Charlie Slade


I graduated from Warwick University in 2016 with a BSc MPhys in Physics. I chose to stay on to do a PhD in Material Sciences and Microscopy, under the supervision of Dr Jeremy Sloan and Dr Ana Sanchez.

Research Interests

The encapsulation of Phase Change Materials (PCMs) inside Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNTs). I grow and analyse the nanocomposite PCM@SWCNTs, in order to identify and model the structures that have formed, how these differ from the bulk form of the filling material, and to determine their associated properties.

My research is primarily based around Electron Microscopy, but also incorporates other techniques (modelling & simulations, ED, DSC/TGA, XRD), to better understand the materials.
