR meter facility with accuracy and versatility which makes this precision instruments the ideal choice for many different tasks and applications including passive component design, dielectric material testing and resonant frequency characterization. The Precision Impedance Analyzer is therefore ideal for many demanding tasks. It provides
Precise high frequency impedance measurements
- Clear graphic displays
- Impedance (Z)
- Phase angle (θ)
- Capacitance (C)
- Dissipation factor (D)
- Inductance (L)
- Quality factor (Q)
- Resistance (R)
- Conductance (G)
- Admittance (Y)
Engineers need to evaluate component characteristics at high frequencies with very high levels of accuracy. Hence the Department of Physics extends this facility to our college students and faculty members at free of cost and reasonable rates for outsiders.
