Nanomaterials Optical Characterisation Facility

Grant number: LE0775612

Abstract

Nanotechnology is expected to revolutionize a wide variety of fields, from medicine to agriculture, communications and electronics. However, the small length scales involved present significant challenges with regard to characterising the nanomaterials produced. The Nanomaterials Optical Characterisation facility will provide state-of-the-art equipment for examining the properties of nanomaterials. The equipment will be pivotal in assisting the development of next-generation medicines, implants, optical devices and surface coatings, further strengthening Australia's formidable reputation in these areas.
