Dr Mariotti and Prof Maguire from the Engineering Research Institute (ERI) at the Ulster University  have been successful in securing a large Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council - EPSRC award (~£2.8m) to demonstrate scale-up for nanomaterials manufacturing.

The University of Cambridge is leading the Advanced Nanotube Application and Manufacturing (ANAM) Initiative where the University of Ulster is bringing their world-leading expertise in atmospheric pressure plasmas and nanoparticles. The proposal underwent EPSRC’s highly competitive selection three-stage process (including interview) that ranked Cambridge-Ulster partnership first out of 85 applications. This EPSRC Functional materials initiative is focused on advancing the UK’s manufacturing capability, developing new and exciting functional materials, and accelerating the translation of the science of functional materials.This project will deliver manufacturing technologies for large scale production of advanced functional materials which are based on carbon nanotubes and nanoparticles. ANAM includes a range of industrial partners which will “absorb” suitable technologies for direct integration in their manufacturing processes.

The award demonstrates once more the high level and credibility of the research produced by Dr Mariotti and Prof Maguire, who are now currently investigators for three EPSRC-funded research programs in addition to several others (e.g. Leverhulme, NSF, Royal Society, InvestNI etc.). Their research on nanofabrication is world-leading, producing unique nanomaterials with exceptional properties. One of the major strength of both Mariotti’s and Maguire’s groups is their strong expertise in plasmas which are at the basis of all their EPSRC-funded projects.
