ULTRATEM: TO RESOLVE THE STRUCTURE OF MATTER IN SPACE, ENERGY AND TIME

Grant number: LE170100118 | Funding period: 2017 - 2017

Completed

Abstract

This project aims to establish a transmission electron microscope facility to analyse materials structure at the atomic level. A small number of atoms in critical locations governs the properties of materials from solar cells and catalysts to aerospace alloys, bio-sensors and quantum computers. To understand and engineer matter at this atomic level, tools are needed to characterise these critical atoms. This open access, national facility will be able to characterise matter at the atomic-level. Expected outcomes include better understanding of the natural world and advanced materials to solve problems in energy, technology, health, environment, communications, advanced manufacturing, transpo..
