About Central Instrumentation Facility

Central Instrumentation Facility of LPU houses a wide range of high-end instruments for pushing the boundaries of research in science and technology to higher level. These instruments and facilities help the faculties, research scholars and students to carry out globally competitive research in basic, applied and medical sciences.

The Center also hopes for expansion of the facilities each year making it a core facility in the country. By realizing CIF we expect a prominent hub for pioneering and collaborative analytical research in our country. CIF runs under the purview of Division of Research and Development of the university and is expected to self-sustain by revenue generation for the upkeep and maintenance of the instruments.

Centers of Excellence


CIF of Lovely Professional University is equipped with sophisticated instruments to carry out spectral measurements, structure determination and chemical analysis. Click on the instrument name in the following table to view their description.

Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope
The Jeol field emission scanning electron microscope is a versatile high-resolution scanning electron microscope.
X-ray Diffractometer
The D8 ADVANCE is the benchmark when it comes to extracting structural information from X-Ray Powder Diffraction including Rietveld (TOPAS) analysis.
Perkin Elmer
Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer
In Infrared spectroscopy or vibrational spectroscopy is used to study the chemical composition of a sample. IR-radiations interact with the sample to produce infrared spectrum.
Perkin Elmer
Fluorescence Spectrophotometer
Fluorescence spectrophotometry is a technique that analyze the state of sample (normally a biological system) by studying its interactions with fluorescent probe molecules.
