Micro Nano Characterization Facility
Your One Source for Materials, Device Characterization and Analysis
The Micro and Nano Characterization Facility (MNCF) located in Centre for Nano Science and Engineering (CeNSE) building on the Indian Institute of Science (IISc, Bangalore, INDIA) campus is a centralized facility for characterization of Micro and Nano Devices. The National Nanofabrication Centre (NNC) which is 10,000 sq. ft. of clean room housing state of the art equipment for Nanofabrication is located in the same building. The MNCF is 5000 sq. ft precision controlled environment facility housing 4 distinct laboratories for Electrical, Mechanical, Optical and Material Characterization. The MNCF is a national facility with plethora of high end equipment spanning over multiple disciplines of Nano science and engineering rarely found under a single roof. The prime funding agencies to establish this facility are NPMAS-DRDO and MCIT.
The Mission of this facility is to support research and educational objectives of CeNSE, IISc and offer state of the art characterization facilities and services to Nano science academia (through INUP), related industries and National Laboratories. The CeNSE witnesses multidisciplinary research activities in Nano-scale electronics, Nano technologies, smart materials, Micro and Nano electromechanical systems (NEMS, MEMS), bio-electronic interfaces and integrated small-scale systems.
