Major facilities in fabrication and characterisation of electronic devices, previously dispersed around the University, were co-located, substantially enhanced, and complemented by new capabilities notably in nanoscale fabrication, plastic electronics, nanobiology and biomedical sensors, and modelling.
Our strategy is based on having selective and focussed programmes of research, each of critical mass, which embrace in their investigations the full spectrum of fundamental science through to applied engineering. We are proud of our record of excellence, and proud of the practical benefits our work has brought to the wider World. We believe our contributions to academia, industry and society as a whole will place us as one of the leading research laboratories in advanced technologies on an international basis.
Since the opening of the ATI in 2002 we have celebrated some notable events and our researchers have generated high profile results across a range of activities:
