Part of a new £20 million investment by EPSRC in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) equipment across UK institutions, the £8M, 1GHz NMR instrument at Warwick will provide new structural and dynamic information in chemistry, materials science and biology. It will add to our already significant NMR capabilities that include the 850MHz high-field solid-state NMR National Research Facility, which has been serving a broad academic and industrial user-base since 2010.
Professor Marin Alexe has been awarded grants for two research projects in the field of ferroelectricity – which may lead to breakthroughs in nanotechnology, and memory storage in everyday devices.
