The Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis (CMM) is an interdisciplinary research, teaching and service centre. We play an integral role within the research programs of The University of Queensland and participate in both undergraduate and postgraduate education. We provide a comprehensive suite of analytical instrumentation and a high standard of training programs for university researchers. Our highly experienced, specialist staff are committed to providing a supportive and resourceful working environment where clients receive expert advice and training that equips them to achieve their research goals.
The CMM is a foundation member and the Queensland Node of the Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Research Facility (AMMRF) which was established in July 2007 under the Commonwealth Government’s National Collaborative Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS).
CMM actively supports and initiates microscopy & microanalysis related research and development projects with the aim to maintain future technological competitiveness for UQ. CMM is also in charge of the renewal of instruments to ensure the optimal balance in instruments dedicated to general education, service and research and to further push research projects beyond the current frontiers.
Our service to the university community is provided in three key areas, namely a comprehensive suite of analytical instrumentation, strongly motivated and experienced personnel and high standard of training programs for university researchers.
The Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis is a major university resource for students, research and teaching staff. Our highly experienced, specialist staff are committed to providing a supportive and resourceful working environment where clients receive expert advice and comprehensive training that equips them to achieve their research goals.
The Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis is a research facility dedicated to an understanding of the structure and composition of all natural and man-made materials across different scales.
Our challenge is to meet present needs of researchers for microstructural characterisation and to equip The University of Queensland to meet new horizons in analysis research.
