University of Manchester Key Developments

Morgan Advanced Materials plc Announces New Joint Development Agreement with the University of Manchester

Morgan Advanced Materials plc has announced a new joint development agreement with The University of Manchester, aimed at scaling up a new process for manufacturing graphene. The graphene is also lightweight, chemically inert and has a large surface area which means, with further research and testing, it could change the way think about electrical and chemical engineering.

Paul Redmond Appoints as University of Manchester's Director of Student Life for the Directorate for the Student Experience

Dr. Paul Redmond has been appointed as the University of Manchester's Director of Student Life for the Directorate for the Student Experience (DSE). Paul is joining the Directorate from the University of Liverpool, where he has been the Director of Employability and Educational Opportunities for eight years, and is bringing with him the expertise that comes with almost 30 years spent working in the sector. As an expert in the graduate job market, with strong links to industry and having published academic papers, articles and books on the topic, he will be using these skills to lead the Careers Service, Counselling Service, Disability Support Office, Sport, Access Summit and the Student Information, Advice and Guidance Service. Paul will be working alongside colleagues across the University to support students' needs and improve their wellbeing and employability.

FEI and University of Manchester Announce Collaboration Agreement for Metals Research

FEI and The University of Manchester announced their collaboration on the Metals Lab at The University of Manchester's Electron Microscopy Centre in the School of Materials. The lab will focus on steels and non-ferrous alloys research in an effort to develop high-performance materials for use in automotive, aerospace, nuclear, oil & gas, and other industrial sectors where advanced metallic alloys play a critical role. A multiscale, three-dimensional (3D) correlative imaging workflow is applied at the Metals Lab to understand the nature of life-limiting degradation processes over a wide range of spatial scales. MicroCT equipment is used to identify areas of interest (such as cracks or pits), which are then evaluated using the high-resolution Quanta(TM) 3D and Nova NanoLab(TM) DualBeam(TM) focused ion beam (FIB)/scanning electron microscopes (SEMs) and 3D slice and view reconstruction software from FEI. The Titan(TM) G2 80-200 transmission electron microscope (TEM) with SuperEDX(TM) is used to provide atomic-scale imaging and compositional analysis, in both 2 and 3D. FEI's Avizo(R) software is used to visualize, correlate and combine datasets recorded from this suite of tools. The Talos(TM) TEM is also installed in the lab for nanoscale materials characterization, while the high performance of the aberration-corrected Titan is used for more advanced research. The multiscale workflow permits investigations of the root causes of behavior and failure at the atomic scale, while at the same time, ensuring that those small-scale observations accurately represent the structure and composition of the material at larger scales. This ability to characterize the same sample on different length scales is crucial to improve properties like strength, creep, fatigue and corrosion of metals, where these macroscopic properties are linked to microscopic effects down to the atomic scale.
