Industries & expertise
Imperial College London’s world leading expertise in materials is provided by researchers from the Faculty of Engineering, Natural Sciences and Medicine.
Our researchers can provide solutions for sectors as diverse as healthcare, transport and communications – and have worked on multi-disciplinary projects ranging from advice on bone regeneration to testing the durability of solar panels.
Whether you need help solving technological problems within energy, environmental protection, transport, electronics and healthcare, or detailed understanding of materials properties within either natural or extreme conditions, we can find the right people to help you solve a problem flexibly and responsively.
We have helped clients solve a range of problems:
Bone regeneration, diagnostic platforms, tissue engineering, surgical technology and renewable polymer composites.
Biocomposites, ceramics, nanocomposites, non-destructive testing, structural applications, mechanical properties and characterisation and energy storage.
Optical and Semiconductor devices
Metamaterials, plastic electronics, transistors, MEMS waveguides, amplifiers, photovoltaics, sensors and diodes/LEDs.
Lubricants, membranes, microfluidics, filtration, semiconductors, protective casing and sustainable systems.
Synthesis, catalysis, sustainability, modelling, molecular design, phase behaviour testing as well as analysis and characterisation.
Soft Matter Systems
Dr Stefano Angioletti-Uberti and his group use both deterministic and stochastic modelling (including Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics simulations) to study Soft Matter systems, such as polymers and gels, and their application.
In particular, the group focuses on how coating materials with molecules of both synthetic and biological origin can be used to tune their behaviour and enhance their performance for specific tasks.
Applications include controlled catalysis in polymer-based Nanoreactors, nanoparticle and polymers for drug delivery and bio-sensing applications, biocompatible polymer adhesives as well as the self-assembly of functional structure exploiting ligand-receptor based interactions.
