High Temperature Atomic Structure and Physical Property Characterization Facility (LE160100054 via UNSW)

Project Member(s): Phillips, M., Wang, G.

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

Start year: 2016

Summary: The aim of this application is to strengthen Australian research activities in the development of advanced materials for novel multifunctional devices, sensors, catalysts, engineering components and energy technologies through the purchase of a state-of-the-art high temperature atomic structure and physical property analysis facility. The facility will consist of a High Temperature Scanning Tunnelling Microscope and a High Temperature AC Field Hall Effect Measurement System to provide a unique research capability in in-situ analysis of atomic/electronic behaviours with the correlated physical properties including carrier concentration and mobility at temperatures exceeding 1300 K. Impact Statement Clustering the High Temperature Scanning Tunnelling Microscope and the High Temperature AC Field Hall Effect Measurement System to form a powerful and versatile high temperature atomic structure and physical property analysis facility will substantially extend research capabilities in Australia and boost our research activities in the development of advanced functional materials, energy technologies and engineering components.
