Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

    To rapidly prototype novel mm-wave and THz sources there is a requirement to create intricate structures to produce and radiate electromagnetic fields. The motivation for this work is to create improved electron-beam-driven, vacuum electronic mm-wave and sub-THz sources by exploiting dispersion engineering. Although such structures can be manufactured by other techniques, additive manufacturing has proven to be quick, reliable and cost-effective. This research is allowing the prototyping of novel mm-wave and sub-THz coherent sources.
