Summary (250 words max; this will be used in recruitment publicity). Hard facing materials based on Co-alloys have long been utilised in nuclear power plants for their exceptional galling and wear resistance. Read more

Defining the state-of-the-art in X-ray and electron spectroscopies for discerning the characteristic electronic structure of actinide materials

An EPSRC centre for doctorial training sponsored PhD studentship is available to undertake research in the field of actinide X-ray and electron spectroscopy in a collaborative project between AWE and two research groups at the University of Manchester. Read more

Alternative Materials and Processes for the Textile and Fashion Industry

The fashion and textile industries conduct some of the most polluting practices on the planet. Many initiatives are striving to positively impact the issues the industry faces, in line with climate targets and UN sustainable development goals. Read more

New optical techniques for non-destructive sensing and monitoring

Technical paints provide essential corrosion protection to our infrastructure, which is vital to ensure public safety and drive down the unacceptable economic and carbon cost associated with the replacement of metals. Read more

Investigating Nanoscale Network Polymer Degradation

  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
Network polymers are widely deployed as the matrix in structural composites and high-performance pigmented protective coatings. Surprisingly however, many fundamental aspects of how the properties and structure of these materials degrade upon exposure to the environment remains unknown. Read more

Hydrogen trapping and permeation in metallic and ceramic coatings for fusion powerplant applications

  Research Group: Coatings and Ceramics
Future fusion powerplants must maintain tritium inventory to ensure safe and sustainable plant operations. Structural materials in the breeder blanket and tritium extraction systems will be exposed to tritium and lithium. Read more
