Max Hutchins joined the Composites and Coatings Group in Spring 2015. He has a BSc in Physics with Astrophysics from the University of Leicester, and is studying for an MPhil. His project, in collaboration with atg UV Technology and Keronite International Ltd, aims to develop and optimise the photocatalytic properties of PEO-grown titanium dioxide on a titanium substrate for use as a photocatalyst under UV light. It will explore methods of improving the photocatalytic performance of the coating for certain wavelengths, and adapting the substrate geometry and set-up configuration for maximum efficiency.
