Current Research

  • Micro and Nano fabrication using: Proton Beam Writing (PBW), Nano Imprint Lithograph (NIL) and mold fabrication

  • Micro & Nanofluidic lab on chip devices for single molecule detection and particle separation

  • Materials modification using ion beams, e.g. Graphene, Magnetic materials and Diamond films.

  • Ion source development for next generation ion nano-probes.
