About the Project
This project will help resolve these issues using the world-class facilities in the York Surface Science Laboratory, in particular, electron spectroscopy and scanning probe microscopy. Building on earlier studies of 2D material membrane properties [1,2], the PhD student will help provide key insight into fundamental nanofiltration processes that will accelerate the development of smart membrane technologies for artificial biological systems, tissue engineering, energy harvesting, and filtration. Novel instrumentation will be developed to allow in situ studies of membrane behaviour whilst additional avenues for investigation such as nanoparticle interaction with 2D membranes will also be pursued .
