Nanoscience and technology institute launching at University of Sydney
Cross-disciplinary institute and flagship $150m building cements Sydney’s place advancing frontier knowledge.
The Australian Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology, launching next month, provides a world-leading environment for scientists at the forefront of nanotechnology to address some of the biggest challenges facing society. A recent issue of the Sydney Morning Herald featured an insight into the university’s “quantum leap” into the next frontier.
The Australian Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology, which launches next month at the University of Sydney, brings together in a purpose-built facility the capacity to design, fabricate, measure, test and deploy nanotechnology innovations—in an Australian first.
The new $150m Sydney Nanoscience Hub—the headquarters of the Australian Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology—is among the most advanced laboratories for advanced measurement and experimental device demonstration globally built for this purpose and joins just a handful of facilities at some of the most prominent universities globally.
Available for public use will be a prototyping facility and cleanroom, which will be augmented by a bespoke electron microscope in one of the most electromagnetically and mechanically stable environments in the world.
The Australian Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology officially launches on April 20, 2016.
