IUC-DAE Consortium for Scientific Research (IUC-DAE)

The University Grants Commission created an Inter-University Consortium, with its headquarters at Indore for the utilization of the facilities established by the Department of Atomic Energy. The UGC, through the Consortium, will continue to make suitable financial provision for the salary of the core scientific, technical and administrative staff, fellowship to research students, the travel and stay of the visiting faculty, and other recurring and non-recurring expenditure on the functioning of the Consortium. It will also provide adequate grant for equipment and consumables.

Objectives of IUC-DAE Consortium for Scientific Research

  • To promote interaction amongst the scientists working in the research centres of the Department of Atomic Energy and the faculty from the universities and other institutions of higher learning.

  • To enable young students to work on programmes of national importance under the joint guidance of the faculty from universities and the scientists of DAE so as to nurture an organic linkage between the university system and research centres of DAE.

The Inter- University consortium has over the years taken several initiatives to foster the interaction between the University system and the DAE institutions. DAE will continue to make the major research facilities accessible to the researchers from the universities and institutions of higher learning through the consortium. It will also make available the infrastructural facilities such as laboratories, library, workshop etc. necessary to carry on the research work. 

IUC-DAE Centres

CSR Indore Centre
The Indore Centre is developed towards utilisation of the synchrotron radiation sources INDUS-1 and -2. INDUS-1 is a 450 MeV electron storage ring giving useful light in the energy range 10 to 800 eV - vacuum ultra violet to soft X-rays. INDUS-2 (under development) is a storage ring with electron energy continuously varying from 750 MeV to 2.5 GeV giving harder X-radiation. 

CSR Mumbai Centre
The Mumbai Centre of the Consortium for Scientific Research (CSR) is located inside the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) at Trombay. The Mumbai Centre facilitates the utilization of large scale research facilities available at BARC by scientists and students from universities and various academic institutions across the country. In particular, university scientists and students are provided access to the National Facility for Neutron Beam Research (NFNBR) at Dhruva reactor. 

CSR Kolkata Centre
The Kolkata Center is primarily devoted to research in different aspects of experimental and theoretical nuclear physics and applications of nuclear techniques in condensed matter physics, chemistry and biosciences. It coordinates and helps to run projects of University scientists, on accelerator based experimental work, both in beam and offline at the Variable Energy Cyclotron Center, Kolkata, the 3 MV Pelletron at Institute of Physics, Bhubaneswar and to limited extent at BARC and the 14UD Pelletron at the TIFR, in addition to the centers in house research facilities.

CSR Kalpakkam Node
A Memorandum of Understanding between IGCAR and UGC-DAE CSR was signed on January 16, 2007 at Kalpakkam. This MoU envisages the creation of a UGC-DAE CSR Node at Kalpakkam, that will house high-end research facilities that would be open to University researchers. The node would help to foster and active collaboration between DAE and the academic institutions through the involvement of young research scholars.
