Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group

The group has a wide range of experimental facilities at its disposal. These range from simple sample preparation equipment such as soldering irons, to custom built facilities that occupy whole rooms. Many of the facilities have been designed and constructed in house and therefore it is possible for them to be adapted to suit current experimental needs.

In addition to working in the laboratory, a number of the pieces of equipment can be taken off site for use either in demonstrations or to instrument large scale experiments.

While the equipment detailed in this section represent our current and available capabilities the group continually looks to expand and improve our experimental facilities, and are always happy to discuss this with interested parties.
