We are very pleased to be featured in ESRF Highlights 2020 – their annual round-up of the most exciting experiments carried out at the ESRF in 2020. Read more on page 164 at http://www.esrf.eu/Apache_files/Highlights/2020/index.html#/page/166

Finden Ltd. to partner with University of Sheffield in new Faraday Industry Fellowship

We are looking forward to working with the University of Sheffield on the new Faraday Industry Fellowship, a collaborative energy storage research project. This is an innovative programme that strengthens ties between battery researchers working in industry and academia. Each fellowship enables academics and industrialists to undertake a mutually beneficial, electrochemical energy storage research project […]

Neutron tomography of pistons at IMAT – ISIS Neutron and Muon Source

A team of scientists from Finden Ltd (Dr Stephen Price, Dr Simon Jacques and Prof Andrew Beale) in collaboration with Infineum UK Ltd (Dr Nathan Hollingsworth, Dr Matthew Irving) have used IMAT to help understand where and how coking occurs on engine components. This understanding will help develop more durable, fuel efficient lubricants.​​ Read the […]

New solution to the parallax problem in X-ray scattering/diffraction experiments

Our scientists’ new work on finding a solution to the parallax problem in X-ray scattering/diffraction experiments has been published in a new paper, “DLSR: a solution to the parallax artefact in X‐ray diffraction computed tomography data,” published in the Journal of Applied Crystallography. The work was performed in collaboration with the creator of the TOPAS software […]

New work on the chemical and crystallographic heterogeneities present in a Ni/NiO-YSZ solid oxide fuel cell electrode after re-oxidation

In our latest work, we look with at the chemical and crystallographic heterogeneities present in a Ni/NiO-YSZ solid oxide fuel cell electrode after re-oxidation. The research was carried out in collaboration with Dr Thomas Heenan from the Electrochemical Innovation Lab (EIL) at UCL Chemical Engineering, UCL Chemistry and ESRF. The solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) anode […]

Our latest work on the characterisation of NMC electodes used in Li-ion batteries at the PCCP published

Our latest work on the characterisation of NMC electodes used in Li-ion batteries at the PCCP has been published in a new paper, “Exploring cycling induced crystallographic change in NMC with X-ray diffraction computed tomography” in the journal Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics. The research was carried out in collaboration with the Electrochemical Innovation Lab (EIL) […]

Methane activation via integrated Membrane Reactors – project results

The results of our MEMERE project show novel membranes and catalysts reduce greenhouse gas emissions in chemical industry The production of ethylene (C2H4) is one of the largest carbon dioxide (CO2) emitting industries in Europe. We have worked with EU-funded researchers to develop a cost-efficient, environmentally friendly process that produces higher yields than current technologies […]

Dr. Antony Vamvakeros webinar on X-ray diffraction computed tomography July 21 – available to watch online

Synchrotron X-ray diffraction computed tomography (XRD-CT) is a marriage between powder diffraction and computed tomography using a “pencil” beam approach. The spatially-resolved signals obtained with XRD-CT can reveal information that would otherwise be lost in bulk measurements, which opens up new possibilities in functional material characterization. In this webinar, our research scientist Dr. Antony Vamvakeros […]

Interview with The Interreg Baltic Sea Region project CAROTS

We have been interviewed by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region project CAROTS as one of their intermediary service providers. CAROTS is all about establishing a new type of private or public-private company: Commercial Analytical Research Organisations (CAROs). CAROs act as intermediary service providers between scientists as well as research facilities and industry. They bridge the world […]
