Digitally enabled surface function modification for wide area applications
The fabrication of superhydrophobic surfaces is the focus of intense research globally. There are many potential applications for the technology because of the potential to accurately channel water, reduce corrosion, reduce cleaning cycles and therefore water consumption and to possibly reduce the adhesion of biological contamination. Additional applications of interest include biomedical diagnostics, micro fuel cells and water harvesting devices but these all call for the development of patternable wettability control.

High Rate Additive Manufacture using Holographic Beam Shaping (HBS)
The project will focus on high rate production of 3D plastic and metal parts using holographic beam shaping (HBS) to perform selective laser sintering (SLS). Current additive manufacturing (AM) techniques are reliant upon electron and laser beam technologies to selectively melt a small area.

Suitability of a liquid TEM cell to study calcium phosphate nucleation
Here, we use and assess an in-situ liquid TEM cell to study solution-phase self-assembly of calcium phosphate nanoaggregates where nucleation is driven by dissolution of a bioactive glass. We aim to increase understanding of solution-phase nucleation mechanisms of biomaterials. And how this can be applied to the mineralisation of organic self-assembly macromolecules, the design and construction of smart materials for dental, orthopaedic, sensing and drug delivery applications, etc.
