Advanced instrumentation for nano-scale imaging and analysis

Funding: 2002: $500,000

Project Member(s): Phillips, M., Moon, A.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Linkage Infrastructure)
University of Sydney (The University of Sydney)

Start year: 2002

Summary: It is widely accepted that the emerging fields of Nanotechnology and Nanoengineering will dominate research activity in a wide range of disciplines over the next decade. Progress in nanoscience and technology requires parallel development in nanocharacterisation and nanofabrication techniques. This proposal seeks to enhance the level of research infrastructure support for nano-scale microscopy and microanalysis at UTS and the University of Sydney by providing the following advanced instrumentation for nano-scale imaging, analysis and manipulation of materials: - A Schottky field emission gun environmental scanning electron microscope - Equipment kit for the rapid preparation of high quality transmission electron microscope specimens.
