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.


Why Nanowires Could Be a Big Thing for Electronics Liam Critchley
Nanowires are 1D nanomaterials with efficient electron transport properties where the electrons flow along the long axis of the wire. The electronic conductivity properties, which are realized through quantum effects, could be useful for a range of innovative electronics.

The Chemistry Behind Fuel Cells Liam Critchley
The advancement of technology has led to the development of new forms of energy storage options. Energy storage devices such as rechargeable batteries continue to dominate the market, but fuel cells are on the rise. Learn how recent advances in fuel cells have made them more attractive.

Nanotechnology's Impact on Energy Storage Devices Liam Critchley
As society looks for ways of creating more efficient and smaller energy storage devices for various technologies, manufacturers are looking at alternatives to the status quo. Nanomaterials offer a promising option to improve energy storage devices' overall performance and size.

Types of Medical Devices Well-Suited for 3D Printing Liam Critchley
3D printing is a versatile technique impacting many industry sectors due to its customizability, speed, and ability to create highly complex parts. In this blog, we discuss the types of medical devices well-suited for 3D printing.

Selecting a 3D Medical Printing Method Liam Critchley
3D printing is a versatile technique impacting many industries due to its customizability, speed, and ability to create highly complex parts. Medical professionals can now select from several 3D printing methods capable of creating polymer, ceramic, and metal medical devices tailored to a patient’s specific needs.

Using 3D Nanoscale Printing Liam Critchley
3D printing, otherwise known as additive manufacturing, has grown over the years to become a beneficial and versatile manufacturing tool. While many 3D printing methods produce bulk objects, it is now possible to 3D print nanoscale structures through two-photon lithography.

The Chemistry of Metal-Ion Batteries Liam Critchley
Li-ion batteries have become a staple component of modern technologies. Li-ion batteries are part of the metal-ion batteries classification. Metal-ion batteries are comprised of many different batteries, varying by chemical make-up and the electrochemical reactions performed within the battery.

Conformal Coatings in Electronic Devices Liam Critchley
Electronic components need to be protected. Many components have small or complex parts that cannot be coated and protected by conventional means. Here, we discuss different polymer-based materials that can conform to a surface and protect electronic components from multiple stimuli.

The Chemistry Behind Thin Film Solar Cells Liam Critchley
The distinct types of thin film solar cells have different working principles based on their fundamental chemistry. All thin film solar cells work differently from conventional inorganic solar cells, and even though their efficiencies are not as high, they have other benefits.

The Chemistry Behind Inorganic Solar Cells Liam Critchley
Inorganic solar cells are the most common and efficient solar cells and rely on many different aspects of chemistry to function. Without chemistry, it would not be possible to create the internal current generation mechanisms that enable solar cells to harness sunlight, and here we explain how.
