TIFRH houses state-of-the-art infrastructure needed for the research efforts and this infrastructure is constantly upgraded. Our state-of-the-art facilities foster an environment which is conducive to intensive research, in-depth learning, and smooth collaboration. First-time users of the facilities are provided ample training and instructions, with well-informed personnel always available to guide them if required.

National Facility for High-Field NMR

Our National Facility for High-Field NMR houses six spectrometers, which serve the needs of the scientific community at the institute and across the country. The facility was originally established in 1983, with support from the Department of Science and Technology, Department of Biotechnology, and the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, Government of India. It was moved to TIFR Hyderabad in 2018.

Extreme Photonics Innovation Centre

Funded by a £4 million grant from the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), the Extreme Photonics Innovation Centre (EPIC) is a joint UK-India innovation initiative aimed at developing laser-driven accelerator applications with economic and societal impact.

High performance computing

The HPC facility at TIFRH caters to the diverse technology needs of TIFR-H students, faculty, employees, and visitors. In collaboration with professionals across the institution, Information Technology Services (ITS) provides comprehensive technical support, resources, and services to help everyone at the TIFRH work smarter, faster, and safer.

Fluorescence-activated Cell Sorting

Our FACS facility provides technologies and equipment for cell sorting (sterile, at speeds up to 30,000 cells/sec), and can sort homogeneous or mixed cell populations based on up to 18 fluorochromes, into 4 separate populations simultaneously, via single cell 96 well plate sorting. Facility personnel are present to aid investigators create efficient and cost-effective experimental designs, by optimizing cytometry-specific fluorochrome selection and assist with the operation of analysis instruments.

Confocal Microscopy

This facility houses an array of confocal microscopes catering to various experimental designs. The microscopes are listed here: (1) Olympus FV3000 Confocal point scanning microscope: 7 laser 4 detectors; FRAP, FLIM and FRET with Pico Quant laser, (2) Leica Stellaris 5 Confocal Upright microscope, (3) Nikon Spinning disk with 355 nm pulsed laser So-Ra system

Thin film Deposition and Cleanroom Facility

The thin film facility houses a couple of molecular beam epitaxy & RF/DC sputtering systems for thin film growth of metals, inter-metallic alloys, superconductors and chalcogenides. Cleanroom facility gives access to laser lithography, SEM and E-beam lithography.

Dynamic Mechanical Analyser

We have a TA Q800 DMA dynamic mechanical analyser which can analyse thin films, polymer and ceramic composite pellets, fibres, and more. The instrument can also measure the static and dynamic moduli of samples. The temperature range of the instrument lies between room temperature to high temperatures.


The facility maintains Agilent 6545 Q tof LC MS for the intact mass analysis of peptides and proteins. It also maintains a Postnova PN3621 MALS detector which can be connected to a suitable SEC column to determine the molar mass and Rg of macromolecules.

Single Crystal X-Ray Diffractometer (SCXRD)

This instrument examines the solid state molecular structure to address the bonding situation of a new class of molecules.
