The Bragg Centre for Materials Research will also be supported by this £96m development. It will enable the discovery, creation, characterisation and exploitation of materials engineered at the atomic level. The centre’s research brings together the fundamental understanding, design and fabrication of materials with the potential for their exploitation in new devices, systems and applications.
