University of Leeds
The School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering has exceptionally well-equipped laboratories for high frequency electronics and photonics, a two-storey class-100 cleanroom and III-V semiconductor MBE facility, and a suite of laboratories for molecular nanotechnology and bioelectronics including co-focal microscopy, AFM, and DPS.
The School of Physics & Astronomy hosts state-of-the-art surface and thin film analysis facilities, including XPS, SPM, and spectroscopic ellipsometry. There are strong on-going collaborations on lipid bilayer systems, photocleavable molecules and liquid crystals with the School of Chemistry, providing access to comprehensive synthesis and structural determination facilities, and small molecule libraries.
The Nanocharacterization & Nanomaterials Group provides microstructural, nanochemical and bulk property characterization, from fundamental studies to product design and fabrication, and hosts e.g. the EPSRC Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Equipment Facility, and the LEMAS Centre in Electron Microscopy.
The Leeds Asbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology specializes in all major techniques for high-resolution structure determination of large molecules, including X-ray crystallography, NMR, electron microscopy mass spectrometry, surface plasmon resonance and time-resolved spectroscopies. These are
complemented by theoretical approaches such as molecular modelling and bioinformatics.
