Micro Nano Characterization Facility
Your One Source for Materials, Device Characterization and Analysis
To be a reliable and sought-after global facility for Characterization and Analysis at the Micro/Nano scale
To work closely with academia, industries, and national laboratories to solve challenging scientific and industrial problems, and be home to a team of highly skilled and motivated application technologists/scientists in the domain of Nano Science and Engineering. Be a self sustaining and non-profit facility.
Our values are inculcated from the founding members of CeNSE, who strove hard to
infuse a sense of collaboration and commitment to high standards. First and foremost is
the intention with which the centralized facilities (NNFC, MNCF, Packaging Facility, SysEF, CoNE)
were created at CeNSE and opened to the Indian research community in an almost missionary mode, committed to service.
We also draw inspiration from many faculty members from across the IISc campus, their contemporary research traditions,
and their partnership with the global academia and industry, which strives to tackle both "blue sky" and "down to earth" problems. Our source of inspiration also comes from public funding agencies which have ensured that we have all resources for the establishment and running of this singular facility.
