Our facilities

We bring together cutting-edge instrumentation in mass spectrometry, atomic resolution transmission electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy.

Along with world-class technical expertise, our purpose-built facilities enable an efficient research space for novel material discoveries. Our laboratory spaces will provide critical research visibility for QUT on a national and global scale while nurturing emerging collaborative research.

State-of-the-art instrumentation currently under construction includes:

  • Double-aberration-correction high resolution transmission electron microscope (JEOL NEOARM)
  • Focused ion beam microscope (FIB)
  • Time-of-flight mass spectrometer (ToF-SIMS).

Our expert research team also take advantage of expert scientists and infrastructure at other QUT research institutes and locations, including:

Our scholarships

We're offering PhD and Masters top-up scholarships in QUT’s Annual scholarship round.

Researching with us will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • work with a team of leading researchers
  • undertake your own innovative research in and across the fields of materials sciences
  • gain an internationally-recognised postgraduate qualification.
