Prof Philip Moriarty awarded EPSRC Established Career Fellowship

Prof. Philip Moriarty has been awarded an EPSRC Established Career Fellowship (£2.2M, 2020-25). His project integrates artificial intelligence, nanoscience, and surface science to take the pain out of scanning probe microscopy (SPM). It  will develop a machine learning framework that, in essence, "auto focuses" a probe microscope and then takes SPM to the point where it can learn how to build magnetic nanostructures atom-by-atom and spin-by-spin. This AI-enabled probe microscope will then be used to carry out a programme of exceptionally challenging experiments whose common theme is the control of magnetism at the most fundamental levels: single domains, single molecules, single atoms, and single spins.
