We have world-class labs across Europe specialising in nano-electronics, information technology, infrastructures and interaction design.

Positioned at the forefront of discovery in physics, the core of our exploratory research has been, and continues to be, experimental physics supported by excellence in theory. We maintain a very powerful core of fundamental physics in all its diversity.

Our determination to improve quality, cultivate technology and achieve reliability is at the forefront of all of our research.

Our exploratory research areas of specialism include quantum information processing, spintronics, synthetic biology and microscopy. We are currently working on technological advancements in products such as sensors, memory, programmable logic, and next-generation electron microscopes.

An open and collaborative approach to research

Our open research environment and international team of researchers facilitate collaboration on a range of research projects. Working together with the Hitachi Group and Centre of Innovation we discover the future components and principles of disruptive technologies.

We have successfully delivered a number of programmes and projects including: 

  • The first single electron memory (1993)
  • First single electron logic (1995)
  • Work on Single-electron parametron memory cell which led to the development of a major activity on quantum computation (2000-2004)
  • World’s first spin-injection Hall effect (2009)
  • Electron Microscope Optimisation
  • First low voltage ferromagnet Device in p-n
  • World’s first anti-ferromagnet sensor (2011)
  • World’s first rod-induced vortex beam (2013)
  • Piezo control Current Induced Domain Wall Motion (2013)
