Nanostructured Materials MSc by Research
View tabbed content | View all content (for printing)
The Nanostructured Materials research degrees are part of a large and multidisciplinary activity within the School of Materials. We have strong links with industry and leading research councils.
The ability to characterise and manipulate the structure of matter on the nanoscale is fundamental to the development of advanced structural and functional materials. Our research, therefore, is broad-ranging and encompasses composites, fibres, surface-engineering and advanced characterisation techniques.
We have strong links with industry worldwide and our work impacts directly on current practice within the sector. Industrial sponsors of our research include DeBeers, Gatan, British Vita, and research and trade organisations EPSRC, DTI and EC.
Current research interests in this area include:
- Nanoporous substrates for tissue engineering
- Nanostructured surfaces for improved environmental resistance
- Nanoengineering using lasers
- Polymer nanocomposites
