Central Instrumentation Facility

Division of Research & Innovation has advanced central instrumentation facilities with sophisticated instruments.


Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) & Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) (EVO 18)

A scanning electron microscope (SEM) is a type of electron microscope that uses a concentrated stream of electrons to scan the surface of a sample and produce images. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) has a resolution of more than 1 nm. EDS (Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy) is a method for determining a material’s chemical characterization or elemental makeup. EDS can be used to figure out what chemical elements exist in a material.

X-Ray Diffractometer (XRD):

XRD is a technique for determining a material’s underlying crystal structure; it can be used to verify the crystallinity and structure of a sample but does not offer chemical information. XRD patterns can be used to calculate material lattice parameters, crystal (or grain) orientation, stress in crystalline areas, and secondary phases in the sample. It’s a method of bulk characterization that produces an average diffraction pattern for the measured region.

XRD is a non-destructive method that can be performed at room temperature and pressure.

Fourier-Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) Spectrometer (Thermoscientific Nicolet Summit LITE iD1)

FTIR is a very versatile method for surface characterisation of nanoparticles. Under certain conditions, the surface chemical composition of NPs, as well as the reactive surface sites responsible for surface reactivity, may be determined. By detecting various functional groups from spectral bands, FTIR spectroscopy may be used to determine the conjugation between the nanomaterial and the adsorbed biomolecules. The frequency of vibration between atom bonds in the nanoparticle corresponds to the absorption peaks in the FTIR spectrum. The peak intensity of FTIR gives a clear indication of the components present, making it a useful tool for qualitative research.

UV-Vis Spectro Photo Meter (LABMAN LMSP-UV 1900):

UV-vis spectroscopy compares the amount of discrete wavelengths of UV or visible light absorbed by or transmitted through a sample to a reference or blank sample in comparison to the amount of discrete wavelengths of UV or visible light absorbed by or transmitted through a reference or blank sample. The sample makeup has an impact on this attribute, which might indicate what’s in the sample and at what concentration. Bacterial culture, drug identification, nucleic acid purity checks and quantification, beverage quality control, and chemical research are just a few of the fields where UV-vis spectroscopy is applied.

Biologic VSP-3e Potentiostat

The Potentiostat is used to examine the electrochemical behaviour of energy storage devices (supercapacitors, batteries, fuels cells, solar cells, and so on), corrosion research, biosensors, and so on. Before going on to device a construction, the nanomaterial must undergo electrochemical experiments such as current-voltage, charge-discharge, impedance spectroscopy, corrosion, retention, and fatigue utilising this equipment.

Glovebox

A glovebox is a sealed container used to manipulate things in situations where a different atmosphere is required. Gloves are incorporated into the glovebox’s sidewalls so that the user can lay their hands inside and carry out duties without breaching containment. A section or all of the box is usually translucent to allow the user to see what is being changed. The glovebox enables a person to work with potentially dangerous substances such as radioactive materials or infectious disease agents, as well as substances that demand a very high purity inert atmosphere, such as argon or nitrogen. In a vacuum environment, a glovebox can also be used to manipulate goods.


Guidelines for using Central Instrumentation Facility:

  • Central instrumentation facility services can be availed by external faculty/students on charge basis.
  • Prior registration is to be made by confirming the slot available and then payment against the availing facility.
  • Payment made against the facility availed is non-refundable.
