The Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) at
the Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute (CMERI)
was created in 2005 to address the challenges in the area of
advanced materials. The thrust area of work focuses on
experimental research and development in nanomaterials processing for different applications. It comprises facilities to synthesize and
characterize various functional nanomaterials. Recently, the centre is focused on the development of Dye Sensitized Solar Cell (DSSC),nano hybrid materials for tissue engineering, structural nanocomposite materials for cutting tools and strategic application, opto-electronic materials for sensor and novel ceramic shelling for investment casting of Advanced Materials including composites.
As part of its mission, CAMP
engages in the state-of-the-art multidisciplinary research at
the intersections of the fields of materials, electronics,bio-technology and
engineering. CAMP are constanly pursuing to up-dating the knowldege advancement, facilities for characterization and advanced processing capabilities for commercialization.
The characterzation facilities are also extended
to users from
both academia and industry.
CAMP's vision is to solve complex
scientific and engineering challenges in the area of advanced
materials including nanomaterials. This division also serves
the industrial interests by forming industrial partner groups
and seeking opportunities for sharing innovation with the
