Work With Us

We are keen to collaborate with external research groups in the development of thin film materials for applications in the energy and electronics fields.

Many of the synthetic and characterisation tools within the ACMF can be accessed in the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) programmes through inclusion as an EPSRC facility cost. In the first instance, please contact Professor Brian E. Hayden, the Director of the ACMF.

Commercial projects

In the case of commercial projects, the methodologies and tools are available through ilika Plc which specialises in materials discovery and development for the energy and electronics sectors. For potential projects for high throughput materials discovery utilising the manufacturing pilot cluster tool, please contact Prof Brian E. Hayden at
