The Institute Of Physics, Bhubaneswar is an autonomous research institution funded jointly by the Department Of Atomic Energy (DAE) and the Government of Odisha. The Institute was officially established in 1972 by the Government of Orissa, and registered in 1972 as a registered society under societies Registration Act 1860.

The management of affairs of the Institute is vested in a Governing Council consisting of an eminent Scientist nominated as its Chairman, the Director of the Institute and members nominated by the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) and the Government of Orissa. The Registrar of the Institute functions as its Secretary. The Institute receives major part of its financial support from the Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India, and a token support from the Government of Orissa. The Institute also receives funds from other government agencies (like CSIR and U.G.C) to finance specific research projects.

Pre-Doctoral Programme

The predoctoral programme is aimed at imparting a broad based education in advanced physics and reserach methodology. It is also planned that it will help a student not only in his/her doctoral reserach, but also enable him/her to become a good physics teacher irrespective of whether or not he/she takes up doctoral reserach. Students are selected for admission to the Pre-doctoral programme on the basis of performance in both the written JEST and oral test. The written test is common entrance test JEST for many Institutes in India.The students for the oral test are selected from the performance in JEST.The course runs from August to June every year leading to a Diploma in Advanced Physics awarded by the Institute.
