Description

LMCC is located within the Materials Department of Loughborough University. The purpose of the centre is to provide a high quality materials characterisation facility to support research within Loughborough University, the wider academic community and for industrial clients.

It has a wide range of analytical techniques, some of which have capabilities unique within the UK. The main areas of expertise are Electron and Optical Microscopy, Surface Analysis, X-Ray Diffraction and Thermal Analysis. The facilities are supported by a team of specialists who enable researchers to gain the maximum benefits from the instrumentation.

The LMCC not only makes use of sophisticated analytical techniques but continues to develop new methods and capabilities. It has worked with leading instrument manufacturers to help them improve their products and shift the boundaries in materials analysis.
