The Australian Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology (AINST) is the University of Sydney's latest step in the creation of flexible, interdisciplinary institutes that are devoted to bringing the best people and infrastructure together in the support of frontier research.
The department carries out a significant research body in nanotechnology and nanosciences.
Extensive research into the design, growth and fabrication of semiconductor and optical devices on the nanometer scale using techniques ranging from MOCVD growth to ion beam processing. Such devices by virtue of their scale, exploit quantum effects to enhance their performance. A large part of this research program focuses on quantum well lasers and detectors of importance to the telecommunications industry. They also research the nanoscale modification of bulk materials such as nanocrystals within semiconductors induced by ion irradiation.
At the Australian National University (ANU), carbon nanotubes, Boron Nitride (BN) nanotubes, nanoparticles, nanowires and other nanomaterials have been produced by using a high-energy ball milling and annealing method, which was developed by the group in 1998.
Primary goal of the center is to transfer the technology of validated theory and computational tools from the academic-based Center to the practitioners' development environment which is nanotechnology-based industry.
This course teaches numerate graduates knowledge and skills in the field of nanotechnology and microfabrication. The course takes an immersive approach to learning both the principles and practices of nanotechnology and microfabrication with much of the material based around examples and practical exercises. Students completing this course will have a firm grasp of the current practices and directions in this exciting area and will have the knowledge and skills to enable them to design and build microscale devices.
