We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.



Housed at our Daresbury Laboratory SuperSTEM is the EPSRC National Facility for Aberration-Corrected Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy. It supports a wide variety of multi-disciplinary research by providing access to cutting-edge instrumentation, state-of-the-art data analysis as well as expertise and training in electron microscopy.

Access to SuperSTEM is open to UK academics and their collaborators within the world-wide scientific community. Commercial and proprietary research access is welcome, subject to funding.

SuperSTEM is administered by an academic consortium, led by the University of Leeds and joined by the Universities of Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester and Oxford. The principal location of the facility is a purpose-built low-vibration laboratory on the Sci-Tech Campus, with access when required to complementary instrumentation at the consortium or partner universities for specific applications.

For full details on access and use, see the SuperSTEM website.
