Abstract This proposal was stimulated from the need to develop rapid analysis methods to interrogate high-density material libraries of various compositions. Such combinatorial techniques, principally exploited by pharmaceutical industry, have recently been applied to functional inorganic materials. A key and often limiting feature of this approach is the requirement to be able to rapidly screen material libraries at high spatial resolution. Our intention is to develop novel approaches to high throughput analysis and, in the first instance, apply these to development of photovoltaic materials.We believe that this programme addresses many of the issues raised by the recent Royal Society of Chemistry review (commissioned by the EPSRC) Chemistry at the Centre : An International Assessment of University Research in Chemistry in the U.K. In particular this programme is collaboration between academics in chemistry and materials disciplines and the analytical techniques developed will be immediately applied in renewable energy chemistry.This proposal should be considered in the context of this review
