Indore Centre (IC) of the Consortium is supporting university users for extensive research program based on beamlines at RRCAT Indus synchrotrons and in-house-facilities at the centre. Photo electron spectroscopy (PES) and 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. Researchers are supported through large number of CRS projects that are ongoing at various beamlines of Indus 1 & 2 covering experiments in condensed matter, imaging, protein crystallography, materials chemistry etc. The IC has a very wide range of advanced material science facilities for synthesis, characterization & front-line research. It has set up advanced cryogenics facilities for liquid nitrogen and helium. A strong user program is supported for the study of materials behaviour under low temperatures and high magnetic (LTHM) fields. The facilities are open to all the researchers through user portal.
