Liam Critchley is a writer, journalist and communicator who specializes in chemistry and nanotechnology and how fundamental principles at the molecular level can be applied to many different application areas. Liam is perhaps best known for his informative approach and explaining complex scientific topics to both scientists and non-scientists. Liam has over 350 articles published across various scientific areas and industries that crossover with both chemistry and nanotechnology.

Liam is Senior Science Communications Officer at the Nanotechnology Industries Association (NIA) in Europe and has spent the past few years writing for companies, associations and media websites around the globe. Before becoming a writer, Liam completed master’s degrees in chemistry with nanotechnology and chemical engineering.

Aside from writing, Liam is also an advisory board member for the National Graphene Association (NGA) in the U.S., the global organization Nanotechnology World Network (NWN), and a Board of Trustees member for GlamSci–A UK-based science Charity. Liam is also a member of the British Society for Nanomedicine (BSNM) and the International Association of Advanced Materials (IAAM), as well as a peer-reviewer for multiple academic journals.


Using 2D Materials in Photo-Harvesting Applications Liam Critchley
As society looks toward more ways of harvesting our natural environment, 2D materials offer a way to efficiently harvest solar rays into a usable output. 2D materials use light to create energy via advanced solar cells, producing hydrogen fuel and facilitating advanced cancer treatments.

Using 2D Materials to Create Water Energy-Harvesting Devices Liam Critchley
Designers can use 2D materials to develop different water-harvesting applications beyond the mainstream tidal and hydroelectric power harvesting process. These include harvesting energy from salinity gradients where water bodies meet and harvesting energy from rainfall and other water motions.

2D Materials in Piezoelectric Nanogenerators (PENGs) Liam Critchley
The piezoelectric effect is not only a common phenomenon in bulk inorganic materials; it is also observed in select 2D materials. This blog explores how designers can use 2D materials capable of generating a piezoelectric charge in a range of nanogenerators (PENGs) for powering small-scale devices.

2D Materials in Triboelectric Nanogenerators (TENGs) Liam Critchley
The inherent thinness, active surface, and mechanical properties of 2D materials have the potential to create more efficient and longer-lasting TENG devices for powering small-scale electronics.

Could AI Help to Create Safer Nanomaterials? Liam Critchley
Stringent safety protocols are in place to ensure that nanomaterials are safe before being used in real-world products. AI has the potential to characterize the toxicity profile of nanomaterials better as well as provide a safer manufacturing environment for their production and integration.

The Potential for Nanotechnology in the Aerospace Industry Liam Critchley
Innovation is always occurring in the aerospace industry. There is a constant drive to create lighter, more fuel-efficient, and safer aircraft. Even though many advanced materials are already used in modern-day aircraft, the beneficial properties of nanomaterials could improve them further.

Machine Learning Could Help Cancer Diagnosis in the Future Liam Critchley
Many of the current cancer diagnosis methods are prone to human error. Introducing machine learning to the detection and diagnosis process could yield more accurate results.

How AI Can be Used to Develop Nanomedicines Liam Critchley
Computational methods have been used in pharmaceutical development for many years. AI algorithms are now offering a new way for the pharmaceutical sector to design, synthesize, scale up, and safety-check different nanomedicines.

Nanotechnology’s Impact on Optic and Photonic Technologies Liam Critchley
The need for perfectly crafted optical components has meant that it is harder for some optical technologies to be improved compared to other technologies. The ability of nanomaterials to reflect, absorb, and manipulate light has produced more advanced optical and photonic technologies.

Where Nanotechnology and Machine Learning Meet Liam Critchley
The fields of nanotechnology and machine learning are impressive in their own rights and will continue to grow into staple technologies of the future. Although both are still relatively new fields, they can be combined in certain scenarios to produce practical solutions to various problems.
