NAME focuses on four areas of materials science and engineering.

Foremost, the NAME programme will further develop underpinning capability for thin-film materials deposition and nanoscale doping. 

These capabilities will be applied to develop a new generation of photonic devices, energy efficient technologies and will allow for the manipulation of specific defects to develop quantum devices. 

The programme of work is divided into four technical work packages which are described in the associated sections. Our impact and output activities can also be found on this site.

Work Package 1 is underpinning capability and development, which links to work package 2 on nanoscale photonics, work package 3 on engineering energy and work package 4 on materials for quantum technologies. Work packages 2, 3 and 4 also link together and all feed into work package 5, which is impact and coordination.
