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.
The Department of Materials has a wide range of facilities for processing and characterising materials. These facilities are available for use by researchers in both academia and industry. For academic users at Imperial College London most of the major facilities are directly chargeable and can be selected on InfoEd. Please discuss your requirements with the appropriate Research Officer and with Research Services. Users from other academic institutions can also access the facilities and are advised to contact the appropriate Research Officer to discuss their requirements. Estimates for the access charges can be provided for inclusion as directly incurred costs on your research grant application.
Researchers from industry who are interested in accessing any of the facilities are invited to submit an inquiry to Dr David Payne, Director of Research Facilities
