Advanced Imaging of Materials (AIM)
The Advanced Imaging of Materials (AIM) Facility is a £10M EPSRC/Welsh Government funded integrated scientific imaging and characterisation facility. Capable of providing imaging and analytical results across scaling from centimetres to Angstroms with multiple modalities. The Facility is also linked to large scale private and publicly funded facilities such as the UK’s national synchrotron - Diamond Light Source and ISIS Neutron & Muon Source - that can extend this capability (in both directions) to meters and picometers.
We are a collaborative and interdisciplinary facility within the Faculty of Science and Engineering, supporting academic and industrial research: working across engineering, biological materials, life and earth sciences, and supporting engineering, manufacturing, healthcare, and heritage sectors, as well as acting as a bridge for industry to the STFC Facilities.
