Introduction

Atoms to Devices is concerned primarily with the deposition of functional films either by vacuum (top down) or solution processes (bottom up) through patterning in all three dimensions. It also includes the manufacture of powders for thick film deposition. Potential application areas cover almost all industrial sectors and particularly ICT, Healthcare and Energy. These applications could transform the following markets: £360bn photonics/imaging/communication; £270Bn semiconductor; £164Bn Cybersecurity; £50Bn energy storage. Royce academic partners, and the wider UK academic and industry community, has a vibrant, world-leading network in materials science and engineering, with excellence across the disciplinary areas required to create a vertically integrated Atoms to Devices programme. This interconnectivity is rarely seen in a single institution, and the Royce collaboration provides a unique and timely means of achieving this.

£164 BILLION

£164 BILLION Cyber security consists of technologies, processes and measures that are designed to protect systems, networks and data from cyber crimes as is with £163 billion

Royce academic partners, and the wider UK academic and industry community, has a vibrant, world-leading network in materials science and engineering, with excellence across the disciplinary areas required to create a vertically integrated Atoms to Devices programme.

This interconnectivity is rarely seen in a single institution, and the Royce collaboration provides a unique and timely means of achieving this.

Partner

This research theme is led by the University of Leeds and Imperial College London, and brings together researchers from a number of Royce and other UK institutions. These include Sheffield, Liverpool, Manchester, Cambridge, Queen’s, University Belfast, Glasgow, York, Warwick and Edinburgh; along with central facilities (Diamond, ISIS, SuperSTEM).

Equipment & Facilities

The new Bragg Centre, a £96m development to create an integrated campus for Engineering and Physical Sciences. Located on the north east quarter of the University campus, the 15,700m2 building will foster a culture of inter-disciplinary working in the development of novel materials to address 21st Century challenges in many areas, including energy efficient computing, telecommunications, sustainable magnetic materials, sensors for use in biological systems and extreme or remote environments, pharmaceutical formulations, ‘smart foods’ and medical technologies. The facility will include first-class laboratory and specialised teaching spaces, enabling cutting-edge research, and outstanding student experience, whilst enhancing the University’s research power and strengthening collaboration with industry.
