Royce Technology Platforms, which sit within our Research Framework, are groupings of cutting-edge facilities and expertise.
Each Platform has a Technology Platform Lead responsible for developing and enhancing the facilities and supporting related research activities which utilise Royce equipment.
These core capabilities have been established through significant EPSRC investment to enable innovative advanced materials research. They represent an integrated ecosystem for making, testing and characterising advanced materials and accelerating their transition through the early stages of discovery.
Imaging and Characterisation is a cross-cutting platform which supports work across all the Royce Research Areas. This platform incorporates capabilities from high resolution imaging and chemical characterisation to nanoscale engineering of materials to help optimise their properties for use in next generation electronic devices.
Importantly, Royce Technology Platforms see us combining capabilities across Partners, ensuring UK-wide materials science expertise and capability is visible and accessible to the materials community.
