Analysis of nanomaterials

Materials with nanometre-scale size are increasingly utilised in technology and consumer product development due to their unique properties.

In the Nanoanalysis Group at NPL, we are developing a wide range of methodologies for the correct handling and characterisation of such nanomaterials.

At NPL, a wide range of scanning probe microscopy techniques are available, including nanomechanical analysis, force spectroscopy, optical spectroscopy and electrochemical analysis. This allows us to study complex systems ranging from the chemical/structural analysis of soft surfaces and bio-nano systems, to nanoparticles and their interaction with surfaces.
