University of Cambridge - UK

The Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy is one of the leading materials science departments in the world. The Department has an extensive undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programme covering all aspects of materials science. Its research covers a very wide range of materials and techniques, with broad research themes across many topics subjects including materials synthesis and Characterisation. The Department is very well equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation in both materials science and materials engineering. Research is sponsored by about 130 different industries and governments throughout the world. Within the Department, the Electron Microscopy Group, led by Paul Midgley, focuses on the development and application of new electron microscopy techniques to a wide range of materials and devices, often at the atomic or nanoscale, enabling a better understanding of their physical and chemical behaviour based on their structural, electronic and compositional properties.
The Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy has scientific expertise across a broad range of materials topics including device materials, medical and pharmaceutical materials, materials chemistry, structural materials, clean energy and sustainability, nuclear materials and electron microscopy. The Department has approximately 25 Faculty members with a further 20 research fellows, approximately 100 post-doctoral researchers and a similar number of postgraduate students. The Electron Microscopy Group has expertise across a wide range of electron microscopy techniques including electron holography, electron tomography, EELS, STEM, electron diffraction and crystallography.
