Workshop on Materials Preparation and Characterization Techniques 2019


Methods of preparing bulk, nano and thin films play a crucial role in designing and discovering newer materials. The most crucial aspect in case of organic and inorganic compounds and thin films is the synthesis of high purity and well crystalline compounds. Various preparation techniques are being utilized to synthesize compounds with peculiar properties. Focusing the perspective of preparation techniques is found importance in the current scientific scenario.

Materials characterisation is an integral part for understanding the structure- property relationships and suitable material applications. With development in science and technology, characterisation techniques have evolved and facilitated understanding of matter and advanced applications. While the characterisation is a major field for materials scientists, it remains an important aspect for all engineering areas and sciences. In-spite of being a multidisciplinary pursuit, understanding and interpreting data from characterisation techniques can be difficult and misleading. Given this, it is important to know about the characterisation techniques and their developments and at the same time use the obtained results carefully for right conclusions.


It is proposed to organize workshop on materials preparation and characterization techniques to enhance the knowledge of fellow researchers from the field of materials science. Further, the workshop provides an apt opportunity for the participants to analyze their own research data and get their doubts clarified personally for better understanding.

Participants are requested to bring their own laptops to have a detailed experience with each software and analysis sessions. Necessary measures have been taken to provide required software and sample data for analysis during training sessions.
