Supporting the development of superior quantum optics to improve the efficiency, fidelity & speed of Quantum Computing and Quantum Networks, through access to state-of-the-art facilities.
Supporting the development of the next generation of small, reliable, and energy-efficient devices through the Royce industrial collaboration programme to deliver fully functional samples and reduce C02.
Investigating the thermal, mechanical, and dielectric properties of various insulation systems used in aerospace and automotive applications to locate and image failure locations.
The influence of nanoprecipitation on the mechanical properties of microalloyed steels for the automotive industry
Two alloys were made using Royce expertise and equipment to evaluate the effect of Chromium (Cr) on precipitation, ferrite fraction and morphology. They were also reheated and isothermally transformed, while the reheating temperature was changed to evaluate their effect on the tensile properties.
Access to the Royce High-Voltage Electrical Characterisation Suite enabled Cambridge GaN devices to characterise transistor prototypes to exploit the new emerging material’s semiconductor capabilities.
Researchers at the University of Leeds are benefiting from the Henry Royce Institute’s pioneering deposition equipment to make efficient memory devices using supercomputers.
EC-OG received funding and expertise from the Henry Royce Institute to perform metallographic examinations using Royce facilities at the University of Oxford’s Materials Characterisation Service (OMCS).
QV Bioelectronics Ltd is developing a pioneering electrotherapy implant for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme that aims to transform patient outcomes.
The University of Sheffield’s Arcast 200 Arc Melter has produced tungstentantalum alloys in complete solid solution using a novel processing method. This will be the focal point of research to investigate the effect of a nuclear fusion environment through helium plasma exposure and helium ion irradiation.
The University of Sheffield’s Functional Materials and Devices (FMD) Group has utilised the expertise and equipment of the Henry Royce Institute to develop novel Lead Oxide (PbO)-free high energy density capacitors, which are currently undergoing prototype testing with UK-based multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) manufacturers.
The EPSRC funded Royce Industrial Collaboration Programme (ICP) has successfully matched companies that have research, development, and innovation (RD&I) projects with Royce experts in materials science and cutting-edge facilities in a truly collaborative endeavour. This case study illustrates the outcome of an ICP project between Johnson Matthey and Royce at Imperial College London.
Metalchemy is a high growth, UK-based, clean-tech start-up, focused on developing solutions to reduce food waste, resulting in both economic and environmental savings. Incorporating Metalchemy’s silver technology into food packaging materials delivers superior antimicrobial properties, improved barrier characteristics, and enhanced thermal stability. Through the Royce SME Equipment Access scheme Metalchemy was able to undertake important characterisation to assess the adherence of integration methods in packaging materials.
Building upon a deep established academic-Morgan collaboration, this ICP-Royce funding has allowed us to explore the use of wood tar biopitch (WTB) as a sustainable replacement for coal tar pitch (CTP), which is used throughout the foundation industries as a carbonisable/graphitizable binder.
ReCon² is a University of Manchester spin-out initiative developing a low cost, simple, and quantitative method of verifying recycled content in plastic items through the incorporation of low quantities of fluorescent tracer molecules.
This study evaluated the cutting speed and surface finish of BN, SiC, alumina, and diamond blades and slurries for wire cutting of LaFeSi intermetallic for magnetocaloric cooling.
This project focused on development of novel tungsten-carbide coatings for potential use as alternative electrocatalysts to produce green hydrogen by direct seawater electrolysis.
