The Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre (KNC)

The Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre (KNC) enables the study of materials and material interfaces through the use of highly advanced electron, ion and atomic force microscopes. Imaging and diffraction analysis can be performed over a wide length scale range from the sub-millimetre right down to the nanometre and atomic scale. The information obtained can provide powerful analysis and insight into structure-property relationships in important technological materials, such as nano magnetic structures, electronic devices, thin film optical coatings, oxide materials, including ferroelectrics, advanced metal alloys, and polymer films and devices.
