Welcome to the Radacsi Research group!

The website has been moved to: https://www.radacsigroup.co.uk

We are a new, hands-on research group focusing on nano science. We design and build new and improved research tools for specific scientific purposes, which give us a competitive edge over commercial instruments broadly available. Our group’s expertise lies in nanotechnology, producing nanofibers and nanoparticles for energy, biology, defense, pharmaceutical or many other applications.
