         The Center for Lasers and Photonics (CELP) is an interdisciplinary center of excellence that combines cutting-edge technology from engineering and theoretical advances in science to create new horizons in the field of photonics science and engineering. The faculty in CELP belong to six different parent departments (EE, ME, AE, PHY, CY, and CE) and pursue research in the fields of nanobiophotonics, ultrafast optics, quantum optics and related fields. The Center has research infrastructure worth several crores funded by agencies such as DST, DRDO, CSIR, MHRD etc.

          Three PG programmes offered at CELP: PhD , M.Tech and M.S(Research) in Photonics Science and Engineering Programme (PSEP). The aim of PSEP is to train engineers/scientists from diverse background in interdisciplinary activities in photonics and related areas. For details, please visit our admission webpage.

         Some of the projects that are currently pursued by CELP students are: Vein imaging, cancerous cell detection, LiDar systems, semiconductor lasers, chaos in fibers, quantum cryptography, photonic crystals, fibre lasers, and particle imaging.

         The department coordinates with institute in placement activities for M.Tech and PhD students. Our alumni are working in prestigious organizations such as DRDO, BEL, MathWorks etc. Many of our alumni have chosen to pursue PhD in reputed international and national universities.
