Forensic Physics is the application of physics for purposes of civil or criminal law. Forensic Physics has traditionally involved the measurement of density(soil & glass examination), Refractive index of materials and birefringence for fiber analysis.
The material exhibits which are obtained at the scene of crime are examined of this department. Besides comparative studies of various impressions and marks of tools, etc. used in commission of crime are also made in this department. Determination of forced engine or chassis marks or restoration of an erased number upon metallic dates are also determined by the faculty of this department. Analysis of paint & glass articles, stamp impressions can be examined in this department.
Ballistics is the branch of forensic physics. It may be stated that ballistic expert is the only person who ascertains whether a particular firearm was used or not while committing a crime. He is also to examine the types of firearms and ammunitions used in commission of crime.
The department is involved in hands on training of different instruments. We organize guest lectures on various aspects of forensic physics to enhance the knowledge of the students. We have Air Guns, Research Microscope, spectometer, sound level meter, breathanalyzer metal detector, basic electronic instruments used for the application of Forensic Physics.
