Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology is a unit of Department of Atomic Energy, Government of India, engaged in R & D in non-nuclear front line research areas of Lasers, Particle Accelerators & related technologies.
On February 19, 1984 the President of India, Gyani Zail Singh, laid the foundation stone of the centre. Construction of laboratories and houses began in May 1984.
In June 1986, the first batch of scientists from BARC, Mumbai, moved to RRCAT and scientific activities were started.
Since then, the centre has rapidly grown into a premier institute for research and development in lasers, accelerators and their applications.
The RRCAT campus is spread over a 760 hectare picturesque site on the outskirts of
