Materials Research

The materials we study range in age and size, from old and massive cast iron Victorian water pipes to new and tiny carbon nanotubes and graphene.

We tackle problems associated with materials for six industrial sectors: Aerospace, Automotive and Marine; Defence and Security; Energy Generation and Management; Healthcare; Infrastructure; and Sensors and Instrumentation.
