The PicoFIB Network brings together international researchers with an interest in material manipulation and characterisation using novel gas-ion patterning and microscopy.

It provides a foundation for knowledge exchange, technical training and research development.

Outputs find application across the fields of nano-devices, energy technology and bio-materials.

The Programme runs from 2017 to 2020, comprising a series of exchange visits, training events and international workshops.
