Experimental Materials Research

We have in house facilities and the experimental physicists with the know-how to synthesise the new materials we model in the theoretical phase. These two teams work together to iron out flaws, revisit expectations and develop entirely new ways of creating and engineering.

With many years’ experience in the field of inorganic materials research our mission is to explore and evolve new materials that improve the performance, life expectancy, power density and environmental impact of electrical and electronic equipment. Typical areas of research include energy storage, electric traction, power generation and power semiconductors.
