Project Details


This instrument is a strategic priority for replacement and upgrade in the Material and Chemical Characterisation (MC2) Core Research Facility, used by Bath researchers across the EPSRC remit. The instrumentation will replace existing aged equipment, and significantly enhance the capabilities of the techniques, with a resulting step-change for the characterisation of samples across our research portfolio. Building on Bath's proven track record of managing research infrastructure, we anticipate long-term sustainability of the proposed instrument and high levels of usage, with a user base spanning undergraduates, PhDs, ECRs and EPSRC research leaders alike. The requested instruments align with University of Bath strategic priorities, the EPSRC World Class Labs vision, and all three of the investment objectives of this call: Underpinning Multi-user Equipment, Co-location of Equipment and Invest to Save.
