The Australian Centre for Electromaterials Science brings together eminent scientists to develop the nano-science and nano-technology related to the movement o electric charge within and between materials. Such processes are fundamentally important to a diverse array of phenomena important in many biological and industrial processes. The exciting new developments in nanoscale materials offer the potential for groundbreaking improvements charge generation and transfer. However, there is a general lack of understanding of these processes at the nano domain. The new Centre will study these processes, develop improved electromaterials and apply these materials in biomedicine, industrial processes, energy harvesting and energy storage.
