Introduction

This group is mainly responsible to facilitate and support all the necessary requirements to run all furnaces, measurement, characterization and other facilities. The group is also responsible to maintain all the equipment in order to smooth operation of the facilities. The facilities are being used for various R&D activities in the institute under different sponsored, collaborative and in-house projects. The fabrication facility is more than 25-Year-old. The group have assisted in successfully fabrication of vacuum electron devices such as space helix TWTs, Magnetron, high power Gyrotrons and Klystrons etc.

Vision

To provide self-reliance to the institute in the fabrication of all low power, high-power microwave devices and plasma devices.

Aim

Aim of the group is to be established a reasonably and world-class fabrication facility of vacuum electron devices area.
