Temperatures up to 2400 oC, Pressure up to 10 bar, Vacuum down to ~ 10-5 mbar
Crystal growth under Ar, O2 and Ar/O2 mixtures

2) Physical Property Measurement System: For measurement of electrical transport, thermal transport, and magnetisation.

3) Magnetic Properties Measurement System: For sensitive measurements of Ac and Dc magnetization up to 7 Tesla magnetic field.

4) Powder X-ray Diffractometer: For x-ray diffraction up to 1300 degrees

5) Single Crystal Laue Diffractometer

6) State-of-the-art, commercial (Omicron) ultra high vacuum (UHV) scanning tunnelling microscope (STM): Capable of operating at low temperature (LT), (77 K and 4.2 K) and room temperature (300 K). The UHV-LT-STM and can be used for imaging, tunnelling spectroscopy, and single atom and single molecule manipulation on conducting samples

7) Commercial (Nanosurf) STM operating in ambient environment (at room temperature and in air)

8) Commercial (Nanosurf) Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) operating in ambient environment (at room temperature and in air) for imaging of conducting as well as insulating samples.
