World-leading green energy research
ARC Laureate Fellow and physicist Professor Dmitri Golberg and his team are investigating new materials and their structural and green-energy applications using in situ transmission electron microscopy. The new materials could be used for improved solar cells, touch panels, batteries, field-effect transistors, light sensors and displays.
Nanoscience reveals and explains the novel and complex behaviour of matter on the scale of nanometres.
We collaborate on projects across chemistry, physics, materials science, surface science, optics and nanomechanics, with the goal of creating a detailed understanding of how to control the structure of nanomaterials.
Our ultimate aim is to develop and advance functionalities that enable emerging technologies and address challenges faced by society.
Our Nanotechnology minor is designed for physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering and process engineering students with an interest in nanoscience and its applications in nanotechnology.
You will gain knowledge and skills commonly needed in nanotechnology research which can help you pursue a career in:
- academic and industrial research
- experimental apparatus designer
- laboratory assistant
- sales of scientific equipment.
Our discipline brings together a diverse team of experts who deliver world-class education and achieve breakthroughs in research.
