Nanotechnology Research Programs/Activities:

The Materials Characterisation and Fabrication Platform (MCFP) supports materials science and engineering research through advanced instrumentation, analysis and characterisation. The platform facilitates access to a range of complementary technologies, focusing on atomic force microscopy, super-resolution microscopy, mass cytometry, nanofabrication, X-ray diffraction and Helium Ion Microscopy. The MCFP welcomes all users across the scientific community, from universities and research institutes to industry.

 

Scale of Nanotechnology Research Effort:

7 staff members support more than 30 materials characterisation and fabrication instruments and more than 200 researchers pa. MCFP staff provide assistance with instrument training, technical support, as well as collaborate with project and experiment design

 

Nanotechnology research facilities:

The MCFP houses a wide range of materials characterisation equipment including: Atomic force microscopy, atomic force microscopy, super-resolution microscopy, mass cytometry, X-ray diffraction, confocal and optical microscopy, flow cytometry, x-ray fluorescence, FTIR and Helium Ion Microscopy.
