At the Australian Centre for Microscopy & Microanalysis (ACMM) about 50 academics, research fellows, students and visitors lead a diverse range of research projects ranging the biological and physical sciences to archaeological studies.
Examples of research programs within the centre include:
- Applying quantitative atom probe tomography to light alloys, allowing development of principles for alloy design at the atomic scale.
- Exploring biological systems by means of correlative imaging, thereby providing unprecedented insights into processes related to cancer.
- Applying analytical transmission electron tomography to explore the morphology and properties of nanoparticles and nanoporous materials for use in next-generation catalysts.
- Characterising nanostructured dilute magnetic semiconductors for design of new spintronic systems.
