Nanoscience

Our nanoscience researchers characterise molecular structure and function, and identify and quantitate key chemical and biochemical species in the environment and the human body.

Using super-resolution and electron microscopy, condensed matter physics and infrared spectroscopy, they study molecular processes to create new medical diagnostics, environmental sensors and techniques to image molecules in real time.

Research focus

To characterise the molecular structure and function of materials, proteins and condensed matter.

To develop methods for identifying and quantifying chemical and biochemical species in environmental or biological specimens for research or diagnostic purposes.

To understand the composition and molecular properties of materials at the nanometer scale.
