The group is involved with many collaborators, both from universities and industry. As such, our work covers a broad spectrum of research projects, including:

  • materials for nuclear fusion - such as ODS steels and tungsten alloys
  • materials for nuclear fission - such as Zr alloys, Fe-Cr alloys and precipitation in RPV steels
  • semiconducting materials - with application to photovoltaics and quantum computing
  • advanced engineering materials - Ni/Co-based superalloys, Ti alloys and steels for aerospace applications
  • high-efficiency catalysts - including characterisation of catalyst nanoparticles
  • materials subject to corrosive and environmental degradation - such as stress corrosion cracking, high temperature oxidation and hydrogen embrittlement
  • advanced APT and FIM techniques - including 3D FIM and development of an in-situ environmental cell for the LEAP
  • computational methods for APT and reconstruction
