Central Research Facility

ABOUT CENTRAL RESEARCH FACILITIES (CRF)
A Central Research Facility at Indian School of Mines (ISM) will be a Centre of national importance at which the high-quality equipment with cutting edge technologies concentrated at a single location which will provide scientific and technical services for researchers. Such a facility is an important tool for strengthening the research-relevant infrastructure of science and, consequently, represents a key prerequisite for preserving and raising the efficiency of research. Sophisticated analytical instruments are vital for pursuing research in all areas of modern science and technology.
OBJECTIVES OF CRF
• To establish state-of- the-art research facilities and instruments to support advanced research under one umbrella;
• To support and promote inter- and multi- disciplinary research in contemporary and frontier areas;
• To enable Faculty members and research scholars of I.S.M to get the facilities of most advanced instruments without the need of going to outside Institutions as is the case at present.
• To establish supporting facilities (e.g. Double Distilled Water Plant, Milli-Pore and Milli-Q water Plant, Liquid Nitrogen Plant etc. ) for smooth running of instruments.
In addition to the main objectives as given above the Centre will also carry out following other activities:
• Organizing short term courses/workshops on the use and application of various instruments and analytical techniques;
• Impart training to technicians for maintenance and operation of sophisticated instruments;
• Acquiring and developing capability for preventive maintenance and repair of sophisticated instruments; and
• Generating institutional fund by providing these facilities to the users.
