A significant aspect of our work is the development and application of new techniques, which can provide a greater understanding of this wide area of science. Processes studied experimentally encompass the biomedical/life sciences and materials science, as well as chemistry. Supporting theoretical work involves the development of models for mass transport and coupled chemical reactions in heterogeneous systems.
The development of nanoscale methods is of particular interest and this has led to recent interest in the use of single walled carbon nanotubes for a variety of applications, including AFM probes, conducting probes and electronic device applications. We are also interested in the application of new organic materials for device applications.
