|Surface Physics||Fracture and Shock Physics|
Welcome to the Surface, Microstructure & Fracture group.
Research in the SMF group focuses on both fundamental and applied studies of materials over a wide range of length and time scales: from the nanoscale to the macroscale and from picoseconds fluctuations to quasi-static processes.
Our areas of study are broadly divided into surface phenomena and dynamic material processes. Throughout the group we have a strong emphasis on continuing the Cavendish tradition of developing unique experimental techniques to carry out our research.
