Some equipment in the David Bullett Nanofabrication Facility

We provide access and training on specialist equipment for micro-scale and nano-scale fabrication for University of Bath researchers and external organisations.

About us

We take a holistic and multidisciplinary approach to areas such as energy materials, sustainable construction materials, materials for advanced sensors, catalysts for the circular economy, and more. Ranging from fundamental research to manufacturing processes, sustainability remains at the core of our activities where experimental and computational techniques work hand-in-hand.
