Nanostructure Deposition Facility

Funding: 2006: $180,240

Project Member(s): Ford, M.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Linkage Infrastructure)

Start year: 2006

Summary: Nanotechnology is one of the most rapidly developing research areas in Australia and yet facilities for nanofabrication are extremely limited. The Nanostructure Deposition Facility (NDF) is a unique facility, providing access to the highly specialised deposition equipment required to fabricate nanostructured surfaces from a variety of materials. These surfaces are in high demand by researchers from a range of disciplines who wish to exploit their unique material and electronic properties for a variety of applications. The NDF represents a major new joint venture between seven Australian institutions supporting research in areas such as organic electronics, atom optics, biotechnology and nanotechnology.

FOR Codes: Condensed Matter Physics-Electronic and Magnetic Properties; Superconductivity, Condensed Matter Physics-Structural Properties, Colloid and Surface Chemistry, Polymeric materials (e.g. paints), Integrated circuits and devices, Surfaces and Structural Properties of Condensed Matter, Electronic and Magnetic Properties of Condensed Matter; Superconductivity
