Functional Materials

Functional  Materials  play  an  ever-increasing  role in  our modern society. They form the basis for a wide range of technologies. Computation, communication, storage and displaying of information would not work without them, making them essential for the entire IT sector. The same is true for the generation of and the storage of energy, for mobility and for sensing. Functional Materials encompasses all materials types including inorganic, organic, hybrid and nano materials, soft matter and interfaces with specific functions such as:


Adaptive materials which are used in technologies such as sensors, actuators, memories and energy harvesters; these materials show a large response to small stimuli. Modelling and advanced characterization enables us to optimize their performance and enhance their capabilities.


Electronic materials which encompass semiconductors, dielectrics, ferroelectrics, half metals and superconductors. Warwick research includes epitaxial growth of a range of electronic materials; fabrication of devices from the materials and demonstration of their functionality for applications in healthcare, the low-carbon economy and information processing.


Magnetic materials which are used in the creation and distribution of electricity. They are used for the storage of data, used in body scanners as well as a range of applications where they are attached to or implanted into the body. The need for efficient generation and use of electricity is dependent on improved magnetic materials and designs. Warwick has expertise in spintronics, superconductivity and molecular magnets.


Optical materials which are used in the construction of lenses, mirrors, windows, prisms, polarizers, detectors, and modulators. These materials serve to refract, reflect, transmit, disperse.


Separation Materials. Materials in separations technologies: (1) Structural Membranes: Structural membranes perform containment and flow functions on the macro level. Developing new materials for structural members with greater corrosion, erosion and wear resistance, and other enhanced properties will provide operational energy savings in terms of longer equipment

lifetimes, fewer shutdowns, and novel equipment designs that conserve energy. However, such



structural improvements will result in limited energy reduction of the separation process. (2) Separation Agents: Separation agents perform on the micro or molecular level interacting chemically and physically with the components requiring separation. technologies. Development of new and advanced materials separating agents for high-energy separation technologies.

Advanced Nanomaterials

Nanomaterials are high importance nowadays in most fields such as Medicine, Chemotherapy, Drug delivery, Manufacturing processes, Paints, etc., because of their novel characteristics like increased strength, Chemical reactivity or conductivity. Artificially made nanomaterials are those which are engineered for an intention with the physio-chemical properties for a specific purpose or function. The methods of preparing nanomaterials also differ based on the purpose. Nanotechnology is highly used in detecting devices  as  their  nanostructure  with greater  surface  area  per  weight  allows  the  electrical properties of the detecting elements to be changed easily. Nanotechnology controls matter at the atomic and molecular scale. Several applications of nanomaterials are used extensively in catalysis  to  boost  up  chemical  reactions.  Polymer  based  nanomaterials  have  high significance in Analytical Chemistry, separation process and research as they can amplify the sensitivity and improve the stability of traditional materials and methods. Nanomaterials are one of the best cleaning agent for the environment. They are used in water purification processes, detect chemical and biological agents in the soil and air, desalination. Materials can be made to be stronger, lighter, more durable, more reactive, better electrical conductors using nanotechnology.
