16 Tesla Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS)
Funding: 2006: $400,000
Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Linkage Infrastructure)
Start year: 2007
Summary: Success of this proposal will enhance national and international collaboration through access to the proposed 16 Tesla PPMS by a large number of collaborating groups. This state the art facility will substantially enhance the materials characterisation capability of Australia. Equipped with this 16 Tesla PPMS and other related facilities the Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials at the University of Wollongong will continue as an important national and international centre for physical property characterisation. It will allow Australian researchers to remain competitive in this important of materials research.
