We develop and exploit new and established analytical techniques in order to create new materials and improve existing materials. Our research makes use of an understanding of morphology, structure and chemistry at the atomic scale.

We have an expertise in:

  • nanomaterials
  • metals
  • ceramics
  • minerals
  • cementitious materials

We have also developed capability in:

  • poorly crystalline materials
  • mixed inorganic and organic systems
  • pure organic systems

These materials have increasing application in the fine chemical, energy, biomedical, pharmaceutical and food engineering sectors.
