Centre of Excellence for Microstructurally Designed Advanced Materials Development
The Centre of Excellence on Microstructurally Designed Advanced Materials was established in 2013 with the financial assistance received under the TEQIP II scheme. Multipurpose Tribometer, 3D Optical Surface Profilers, Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), Hall Effect Measurement Set-Up, Ultrasonic Vibrator, Melting Furnace & Thermal Evaporation System laboratories were developed and main operational from February 2015.
The centre primarily focuses on multi disciplinary research, training and development of concepts in computation, design, characterization and application of materials in the areas of advanced sensor materials, affordable bio-implants, crash worthy structural steel, alternative permanent magnet materials and materials refurbishment. Apart from carrying out research in the areas mentioned above, the centre also aims at creating technologies that can be commercially exploited by industries.
