Multiscale characterization of complex materials

Multiscale characterization of complex materials

Cutting-edge equipment for world-class research in a wide range of areas.

Title: Multiscale characterization of complex materials using a combination of atomic force microscopy and optical coherence tomography

Project leaders: Dr. Jinju Chen,  Prof. Peter Cumpson, Prof. Tom Curtis, Professor Nick Wright, and other colleagues from Computing, Medical School, Dental School and Marine.

Project dates: 22 April 2018-21 April 2020.

Description: This project aims to develop multiscale techniques to characterise soft matter. It will underpin a range of academic and industry-focussed projects in marine biofilms, biological wastewater treatment, biofilm infections, tissue engineering, cancer research and many other healthcare related applications.

Staff: Dr. Jinju Chen,  Prof. Peter Cumpson, Prof. Tom Curtis, Professor Nick Wright, and colleagues from Computing, Medical School, Dental School and Marine .
