Centre for Materials for Electronics Technology
Centre for Materials for Electronics Technology is a Scientific Society Registered under Ministry of Information Technology, with the main objective to establish technology strength in electronics materials for the present and future industrial requirement. Presently C-MET has three laboratories at Hyderabad, Pune and Thrissur. The high purity materials are the basic building blocks of electronics technology and therefore C-MET, Hyderabad is involved in development as well as scaling up of operations for production of high purity metals, alloys, special dopants and semiconductor materials.
The gamut of operations required in purification process includes hydrometallurgy, pyrometallurgy, vacuum metallurgy,
Electro-metallurgy, zone refining, electron beam melting etc.
It also requires very advanced methods of analysing the impurities in ppm/ppb level employing emission spectrography,
atomic absorption spectrometry, mass spectro-metry etc.
With its administrative headquarters at Pune, C-MET distributes its research activities between its three
laboratories at Pune, Hyderabad and Thrissur with the above-mentioned specific research areas earmarked for
each of these three laboratories. The administration and management of the Society are vested with a Governing
Council, a Steering Committee and an Executive Committee.
C-MET, Pune is engaged in development of Thick Film Materials for hybrids and Surface mounted devices,
speciality polymers likephotoresists, polymides and conducting polymers, nano optical glass ceramics and
Dedicated to the furtherance of competent research and development in the firmament
of Electronic Materials, the Centre for Materials for Electronics Technology (C-MET) functions as an autonomous
scientific society under the Ministry of Information Technology (MIT), Govt. of India. Besides augmenting core
competence, C-MET envisions attainment of self-sufficiency in the sphere of Electronic materials, components and
devices to cater to India’s strategic- and industrial- applications, exploiting indigenous
resources of raw materials.
