Posted on 13 November 2015

Keele University and Keeling & Walker Ltd, a Stoke-based world leader in tin oxide materials, have been awarded a two year Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project.

Under the leadership of Dr Richard Darton and with the support of Dr Richard Jones and Dr John Staniforth, all from the School of Physical and Geographical Sciences, the project aims to develop high performance alternatives to Antimony doped Tin Oxides (ATO) to bring Keeling & Walker into the market leading position in Europe for inorganic infrared absorbing materials.

Keele has extensive and internationally recognised expertise in the synthesis, structural characterisation and testing of inorganic materials and this will be made available to Keeling & Walker, through the KTP associate, to ensure both a successful project outcome and the transfer of skills and knowledge.

The proposed project with Keeling & Walker will introduce a new class of materials and properties / applications to Keele researchers and with these the potential for new future research projects.
