Welcome to the York Nanocentre‌

The YORK Nanocentre provides access to facilities and services for materials research on the nanoscale. Our aim is to support interdisciplinary research across academia and industry.

Background to the Nanocentre

The York JEOL Nanocentre was formally established in 2007 to create a world class centre of excellence for in-situ and environmental aberration-corrected electron imaging and spectroscopy co-founded by Professor Dame Pratibha Gai DBE, FREng, FRS and Professor Edward Boyes, FRMS, FInstP.

Latterly, the York Nanocentre has expanded its user base and activity across cognate departments at York including Physics, Electronic Engineering, Chemistry, Environmental Sciences, Biology and Archaeology, in collaboration with external users from academia and industry.

More recently, through the Nanocentre, the University has joined the SuperSTEM consortium, the EPSRC National Facility for Advanced Electron Microscopy.
