We are a Materials Physics based group researching the production, functional properties and applications of Nanomaterials. We have particular strengths in Nanomaterials produced by electrodeposition into nanotemplates and carbon nanotubes, filled and unfilled, but expertise across a much wider range of materials. We have all the necessary experience and facilities to investigate and explain the optical and charge transport properties of nanomaterials. Key areas of application include plasmonics, optoelectronics and nanoelectronics. We are well funded including an EPSRC Programme Grant We are a very collaborative group and welcome further collaborations from UK and International Researchers and in particular prospective PhD students.
