Project Details

Project Description

A Squid magnetometer will be purchased for a magnetochemical laboratory at Monash University that has long
acted as an unofficial centre of excellence for molecular magnetism and serves many researchers whose
projects are supported by ARC grants. An existing instrument is now 20 years old and, while operative, needs to
be complemented, and ultimately replaced, by a new one that possesses the latest hardware and software. Ten
groups at Monash, Melbourne, Adelaide and Queensland universities need this instrument to produce magnetic
data and analyses for their many significant projects in the areas of inorganic materials chemistry,
nanochemistry and metallo-biology.
