Indore Centre

Indore Centre (IC) of the Consortium is instrumental in supporting extensive research under collaborative research schemes (CRS) utilizing RRCAT Indus synchrotrons. Photo electron spectroscopy (PES) and recently, soft x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) beamlines set up at the Indus 1 & 2, respectively, by the Consortium have been very effectively used leading to many remarkable experiments. A large number of CRS projects are ongoing at various beamlines of Indus 1 & 2 covering experiments in condensed matter, protein crystallography etc. The IC has a very wide range of advanced material science facilities for characterization & synthesis. It has set up advanced cryogenics facilities for liquid nitrogen and helium. A strong user program is supported for the study of materials behavior under low temperatures and high magnetic (LTHM) fields.
