Materials processing for future technology 

 Our Capabilities

The SCFED Project draws its strength from the diversity of experience, skills and facilities that it integrates. These capabilities are provided by a diverse set of established research groups with access to the latest scientific equipment who actively engage with projects other than SCFED.

If any of our capabilities is of interest for your work please Contact Us via and we will put you in contact with the appropriate members of the SCFED Project team.
