Project Description

This project aims to establish a revolutionary transmission electron microscope facility to analyse materials
structure at the atomic level with unprecedented resolution in space, energy and time. From solar cells to catalysts to aerospace alloys to bio-sensors to quantum computers, the properties of materials are often governed by a
small number of atoms in critical locations. To understand and engineer matter at this atomic level requires tools
to characterise these critical atoms. This open access, national facility aims to provide Australian academic and
industrial researchers with a world-class capability at the absolute forefront of atomic scale materials
characterisation to solve research problems that cannot be solved any other way.
