Sheffield awarded National Centre contract
A cutting-edge University of Sheffield research facility, which studies advances in semiconductors used in the internet, solar cells, DVD players and gas detection, has received a £10 million renewal contract, enabling academic experts throughout the UK to continue making technological breakthroughs. EPSRC National Centre for III-V Technologies, based in the University´s Centre for Nanoscience and Technology, is set to benefit from the cash over the next five years, to support research in III-V semiconductor materials and devices, which play a fundamental role in many of the technologies which transform everyday life. EPSRC National Centre for IIIV Technologies at Sheffield. The Centre has grown considerably from very modest facilities. It acts as a centre of excellence, with its primary role to supply a wide range of well characterised, state-of-the-art III-V epitaxial layers and a comprehensive range of prototype device fabrication services.
