Welcome to Materials Physics at the University of Sussex!

Materials Physics is a recently-established stream of research at Sussex, led by Professor Alan Dalton, Dr Alice King and Dr Conor Boland, which focuses on understanding structure-property relationships in nanomaterials, particularly two-dimensional nanomaterials such as graphene and molybdenum disulfide. Our research seeks to use low-cost, scalable solution processing techniques to develop these materials towards applications including printed electronics, strain sensors, energy storage devices, and bio-interface materials.
