Our novel surface engineering solutions are improving product quality and longevity to make a lasting difference in the real world.
Millions of patients receive a medical implant every year and improving the quality and longevity of an implant has a significant effect on the quality of human life.
The safety and reliability of improved quality coatings to reduce friction and wear of components, for a range of industrial sectors, undoubtedly have an economic and environmental impact on our society; for example, the cost savings of reducing friction and wear can amount to 1.3 to 1.6% of the Gross National Product.
These novel surface engineering solutions have led to European and US patents owned by Taragenyx, a company registered in Scotland.
In addition, another patent is being considered by ARAMCO in the field of surface engineering for off-shore and on-shore industry. These coatings when used in Solid Oxide Fuel Cells are also a good candidate for environmental friendly solutions reducing CO2 footprint.
Dr Rehan Ahmed's research is making an impact in the medical and engineering sectors through novel surface engineering solutions to improve product quality and longevity, to make a lasting difference in the real world.
