Our research focuses on resolving the manufacturing challenges associated with compound semiconductor production. We hope to advance compound semiconductor research to the point where these materials are as ubiquitous as silicon in the manufacturing industry. This will enable new technologies, and will be vital to support industry in the UK and beyond.
The research performed within the CS Hub focuses around eight original EPSRC funded work packages. As Future Manufacturing Hub grants are flexible, to keep up with the most cutting edge research, we expect the research and expertise encompassed by the CS Hub to evolve over time. The flexible funding provided by EPSRC will be used to ensure only the most relevant and ground breaking research remains within the Hub remit.
The eight work packages of the CS Hub are divided up into twoGrand Challenges, which represent goals and themes across the work packages and project as a whole.
Current areas of expertise, as defined by the original eight work packages are:
