Central Research Facility


A Central Research Facility has been established at The NorthCap University in the academic year 2014-15. The facility is mainly developed with an objective of providing a central facility of latest and advanced analytical instruments for research in the areas of Physics, Chemistry, Engineering and interdisciplinary sciences. The establishment of this facility has strengthened the research-relevant infrastructure of basic science and technology. The facility is mainly equipped with state of art equipments like UV-Vis-NIR Spectrophotometer, LCR Meter, I-V Picometer, Vacuum Coating Unit, spin coating, Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Holography set up and solar simulator. Various faculty members and PhD scholars are utilising this facility to pursue their research work.


The main objectives of central research facility are:

  • To provide a central facility of latest and advanced analytical instruments for research in the areas of Engineering and interdisciplinary sciences.
  • To provide services to users from within and outside the University.
  • To guide the research scholars in various area’s using this facility
  • To publish quality research paper by using the facility.
  • Continuously upgrade and maintain state of the art research facility for excellence in research.
