We house facilities for the manufacture and characterisation of material systems across a variety of length scales including quasi-static, dynamic and fatigue mechanical testing, electron microscopy and surface analysis of functional ceramics, composites and functional inks.

Research within our Centre addresses ceramics, polymers and metals, as well as composite materials consisting of two or more of these materials, and explores a range of applications where such materials are being used to bring about improved performance or new products.
