Getting the Drift - New Frontiers in Ion Spectroscopy
Grant number: DP110100312 | Funding period: 2011 - 2016
This project will develop and harness ultra-sensitive techniques to understand the action of photo-active molecules involved in human vision, molecular motors and molecular memory. The new techniques will also help explore and exploit the properties of carbon and silicon nanoparticles, and may assist detection of exotic molecules in space.
