Z. Xiao Guo

Prof Guo’s research interest focuses on multiscale simulations and syntheses of materials and nanostructures for applications in clean energy and healthcare technologies, particularly in hydrogen storage, carbon capture, energy catalysis, biofuel cells and biointerfaces. Fundamental theories are coupled with ab initio, molecular dynamics, cellular automata and finite element simulations for materials discovery, while selected materials are synthesised and harnessed by mechanochemical, self-assembly, deposition and precipitation methods.


John Morton

Prof Morton's research takes spins of electrons and nuclei in a range of nano-scale materials and devices to develop a new generation of quantum technologies, including quantum sensors, quantum memories, and quantum computers. Prof Morton is the Director of the UCL Quantum Science and Technology Institute.
