Materials Physics Group

Welcome to Materials Physics at the University of Sussex

Welcome to Materials Physics at the University of Sussex!

We are a newly-established research group, led by Prof Alan Dalton, studying structure-property relationships in nanomaterials and nanostructures.

The group's research interests focus on understanding the fundamental structure-property relationships in materials containing one- and two- dimensional materials such as carbon nanotubes, graphene and other layered nanomaterials. We are particularly interested in developing viable applications for nano-structured organic composites (mechanical, electrical and thermal). We are also interested in the directed-assembly and self-assembly of nanostructures into functional macrostructures and more recently interfacing biological materials with synthetic inorganic and organic materials and associated applications.
