Research

A landmark new £4m technology hub, we are leading the way in harnessing renewable energy.

Bringing together world-leading academics from the disciplines of material research and engineering, our focus is on developing next-generation energy. As well as creating new, clean electrolysers and fuel cells, our team are also exploring their uses.

Current Research

Our team's current research specialisms include:

  • 2D materials, such as graphene
  • The use of electrochemistry to produce energy storage
  • Combining electrolysis and fuel cell technology with 3D printing
  • Designing and producing functional coatings via a magnetron sputtering process
  • The fabrication of anodes and membrane fuel cells
  • Deposition and characterisation of thin films
