World-scale challenges, nano-scale solutions

AMD accelerates the disruptive potential of nanomaterials to deliver safe, secure and sustainable impacts in the real world.
We make use of the nanoscale to deliver unique material properties and characteristics that would otherwise be impossible to realise, changing their relationship with the world in which they operate.
By controlling the materials’ thermal, electrical, mechanical and optical properties, we create advanced sensors and electronics which are stronger, lighter, safer and more secure and sustainable. We are already addressing key needs in transport and automotive, consumer and retail, medical and life sciences, and defence and security. However, there is a great deal of scope to apply further applications in other areas.
Together with our key partners, the University of Sussex and the University of Surrey, we are working to commercialise the technologies initially developed in their labs. We bring focus to the research, making sure it is driven to address real-world issues, making use of appropriate R&D funding streams and engaging market-facing partners to capitalise on class-leading intellectual property.
We are developing game-changing technologies, taking them from ‘lab proven’ to realising their value in the real world.

The second generation of nanoscience is fundamentally changing the way that materials react to the environment around them.

Exploiting nanomaterial innovation in high value markets, for a safe, secure and more sustainable future

We are leading the development in multifunction nanomaterials to address market-driven, real-world problems, enabling the next generation of smart structures, sensors, electronics and communications.
As we begin the next era of our evolution, we are harnessing the same vision, ambition and expertise that has propelled us since we started in 2017. Our ambition to transform the world, one nano element at a time, will be realised in the coming decades, creating seismic changes in our existence.
Our technologies will transform our environment and the markets in which we operate – resulting in a better way of life for all of us.

Investing and funding for growth

We are accelerating our investment in 2022 to fund the next stage of our growth strategy, in which we will fast track our capability to innovate and expand our technology base.
As well as providing more funding for university research and development, this next phase of investment and growth will see us establish our internal engineering capability to drive advances in engineering and faster prototyping. This will shorten time to market, putting working prototypes into the hands of our customers quicker, enabling them to appreciate our revolutionary technologies first hand encouraging more rapid commitment to them.
The timing is crucial. We have already created some highly valuable IP but with the competitive landscape evolving all the time in the UK and overseas, this funding will ensure that we remain a leading force in the industry.
