Description

Henry Royce Institute at University of Cambridge: Opening Event

10.00 am to 2.30 pm

Monday 26 February 2018

Maxwell Centre, Cavendish Laboratory, JJ Thomson Avenue, Cambridge


The Cambridge Royce opening event will be on Monday 26 February 2018, featuring a welcome address by the Vice-Chancellor of the University, and a series of talks from senior academic investigators highlighting the capabilities of the Royce equipment.


The Henry Royce Facilities at the University of Cambridge are now almost fully installed at the Maxwell Centre, and within nearby laboratory suites in West Cambridge. The Cambridge Royce operates as a national facility, and all equipment is available for use by all UK research institutions and all of UK industry. The majority of Cambridge Royce equipment suites are now available for booking.


The Cambridge Royce comprises state-of-the-art research facilities which support exploration of the theme of "Materials for Energy-Efficient ICT". The equipment includes a range of chemical synthesis suites, UHV and ambient thin film deposition, nanofabrication tools, in situ characterisation, packaging and electrical testing facilities. These may be used to develop both basic research and scale-up and manufacturing within ICT technologies such as batteries, photovoltaics, energy harvesting, low-power semiconductor devices, fuel cells, multiferroics, and superconductors.


In 2016 The Henry Royce Institute for Materials provided the University of Cambridge with £10 million capital investment for state-of-the-art equipment vital for promoting new research focussing on the theme of Materials for Energy-Efficient ICT. The Cambridge Royce facilities comprise fourteen dedicated equipment facilities that are available for use by all UK higher education institutions and research institutions, and all UK industry. The theme of Energy-Efficient ICT focuses on a range of technologies which enable more efficient energy generation, energy storage, and energy use.


The Cambridge Royce facilities would like to thank the School of Physical Sciences, the School of Technology, the Departments of Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, and Materials Science and Metallurgy, for their continued commitment to supporting the Royce facilities through additional funding, staff and infrastructure contributions.
