Surface analysis at the scale of microns and nanometres involves characterising atoms and molecules at surfaces and interfaces. This is key to understanding and characterising surfaces used in high technology and innovative industries worldwide. Underpinning this is a range of state of the art analytical facilities applied under vacuum, at ambient and liquid environments including, XPS, electron microscopy, SIMS and AFM.
Our hosts are The University of Nottingham. Founded in 1948, they one of the leading UK universities for research and have established campuses in Malaysia and China in 2005 and 2006 respectively. Opened in 2007, the Nottingham Nanotechnology and Nanoscience Centre is a collaboration between the School of Physics and Astronomy, School of Chemistry, School of Pharmacy and the Department of Mechanical, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering which promotes and builds upon the extensive Nanoscience activity of the University. The Centre hosts a number of research facilities, in addition to acting as a hub for nano related research across the University.
