सीएसआईआर- केंद्रीय विद्युतरसायन अनुसंधान संस्थान
(विद्युतरसायन के क्षेत्र में एक प्रमुख अनुसंधान एवं विकास संस्थान)

Materials characterization and instrumental methods of Analysis form an indispensable tool for any R & D program. The Central Instrumentation Facility (CIF) has been established at the Central Electrochemical Research Institute that acquires, maintains sophisticated analytical equipments all under one roof and provides service to the R & D projects of CECRI, Research scholars, academic institutions and industries.  The facility has grown into an important R & D support group for spectral measurements, structure determination and materials characterization. Apart from the analytical facilities, this centre undertakes the development of custom built electronic instruments for our in-house R & D projects and specific request from academic institutions and industries.  Also, on specific request, CIF can provide training for operation and maintenance of sophisticated instruments at other institutions also. Project guidance is offered for M.Sc. (ECE and Instrumentation) and M.E / M.Tech students in their final year projects.

CIF has the following sophisticated analytical instrumentation facilities to characterize bulk materials and surfaces using Spectroscopy, Resonance, Surface analytical, X-ray and Chromatographic techniques.
