The central R&D facilities of CeNS are housed at Characterization Lab (C-Lab) and Device & Interface Lab (Di-Lab). C-Lab provides routine characterization equipment such as spectrometers, diffractometer, thermal analyzer, optical microscopes and other advanced microscopes. At Di-Lab, metal deposition units and lithography set up for laboratory level device fabrication and advanced measurement units for device characterization are available. These facilities are mainly used to guide and train the Ph.D students and other visiting project students of the Centre towards producing scientific data.

The above facilities are open to external researchers and industry on a chargeable basis. The objective of this venture is to provide accessible measurement facility to the research fraternity across India at a  nominal charge.
