Our group combines elements of optics, nanofabrication, synchrotron science and X-ray Free Electron Lasers, to develop new approaches to imaging materials and structures at the atomic, molecular and cellular level.
Our group use colloid chemistry to research environmental and agricultural soil systems. We also study pharmaceutical products that utilise colloidal particles and systems.
Our research focuses on creating, understanding and controlling materials at the nanometer scale.
Our group conducts a range of both fundamental and applied research to expand the bounds of analytical science.
I study the surfaces of semiconductor crystals, particularly diamond, and how they react to the world around and within us.
Our group explores the complex mechanisms behind cellular and sub-cellular events and processes. We also seek to develop novel bio-imaging modalities and instrumentation for new diagnostic and therapeutic tools.
Our group studies the principles of self-assembly in lipid membranes, peptide fibrillogenezis and peptide-membrane interactions.
Our team is interested in the functionalisation of technologically interesting materials such as diamond, graphene, silicon and organic semiconductors via the chemical modification of the surface and surface transfer doping.
Our group focuses on creating, understanding and controlling materials at the nanometer scale. We explore chemical and molecular properties and processes at surfaces and at interfaces.
Our group prepare Polymer Inclusion Membranes (PIMs) and polymer-based microspheres for use as small-scale chemical reactors and sensors for biological, environmental and industrial applications.
Our group exploit powerful light sources to study molecules relevant to pharmaceutics, atmospheric and aerosol chemistry, and even the interstellar medium.
Our group researches various forms of propagation-based x-ray imaging, and are developing quantitative full field imaging techniques using polychromatic x-ray sources.
van Riessen - Experimental condensed matter and materials physics, and coherent X-ray imaging development
Our group develops novel methods of probing condensed matter and material properties using coherent X-ray imaging methods, electron spectroscopy, and nanofabricated devices.
