Advanced composites facility opened

Posted on 01/03/2015 by IED

Greg Clark, Minister of State for Universities, Science and Cities, has opened the University of Southampton's Advanced Composite Materials Facility. The facility, the only one of its kind in the UK, will develop and manufacture new and advanced materials for semiconductor electronics, data storage, photonics and energy harvesting, conversion and storage.

One of the first projects will be the development and manufacture of a new form of solid state battery in collaboration with Ilika Technologies, a spin-out from the university. This involves the transfer back of experience gained at Ilika in the discovery, optimisation and synthesis of new materials.
