Tools & Facility

Electron Probe Micro Analyzer (EPMA – CAMECA – SX-100) for quantification of element concentrations in minerals, WD spectra of minerals, and image profiling of elements of mineral.
X-ray Diffractometer (PANanlytical, X-Pert PRO) – for identification of different phases of minerals and compounds.
Inductively Coupled Plasma and Atomic Emission Spectrophotometer (ICP-AES-JOBIN YVON JY-70 Plus) – For determination of major, trace and rare earth elements.
Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ELAN – DRC – E) for determination of major, trace and rare earth elements.
Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS- Varian-880) with flame and graphite furnace- for determining of major and trace elements.
X-Ray Fluorescence Sequential Spectrometer (XRF- Siemens SRS – 3000) – for determination of major and trace elements in rocks/materials.
Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM- Zeiss EVO 40 with EDAX attachment) – to study the surface morphology of microfossils, minerals and ore minerals.
Laser Raman Micro Probe – (Horiba Jobin Yvan – High Resolution) for identification polyatomic species in solid, liquid and gas phases, and for mineral and fluid studies.
