Facility title Overview
Diamond Leeds SAXS Facility The tailored instrument for high-resolving X-ray scattering experiments offers open access to Leeds and other UK-users around the year for the nanostructural fine-analysis of complex soft matter, polymers, bio-materials and advanced solid materials.
Leeds electron microscopy and spectroscopy centre A leading research centre in microscopic and spectroscopic materials characterisation techniques.
Leeds Nanotechnology Cleanroom The 800 m2 Leeds Nanotechnology Cleanroom offers a broad range of fabrication capabilities, including: Photo- and electron beam- lithography, contact and non-contact metrology, physical and chemical vapour deposition, dry etch and deposition, wafer and device bonding, and annealing capabilities, in addition to test, packaging and post-processing.
Nanoscience and nanotechnology facility This facility is for the characterisation analysis of soft matter systems such as hybrid organic/inorganic system.
Particle and materials characterisation Analytical facilities for characterisation of particles, powders, slurries, suspensions, emulsions and solutions.
