Welcome to Metallurgy and Materials. This discipline provides an understanding of how materials behave and how they can be used and improved; essential to the development of new products.
- University of Birmingham scientists are paving the way to swap the lithium in lithium-ion batteries with sodium, according to research published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
- As scientists explore the possibility of a superconductor capable of operating at room temperature, some superconducting phenomena are still not fully understood. Dr Mark Laver, a Birmingham Fellow and Senior Lecturer in the School of Metallurgy and Materials, has made a significant breakthrough.
- The University of Birmingham has been awarded a slice of £5.5 million funding for a project to improve equality, diversity and inclusion in engineering and physical sciences.
