Purchase of a Magnetometer

 | Published July 11, 2016  -  Deadline August 9, 2016
cpvs
38400000

Background information on Project This tender is to run on behalf of the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science/National Graphene Institute. Our tradition of excellence has been established by many eminent teachers and researchers, including 11 Nobel Prize winners, such as Rutherford, Bohr, Bragg, and Blackett. Our most recent Nobel laureates are Sir Andre Geim and Sir Kostya Novoselov, who were awarded the honour in 2010 for their pioneering work on graphene. From our discovery of the atomic nucleus by Ernest Rutherford when he was a professor here, to his first ‘artificial’ nuclear reaction which marked the beginning of nuclear physics, we are proud of our historical record of achievements in science and engineering. Today, we remain a leading centre of research across most areas of physics, and our steady influx of new research physicists and teachers means we continue to grow and keep our courses and research at the cutting edge. Project Overview The University wishes to purchase a fully automated dry SQUID based magnetometer for measuring magnetic properties of 2D materials based laminates, for studying magnetic and superconducting properties of two-dimensional materials and their laminates. The highly sensitive SQUID based magnetometer should be capable of performing magnetisation measurements at different temperature down to 1.8K for these studies.

Equipment for the Manchester Fuel Cell Innovation Centre

Manchester Metropolitan University | Published May 4, 2017  -  Deadline June 5, 2017
cpvs
31122100, 45214630, 33114000, 38510000, 38433100, 31711422, 31711421, 42991200

The focus of the MFCIC is advanced materials for fuel cells. The University requires a suite of modular low power fuel cells units (PEM, SOFC, etc.) which can be used to test our materials and to conduct condition-monitoring experiments. A suite of cells and associated hydrogen generation facilities will also be required. These units will also be used in our teaching/training activities. A wide range of liquid and gaseous fuels can be reformed into hydrogen.

Our activities in this field will include:

i) exploring metallic and organic/inorganic catalyst materials produced via wet-chemical synthesis

ii) bimetallic catalysts will also be explored where the active nanomaterial is immobilised onto ‘larger’ micro materials which, results in greater surface areas but keep costs low;

iii) exploring a range of mesoporous oxides as heterogeneous catalysts with varying compositions, surface structure and functionality towards clean-up efficiency

iv) coating of identified catalysts onto a range of materials such as planar and 3D microstructures. A catalytic testing rig is required to measure the efficiency/effectiveness of our materials.

UKSBSRE150427 - North West England Shallow Borehole Project

UK SHARED BUSINESS SERVICES LTD | Published August 26, 2015  -  Deadline September 11, 2015
Winner
J S Drilling Services Limited
cpvs

The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), through its centre/survey the British Geological Survey (BGS – known hereafter as “The Authority”), invites tenders for the provision of drilling services to support project monitoring and research activities. The purpose of the project is to improve the understanding of movement of fluids and possible chemical changes in aquifers and overlying strata. It is planned that the work shall be carried out at six sites in total to the south of Pickering, around Kirby Misperton, North Yorkshire. If the preferred sites are not accessible to The Authority, any alternative site shall be in the area of a radius of approximately 5 miles of the above. At the sites, a pair of boreholes shall be required to provide: a. Improved understanding of the superficial (‘Drift’) geology, b. Sample returns from the boreholes to be sub-sampled and processed, c. Pairs of completed boreholes to be used as monitoring boreholes for scientific purposes. It is planned to drill the pairs of boreholes from Ground Level (GL) to a Total Depth (TD) of approximately 40m and 20m adjacent to each other (within 5m, see Section 4 below and “Site Conditions”). On reaching TD the deeper boreholes may be geophysically logged, before being completed. Suitably specified permanent casing will be required in the upper section to prevent collapse and 100mm internal diameter plastic casing with a 2m slotted interval with suitably graded gravel packing in the lower part of the boreholes. Geophysical logging and any water sampling will be done by The Authority, using their own equipment.

Purchase of a Laser Ablation tool for Specimen Preparation

cpvs

Background information on Project:

The vision is firstly, to develop correlative tomography to radically increase the nature and level of information (morphological, structural and chemical) that can be obtained for a 3D volume of interest (VoI) deep within a material or component by coupling non-destructive (3D+time) X-ray tomography with destructive (3D) electron tomography and, secondly to exploit this new approach to shed light on damage accumulation processes arising under demanding conditions. Successful completion of this project will provide new 3D and 4D insights across many areas and yielding key experimental data for multi-scale models.

There has been an emphasis on bringing together 2D imaging techniques on the same surface, or near surface, region of interest. Coined correlative microscopy this approach is now routinely being applied in the life sciences, primarily to bring together light and electron microscopy.

Today there are many methods capable of providing 3D information, either non-destructively or destructively. Non-destructive methods tend to rely on penetrating beams such as X-rays, whereas destructive methods involve progressive material removal and can range from large scale mechanical serial sectioning down to the removal of atoms atom by atom, as in atom probe microscopy. Conventionally, information has been brought together from different samples at different scales statistically to build up a multi-scale picture (e.g. hierarchical pore structures).

Recently the proposer has linked together X-ray and election microscopies to obtain a multidimensional and multi-faceted 3D picture of a selected volume of interest. Calling this approach correlative tomography it promises to radically increase the level of information one can obtain about features of interest.

Precision milling by focused ion beam (FIB) milling has made it possible to excise a region tens of microns in size, identified by X-ray tomography, say for subsequent higher resolution imaging or tomography within the scanning electron microscope, or from serial section SEM tomography for higher resolution electron or atom probe tomography. However, FIB milling is limited to regions tens of microns in dimensions and tens of microns below the surface limiting both the volume that can be examined by electron optical methods and the depth from which it can be excavated. In this respect laser and plasma beam milling offer significant advantages in terms of milling rates and accessible depths and volumes of interest. The proposer's recent experiments suggest that new plasma beam-SEM instruments appear to be a particularly promising prospect opening up volumes of interest hundreds of microns in size for serial sectioning recovered from significant depths.

Project Overview:

This purpose of this grant is to advance the technique of correlative tomography (WPs 1 and 2) and to apply it to a range of exciting scientific problems (WPs 3-4) providing a joined up view of materials behaviour. To achieve this 2 objectives have been set:

Objective 1: Developing the correlative tomography technique.

WP1: To connect platforms across scales and modalities so as to track a VoI located deep below the surface across multiple instruments as well as to combining multiple techniques within a single platform.

WP2: To add new facets to correlative tomography:

— 3D chemical imaging;

— 3D crystal grain mapping the local stress distribution;

— Mechanical performance mapping at the VoI scale.

Objective 2: To apply correlative tomography to gain new insights into damage accumulation mechanisms.

WP3: To identify and track the mechanisms that control the progressive degradation over time and length scales for conventional bulk engineering materials operating under demanding conditions.

WP4: To study the failure behaviour of natural and man-made hierarchical/nano-structured materials.
