Investigating the thermal, mechanical, and dielectric properties of various insulation systems used in aerospace and automotive applications to locate and image failure locations.
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.
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.
TThe 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.
