Shell-doped quantum dots as smart “on-off” catalysts for thermally sensitive organic transformations

Quantum dots (QDs) are photoluminescent nanoparticles which reside at the cutting edge of opto-electronic device development, with the 2023 Nobel prize in chemistry awarded to 3 of the most prominent scientists in the field. Read more

Core and core-shell nanomaterials synthesis for Optoelectronics

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Nanoscience and technology, which involves the manipulation of materials using the property of size to bring about specific desired changes in the electronic structure of materials, has proven to be a powerful additional tool permitting the materials scientist to effect greater control over the charge transport properties in materials. Read more

Advanced Computational Methodologies for Smart Multifunctional Composites

Smart multifunctional composites (MFCs) such as electroactive polymers, magnetoactive polymers, hydrogels, photosensitive polymers, liquid-crystal elastomers etc., are increasingly being used for various applications in soft robotics, precision drug delivery, tactile sensors and shape morphing. Read more

Design magnetoelectric nanoparticles with outstanding physical property for biomedical applications

Magnetoelectric nanoparticles (MENP) are multiferroic materials with magnetic and electric properties coupled together. The coupling allows direct control of ferroelectricity using an external magnetic field or vice-versa. Read more

Unravelling the role of corrosion products in the localised corrosion of large scale energy system infrastructure

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
Carbon dioxide (CO2) corrosion of carbon steel is a degradation mechanism observed across mature and new energy systems, as well as carbon abatement technologies such as Carbon Capture and Storage. Read more

How do foraminifera grow? Determining the role of cellular ion transport processes in biogenic marine calcite formation

Project rationale. The shells of calcifying planktonic marine organisms such as the foraminifera represent one of the largest long-term carbon sinks on Earth’s surface and are an important archive of geochemical systems that record past climate change. Read more

Understanding how formulation parameters influence the performance of novel capsule formulations

Two-piece capsules are used in dry powder inhalers (DPIs) as a single-dose container for powdered pharmaceutical formulations. These formulations contain active pharmaceutical ingredients to treat pulmonary conditions, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Read more

Nuclear structure for the astrophysical r-process

The rapid neutron-capture (r) process produces about half of the nuclei heavier than iron. How this happens in exploding stars is one of the great open questions in physics. Read more
