About AIF

Instrumental methods of analyses form an indispensable aspect of any R & D program. Keeping in view the inability of small educational institution and industries to procure and maintain sophisticated analytical instruments,Analytical Instruments Facilities (AIF) has been set up.

AIF at CSIR-CSIO,Chandigarh houses a variety of sophisticated analytical instruments which are operated and maintained by a dedicated and qualified group of Scientists and Engineers. It is an integral part of CSIR-CSIO,and operates with an "open access policy". The result of this policy is that all can benefit from the services of  AIF.

The main objectives of  AIF facilities are :
To provide open access to instrumentation facilities to scientists and other users from academic institutes, R&D laboratories and industries to enable them to carry out new break through research of tomorrow.
To organize innovative training programs, outreach, and meetings/workshops on the use and application of various analytical techniques for new user populations .
To provide facilities of sophisticated analytical instruments to scientists and other users from academic institutes, R&D laboratories and industries to enable them to carry out measurements for R&D work.
To support the researchers for the development of new measurement/analytical techniques/processess/instruementation in diverse areas of science and technology.
