Material Systems for Extreme Environments (XMat)

This 5 year, £4.2M research project is funded by the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council). It started on the 1st February 2013 and is led by Professor Jon Binner from the University of Birmingham. Our project partners are Professors Bill Lee and Mike Finnis from Imperial College London’s Materials department and Professor Mike Reece from the School of Engineering and Materials Science at Queen Mary University of London.

The overall objective of this programme is to establish the UK’s capability to discover and understand new materials that can operate under increasingly extreme conditions, thus enabling a wide range of new technologies. Our vision is to develop the required understanding of how the processing, microstructures and properties of materials systems operating in extreme environments interact to the point where materials with the required performance can be designed and then manufactured.
