Our Research Facilities
Our Cohorts benefit from access to the world-leading facilities and equipment situated in all host institutions for the duration of their doctoral research, providing an outstanding research environment for students.
The University of Sheffield
Royce Discovery Centre
The facility takes materials and processing concepts, and develops these from basic principles through analytical and experimental processes, with the aim of proving the concept in terms of feasibility and applicability for industrial use.
Royce Translational Centre
The Royce Translational Centre acts as an open access centre of excellence, incorporating both new and existing state-of-the-art powder manufacture and processing facilities.
The University of Manchester
Henry Royce Institute
Operating with its Hub at The University of Manchester, Royce is a Partnership of nine leading institutions – The Universities of Cambridge, Imperial College London, Liverpool, Leeds, Oxford, Sheffield, The National Nuclear Laboratory, and UKAEA. Royce’s Associate Partners are The Universities of Cranfield and Strathclyde.
Through the Researcher & Student Equipment Access Schemes, members of the AMS CDT Cohorts can access equipment and facilities at all of the above listed institutions.
National X-Ray Computed Tomography (NXCT)
National X-ray Computed Tomography (NXCT) is the National Research Facility for lab-based X-ray computed tomography, providing an unparalleled combination of 3D imaging facilities and data analysis, research knowledge and technical experience to support users.
National Graphene Institute
The National Graphene Institute brings together the leading edge of fundamental science in 2D materials with the latest equipment and engineering expertise in an unparalleled offer to industry partners.
Photon Science Institute
Located in the Alan Turing Building, the Photon Science Institute provides researchers with access to a suite of lasers and other instrumentation for undertaking innovative science research.
Dublin City University & University College Dublin
I-Form Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre
Our research is focused on materials processing, and the application of digital technologies to better develop, model and control that process. Materials processing can refer to any process that takes raw material A and, through a series of steps, transforms that material into end product B.
Advanced Processing Technology Research Centre
The Advanced Processing Technology Research Centre (APT) focuses on state of the art research activities in the areas of Production Technology, Product Design & Sustainability, Micro and Nano Systems Technology, Advanced Materials Engineering and Bio Systems.
