Welcome to the Materials Research Institute
A centre of excellence providing the platform to support dynamic inter-disciplinary materials research, in collaboration with academia, research councils and industry professionals.
Queen Mary has a strong tradition of materials-based research. The creation of the Materials Research Institute (MRI) brings together a range of expertise within several Schools: Engineering and Materials, Physics and Astronomy, Biological and Chemical Sciences, and Dentistry to create a coherent interdisciplinary activity focused on five key research themes.
- Simultaneous topographical, electrical and optical microscopy of optoelectronic devices at the nanoscale. Nanoscale
- Salt Templating with Pore Padding: Hierarchical Pore Tailoring towards Functionalised Porous Carbons. ChemSusChem vol. 10, (1) 199-209.
- Highly stretchable polymer semiconductor films through the nanoconfinement effect. Science vol. 355, (6320) 59-64.
