Nano Science Lab
The Nano Science Laboratory (NSL) was nucleated in 2005 with the endeavors of a small group of research scholars lead by Dr. Ramesh Chandra. With the advent of time, gradual addition of experimental facilities like deposition of single layer / multi layers films of metals, insulators, semiconductors and alloys by DC/RF Magnetron sputtering, Pulse Laser Deposition, Thermal evaporation and Spin Coating fostered the research work at NSL. Today NSL, well equipped with the sophisticated scientific instruments stands tall among the most promising research laboratories in the country. We have successfully developed and synthesized various kinds of coatings for esteemed organizations like DST, DRDO, CSIR, IRDE, DRDE, and CPRI etc.

Thin Film Lab
TFL has established facilities for depositing films of metals, insulators, semiconductors and alloys in amorphous as well as polycrystalline and single crystal form by thermal evaporation, sputtering (dc-, rf-magnetron and ion-beam), glow discharge, ion plating, electrolysis, solution growth, spray pyrolysis, chemical conversion, chemical vapor deposition, splat quenching and melt spinning techniques under clean room conditions. Vacuum coating units, in the medium and ultra high vacuum range, with accessories for monitoring, controlling and in-situ measurements have been developed indigenously. The facilities allow the preparation of films under controlled conditions and the study of structural, thermal, electrical, magnetic and optical properties thereof.
