Materials & Devices
The Materials and Devices Theme brings together academics from across the School of Physics with expertise in materials physics and its translation into real-world applications. Our academics work to understand and control structures on a length scale from the Angstrom to the micron to affects the physical behaviour of materials and create new materials with applications in energy, healthcare and communications, as well as developing new techniques to probe the structure of materials.
