Centre for Crystal Growth (CCG)

Centre for Crystal Growth (CCG) was established in VIT with financial support from various national funding agencies like DST, DRDO, NRB, CSIR, UGC-DAE, BRNS and IGCAR to grow high-quality single crystals using various techniques like slow evaporation, Bridgman, SR and flux technique. The major research areas in the research centre are crystal growth, thin film fabrications, nanomaterials, ceramics, biomaterials, polymers and laser...
