Dr David Walker, Platform Manager of the X-ray Diffraction (XRD) Research Technology Platform (RTP) has won £1.5M of funding from the EPSRC to house a National Electron Diffraction Facility for Nanomaterial Structural studies. The award was won alongside Professor Richard Walton (Department of Chemistry) and Professor Richard Beanland (Department of Physics), as well as collaborators at the University of Southampton, led by Professor Simon Coles. As part of the funding, each institution will receive a first of its kind commercial electron diffractometer and a technical post to facilitate the project.
We are delighted to announce the launch of two new Research Technology Platforms (RTPs). The X-Ray Photoemission Spectroscopy (XPS RTP) and Warwick Centre for Ultrafast Spectroscopy (WCUS RTP) are the latest to join, taking the total to 12 RTPs formed since the programme’s inception in 2014. The RTPs provide researchers at Warwick, and externally, to access the state of art equipment and technical expertise to enable their world-class research.
More information on the XPS and WCUS RTPs can be found on the website, and in the RTP brochure. The RTPs provide an integrated network of world-class facilities and expertise that enable researchers to perform outstanding science. Any researcher at Warwick can get access to these technologies, which include electron microscopy, bioinformatics, polymer characterisation, scientific computing and much more!
