Welcome to CAFMaD
The Centre for Advanced Functional Materials and Devices (CAFMaD) was established in September 2006 as a joint research venture between Aberystwyth University and Bangor University. This is part of an £11M Higher Education Council for Wales (HEFCW) funded Reconfiguration & Collaboration Project. CAFMaD has been awarded £2.9M of funding for the first five years of operation with the aim of developing a world class programme of science and engineering in Wales.
The Centre’s members are brought together from the Institute of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (IMAPS) at Aberystwyth University and the School of Chemistry and School of Electronics at Bangor University.
The expertise and facilities within CAFMaD have been streamed into four broad research areas:
It is intended that this research will be underpinned by leading edge characterisation and modelling methods.
The Collaborative activities of the centre have wound down since the end of the Research and Enterprise Partnership but the Aber-Bangor Strategic Alliance still provides a collaborative framework for collaborations on a project by project basis.
