Instrumentation

Life Science & Soft Matter Facility (AIBN)

The CMM facilities are located on the ground floor of the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology building. These purpose built laboratories house four state of the art transmission electron microscopes and two scanning electron microscopes plus a range of sample preparation facilities. In addition the laboratory is equipped with a sophisticated optical microscopy suite with three optical microscopes in various configurations.  Contact details.

Material Science - Scanning Electron Microscopy & Mass Spectrometry Facility (Hawken)

The Hawken laboratory is the scanning electron microscopy and mass spectrometry laboratory of the CMM. There are a series of scanning electron microscopes that can examine a very broad range of sample types.  Many of these instruments are capable of microanalysis using a wide variety of techniques. The laboratory houses a microprobe instrument that provides quantitative elemental analysis from polished specimens.  Contact details.

A range of mass spectrometry instrumentation is also available. The Mass Spectrometry component is being led by Dr Brett Hamilton Contact details.
