The Department houses a wide range of specialist research equipment housed in a number of processing and measurement facilities. Many of the facilities are managed by one or more of the research groups in the Department and most are available to all University staff and students. The list below is far from complete, but gives an indication of the scope of the facilities available to researchers.  Internal users can also find further information on these facilities on the Intranet.

  • Materials for Energy Efficient Energy Generation
  • Materials for Energy Efficient Energy Storage
  • Materials for Energy Efficient Use
