Central Instrumentation Facility

Material characterization and instrumental methods of Analysis form an indispensable tool for any R and D program. The Central Instrumentation Facility (CIF) has been established at the CSIR-Central Electrochemical Research Institute, Karaikudi that acquires, maintains sophisticated analytical equipments all under one roof and provides service to the R & D projects of CSIR-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.

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

 

Note: Analysis of external samples have been temporarily suspended and hence, no jobcard will be entertained until further notification.
