Colour science analytical A high level of expertise in a number of colour science analytical techniques.
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.
Flow-Xl: A New UK Facility for Analysis of Crystallisation in Flow Systems Flow-Xl enables the in-situ, time-resolved characterisation of crystallisation processes in highly controlled environments using combined X-ray diffraction and Raman Spectroscopy.
High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) HPLC systems provide rapid analysis of mixtures and the production of high quality purified materials, particularly where classical separation methods are unsuccessful.
Leeds electron microscopy and spectroscopy centre A leading research centre in microscopic and spectroscopic materials characterisation techniques.
Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA) LIDA's integrated research campus supports large scale research through infrastructure training and services for secure data handling.
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.
Mass spectrometry Our mass spectrometry facilities provide cutting edge, highly sensitive determination of molecular weight and analysis of mixtures.
Microfluidics and interfacial fluid mechanics Supports fundamental and applied research to understand and control the fluid flow environment, essential for addressing efficiency of industrial processes and in creating milli- and micro-scale flow devices to assess the role of flow in chemical and biological systems.
Molecular beam epitaxy facility Our in-house Oxford Instruments V80H III–V MBE machine gives us the ability to grow layered compound semiconductor structures
Nanoscience and nanotechnology facility This facility is for the characterisation analysis of soft matter systems such as hybrid organic/inorganic system.
NMR spectroscopy Solution/liquid state nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy across five spectrometers operating at 7.05, 9.4, 11.75 (x2) and 14.1 T, corresponding to 1H Larmor frequencies of 300, 400, 500 and 600 MHz respectively.
Particle and materials characterisation Analytical facilities for characterisation of particles, powders, slurries, suspensions, emulsions and solutions.
Robotic liquid handling and screening Plate based screening methods enable high throughput assays to be performed. These assays are accelerated where the robotic liquid handler can be used for plate preparation.
