Welcome to the webpage of the NMR Research Facility at IISER Mohali. We are situated in the Central Analytical Facility (CAF) building in the institute's new campus at Sector 81, Mohali. The facility currently houses two high-field FTNMR spectrometers: 400MHz & 600MHz, in a specially designed magnet hall. The facility caters to the research needs of IISER Mohali's faculty across the disciplines of physics, chemistry and biology. The mandate of the facility is to foster inter-disciplinary research using sophisticated multi-dimensional NMR experiments and to provide state-of-the-art experimental facilities in the region. The facility was inaugurated on March 03, 2010.
