The Open Day, which is aimed mainly at those with a scientific background, will allow visitors to tour the ATI labs and listen to talks on research areas as diverse as cancer diagnostics, photonics and nanotechnology.

ATI at the University of Surrey celebrates 5th anniversary

UK | Posted on November 28th, 2007

The ATI was born out of the strong tradition of multidisciplinary research which pervades the University of Surrey and facilitates the application of high quality research to problems in the real world. Through bringing a core of outstanding research in different disciplines under one roof, the fusion of research in Electronic Engineering, Physics and the Biosciences has flourished at the ATI over the past five years.

ATI research broadly addresses the "grand challenges" such as renewable energy; healthcare; communications and the environment. Research activities are divided into four groups: Nanoelectronics, Photonics, Ion Beams, and Theory & Advanced Computation. Nanoscale science and quantum technology, advanced computer simulation, new technologies for cancer treatment and silicon photonics are just some of the cross-cutting research themes that unite these groups.

In its first five years the ATI has secured in excess of 30m of funding for research and infrastructure: 10m start-up costs for the ATI building and core research facilities, 4m to equip the new nanofabrication and supercomputing facilities and a new nanobiotechnology laboratory, and 17m of new grants. The ATI has published nearly 700 papers in refereed journals, generated 23 patents and four spin-out companies, and its staff and students have been honoured with international and national prizes, including the Queen's Anniversary Award and the Albert Einstein Silver Medal from UNESCO. The strong entrepreneurial culture and rigorous scientific discipline that underpins the ATI makes it a dynamic and exciting place for research and study.
