A ‘Differential Thermal Analyser (DTA)’ has been developed as an import substitution step, with funding from DST. This venture makes it affordable to institutions of higher education, to provide ‘hands-on’ experience with higher realms of laboratory instruments, to PG students.

Taking the Differential Thermal Amalyser (DTA) further, a ‘Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC)’ is being developed, to quantify the energies associated with the transition events detected by the DTA.

The electronics for the operation of a customized oxygen gas sensor is being developed, with funding from DRDO. The electronics module would be a compact stand-alone unit complete with the sensor biasing temperature control and amperometric signal conditioning and measurement circuitry.
