Central Research Facility Centre(CRFC) has started functioning since 2012.Various Research facilities have been created for the research & consultancy work.These include Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (Carl Zeiss), Multi Target Sputtering System (Moorfield Nanotechnolgy), 3-Axis Laser System for Surface Texturing (Markolaser), SEM/EDS (Hitachi 3600N), Nanomechanical system (Hysitron TI Premier), SmartLab X-Ray Diffractometer (Rigaku), Litesizer™ 500 Particle Analyzer, MCR 102 Rheometer, Planetary – Mill pulverisette 5, TGA/DSC, Raman Spectroscope (Renishaw), CHNS Analyzer, ShakeTable. In addition to this, WDXRF is under installation and Commissioning and AFM is under purchase process.
CRFC houses variety of major analytical instruments which are operated and maintained by a dedicated and qualified group of Scientists and Engineers. CRFC has a vision
“To be one of the Leading Analytical Instrument Facility Center at National Level".
The main objectives of CRFC are:
- To provide facility of analysis in R&D using Sophisticated Instruments.
- To organize workshops on the use and application of various Sophisticated Instruments for researchers belonging to Universities, Industries and Private sector.
- To develop new measurement/analytical techniques by research in various areas of Science, Technology and Engineering.
