We provide bespoke research services to match our clients requirements from state of the art reviews to Prototype tool development.

  • Research Led – Most of our client based work is research and development. All activity is developed based on  standard experimental physics approaches: design of experiment, observation, analysis and recommendation.

  • Data Driven – Large data set analysis, using range of software tools including IDL, python and C/C++

  • Results Orientated – We aim to provide solutions for our clients, which might be in the form of recommendations for technologies, materials or approaches.

Collaborative Development

Materials discovery is born from a union between theory and experiment. Our team can provide access to state of the art materials modelling and simulation tools. Materials properties, performance and characterisation may be accessed through our extensive range of metrology tools either in house or through our strategic partnerships.

  • Advanced Materials Applied Research

  • In situ, in operandi metrologies, measurement tools for advanced multifunctional materials. Development of new tools and access to state of the art systems.

  • Prototyping, inclduing 3D CAD and 3D printing

  • Standardisation, measurement method development and implementation of best practice in your company research labs

  • New Materials Profiling, Design, Manufacture and Application

  • Advanced data analysis tools and materials modelling capability

  • State of the Art research reports – R&D, writing and publication/presentation as required

  • Technical and Academic Research Review

  • UK and European Research programme/proposal reviews and progress monitoring

  • Research, Laboratory and Development Planning

  • Technical Management and Specialist Resourcing

  • Policy Formulation for Government and Industry

Please get in contact with us for any further information or a chance to chat through your needs.


Not only data analysis through bespoke computational and software development but also materials and systems analysis to work out the best solution in terms of materials type and chemistry and technology types.

  • Large data sets – Software methods to evaluate and crunch huge datasets

  • Modelling – Introduce materials and physics based models to help understand your data

  • Simulation – Often necessary to explore ways to better visualise your data

Our own research programmes take huge datasets from X-Ray synchrotron data files to extract real materials understanding in complex in-situ in-operando environments.


Our testing and characterisation facilities are extensive and Electrosciences has access to a very large set of tools and measurement apparatus for advanced functional materials via our strategic partners.

  • Piezoelectrics – Charge, displacement, strain, PE-Loop, Strain-Field loop, in situ X-Ray diffraction (Field, Temperature and stress), in situ neutron diffraction, LIMM (Laser intensity modulation method), Lock-in methods, d33, berlincourt methods and more

  • Pyroelectrics – LIMM, pyro-coefficients

  • Ferroelectrics – Polarisation-Electric Field (PE) loop method, Sawyer Tower and virtual earth methods, electronics design and prototyping, instrumentation and lock in methods and more

  • Magnetoelectric/multiferroic – In situ methods based on magnetic field excitation and/or electric field excitation for coupling factor assessment

The list is extensive and so please do contact us for any further information. Remember, one of the company’s strengths is to design and prototype new apparatus which is either not commercially available or extra novelty and innovation is required.
