Mumbai Centre

Mumbai Centre (MC) supports neutron diffraction studies using the Dhruva Reactor at BARC which is a unique facility in the country set up by the Mumbai Centre of Consortium. This facility has attracted several user groups including those from the top most institutions of the country. The small angle neutron scattering (SANS) of BARC has been prolifically accessed under the CRS for soft matter studies. In addition several complementary facilities required in support of neutron scattering work have been established at the MC of Consortium.

Research topics of interests at Mumbai Centre of UGC-DAE CSR are:

Utilization of neutron and other large scale facilities of BARC
Soft matter
Magnetism and magnetic materials
Strongly correlated electron systems
High pressure physics
Dielectrics and multiferroics
Quantum Magnetism and Novel Superconductors
