This is the website of the NanoScience Laboratory at the University of Melbourne. Our laboratory is dedicated to research into the physics and chemistry of nanoscale systems. We also do small scale materials development for commercial customers. Our work is funded primarily by the Australian Research Council through the Laureate Fellowship and Discovery Grants Programs. We also receive support from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Go8-DAAD, US AOARD program, VLSCI Supercomputing, IBM (Melbourne) and CSIRO.
Current funding focusses on nanoscale catalysis, AFM, self-assembly, single quantum dot spectroscopy and plasmonics. Our research group currently has some 20 members, including 5 postdoctoral research fellows and 13 PhD students. Our group currently has members from 10 countries including China, India, Germany, Italy, Lebanon, NZ, Netherlands, US, France and Australia.
Some of our research will be presented at the ACS Dallas, NaNax6 (Austria), ICONN2014 (Adelaide) and the MRS (Boston) 2014 conferences. We hope to see you there.
