Advanced Material Development (AMD) has been set up as a commercial enterprise to fund programmes of development and related research in materials nanotechnology which are judged to offer practicable, effective routes to licensed technology and know-how which in turn can be taken profitably to market through a variety of commercial arrangements. Some such potential partnerships are already identified.
AMD aims to advance this materials research to commercial success and beyond and to continue delivering a funding pipeline to the best university departments in the UK.
AMD’s initial partnership with the University of Sussex Material Physics department will focus on 3-4 projects developing viable applications for many global challenges including packaging and food waste, transportation, healthcare and anti-counterfeiting.
Professor Alan Dalton and his twenty strong team at the University of Sussex, is at the forefront of international efforts to understand and explore the fundamental nature and attributes of ‘two-dimensional’ nanomaterials such as graphene, and thereby provide some of the bridges to the multiplicity of potentially beneficial applications with far-reaching implications for the human challenges of global sustainability.
Prof. Hongxia Wang
We speak with Professor Hongxia Wang from QUT about a new project that hopes to utilize graphene and other low-cost carbon materials to produce commercially viable, ultra low-cost, flexible perovskite solar cells.
Moti Segev & Vlad Shalaev
In this interview, AzoNano speaks to Professor Moti Segev and Professor Vladimir Shalaev, who made surprising discoveries about photonic time crystals that challenge existing research and theories.
Siyu Chen, Ph.D.
In this interview, we discuss a new approach to surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy that utilizes nano-pockets to capture target molecules, ensuring a highly sensitive way to detect chemical processes.
