TSB funds Surrey University/ Torr Scientific KTP

The Technology Strategy Board (TSB) has agreed to support a two-year Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) between Surrey University and Torr Scientific, a manufacturer of X-ray and vacuum components used in XPS systems.

The funding will be used to employ a KTP associate to develop and optimise the use of a novel X-ray monochromator based on Torr Scientific’s diamond anode technology.

The KTP, which aims to help businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity through better use of the knowledge, technology and skills that reside within the UK knowledge base, is funded by the TSB, along with other government research and development agencies.

The total value of the project is £136,000.
