Event description

Description

The METaL Project's first taster session of 2019 provides a rare opportunity to visit the AIM laboratories, and hear from experts about the equipment and it's capabilities.

AIM is a £9M EPSRC/Welsh Government funded integrated scientific imaging facility for Wales that can provide imaging and analytical capabilities across several length scales from Angstroms to centimetres. The session will provide an overview of current technologies used for the characterisation of materials such as surface analysis, polymorphism and trace analysis.

The centre has already supported the following types of projects:

- Multi-functional materials, nanomaterials, fuel cells, electronic interconnects, organic electronics, photovoltaics and catalysis

- Composites materials for aerospace, automotive, marine and renewable energy

- Coatings and surface engineering

The facility includes:

- A suite of high resolution scanning microscopes

- A focussed ion beam SEM

- A correlated optical microscopy suite

- Plus a TEM & X-Ray imaging suite
