ADEPT – Advanced Devices by ElectroPlaTing


The ADEPT approach

We have unique experience in electrodeposition that will allow us to produce thermoelectric, memory and IR detection devices at the smallest size, in hosts with features with sizes from 10s of µm to below 10 nm. In this new programme we will apply this expertise to four challenges that will push the limits of the techniques and pave the way toward their applications in real fabrication processes:

Alloy control

Delivery of specific compositions, doping at a chosen level and production of interfaces between materials.

Our team combines the key expertise areas to deliver on these challenges: electrochemistry (Prof Phil Bartlett, Southampton), synthesis of reagents (Prof Gill Reid, Southampton), fluid behaviour in pores (Prof Mike George, Nottingham), growth templates (Prof Andrew Hector, Southampton), functional characterisation (Prof David Smith, Southampton), electron microscopy (Dr Richard Beanland, Warwick) and device fabrication (Prof Kees de Groot, Southampton).
