Project Description

This proposal seeks to establish a state-of-the art facility unique in Australia capable of characterisation of Soft
matter and responsive materials. This will enhance and establish new collaborative research efforts with leading
researchers at UniMelb, Monash, Newcastle and Swinburne. This facility will allow for measurements over
multiple length scales from the molecular to the macroscopic required for ongoing research in emulsions and foams, aerosols, controlled release systems, delivery and of pharmaceutical particulates and living cellular
systems. A fundamental understanding of these materials will provide the enabling science for the development
of advanced materials in both established and emerging Australian industries.
