Gamma rays’ spectroscopy lab has been established in the department of Physics at Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University with the financial assistance of about twenty lakh rupees from Department of Science & Technology, New Delhi during 2014-17. It has been setup with an aim of creating the state of art experimental facilities for research in the thrust area of Nuclear/Radiation Physics. The laboratory is equipped with portable scintillator detector imported from Amptec Inc., USA and radioactive source from BRIT, Mumbai. Quarterly dose monitoring services were hired from Ultra-Tech Lab. Pvt. Ltd. (recommended and approved lab by BARC). The experiments with high strength radioactive source were performed under the supervision and monitoring of Radiation Safety Officer. The functioning of the research lab is in accordance with the rules and regulations of Atomic Energy Regulatory Board, Mumbai. Sample synthesis facilities are also available in the lab for preparing noble compositions with the help of Analytical grade chemicals.
