Condensed Matter Physics Research Center (CMPRC), is a research center established to work for the development and promotion of science and technology (S&T) in Western Nepal with special focus on materials science and engineering. This center was formed in Butwal in 2010 which was successfully registered in 2011.
Condensed Matter Physics Research Center (CMPRC), act as multidisciplinary scientific researches which will combine material science with technology and other inter-disciplinary areas including Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Engineering.
Condensed Matter explores the macroscopic (extending to universe) as well as microscopic (extending to fermions) property of matters encompassing almost all fields of science.. At present, this center is proposed to work on condensed material research linked to eight thematic areas:
Condensed Matter Physics Research Center (CMPRC), Butwal has started functioning from November, 2010. Its vision is to develop and apply cutting-edge theoretical and computational methods and the best available computing resources in solving the problems related to the selection of suitable materials and devices for various technological applications. The center’s focus at present is in condensed-matter, materials physics/chemistry and specifically on nano materials and nano devices. This includes modeling and simulation of wide variety of materials, and their properties, ranging from novel half-metals, topological insulators, semiconductors desirable for spintronic applications. CMPRC-Butwal has build national as well as international collaborations for joint research activities on materials modeling and characterization with the kind support from various scientist in Nepal, and abroad. Recently, new materials are synthesized in collaboration with the international group in Japan and India. .
NCCR, an independent think-tank institution, fulfils its vision by working in partnership with a broad range of actors (research institutions, universities and likeminded organizations & individuals) to provide independent, evidence-based analysis and research findings to contemporary issues affecting lives and livelihoods of people of Nepal and beyond.
CMPRC Objectives are
Enriched by its vision, the institution aims to:
