Fellowship Project Summary
FL220100202 – “New ways to see” - Reimagining Electron Microscopy
Electron microscopes can see features as small as an atom. They are used across Australia in universities, industry and hospitals to image small things, from the coronavirus to a computer chip to a solar cell, so we can understand how they work. This project aims to develop a new electron microscope capability that can achieve an entirely new level of sensitivity and thereby detect features that currently cannot be seen. This will provide scientists, engineers and industry with a new tool for investigating the natural world and for engineering new functional materials and devices. The new electron microscopy methods developed in the project will enable the precise design of materials and devices in areas as diverse as computing, energy storage and production, communications, drug delivery and lighting and will underpin advanced manufacturing industries. Through ongoing collaboration with industry, this project will also deliver a new analytical capability and intellectual property that could be commercialised and deployed worldwide.
