Pigram - Interactions at surfaces
Dr Paul Pigram
Associate Professor, College of Science, Health and Engineering
Our research focuses on creating, understanding and controlling materials at the nanometer scale. We have a strong focus on surface science, in particular, exploring chemical and molecular properties and processes at surfaces and at interfaces.
Our group's research interests include:
- understanding molecular interactions at surfaces,
- bio-surface characterisation,
- nano-particle drug delivery and
- the surface science of minerals, glasses and other industrially relevant systems.
Our group works with around 25 universities, 5 government laboratories and 50 companies in Australia and abroad. His group hosts a comprehensive surface science capability including XPS, ToF-SIMS, SPM, AES/SAM and contact angle analysis, supported by a state-of-the art visualisation and instrument remote access facility.
