Mr Salman Malik, Electronic & Electrical Engineering

Highly porous, highly spherical particles synthesized using electrospray technology having undergone Thermally Induced Phase Separation (TIPS). These biomaterial polymer particles are of interest in drug delivery systems and are capable of delivering antibiotics at a controlled slow release. Here, the particle has been sliced in half using a Focused Ion Beam (FIB).
