The physics of materials, with an emphasis on the nanoscale

We study fundamental phenomena and find solutions for critical issues such as energy, healthcare and information technology.

Our research is underpinned by advanced characterisation and a long-standing reputation for the development of transmission electron microscopy techniques.
