Current technological innovations are, to a large extent, connected to materials. Consequently, innovative research tends to seek the characterization of materials through advanced techniques. Material characterization forms the basis for understanding the physical and chemical properties of a material, leading to its potential applications in various domains of science and technology.

Appropriately, the Centre is well equipped with several advanced equipments under a single roof, called Sophisticated Instrumentation Facility (SIF) lab.  The SIF lab houses several spectroscopic, chromatographic, microscopic and thermal instruments as detailed below. It has well experienced operators and subject experts adding value to the facility. This facility is extended to external users.

Following is a representative list of the industries, and research and academic institutes where the Centre has extended its services in the recent past.
