This four year program combines majors in nanotechnology and either physics or chemistry and encompasses physical, chemical, biological and engineering nanoscience and nanotechnology. This double degree provides a strong grounding in nanotechnology, the science and engineering of materials less than a micrometer in size across the disciplines of physics and chemistry with substantial biology and engineering components.
The Centre for Advanced Materials and Industrial Chemistry (CAMIC) is a multidisciplinary centre that strives to undertake high quality fundamental and applied research. The interconnected research themes in the centre allow materials scientists, nanotechnologists and applied scientists with industrial experience to undertake ambitious research projects from conception to real world implementation.
The Centre for Advanced Nanomaterials undertakes groundbreaking trans-disciplinary research at the forefront of materials science. The Centre provides an environment to foster, connect and harness research activities centred on the synthesis, processing and study of nanomaterials at the University of Adelaide
IPAS has been created to bring together experimental physicists, chemists, material scientists, biologists, experimentally driven theoretical scientists and medical researchers to create new sensing and measurement technologies.
The group's primary interest is the mathematical modelling of fundamental physical properties exhibited by nanoparticles and nanoparticle composite materials. In particular, they are interested in the thermal, electrical, magnetic, optical and mechanical characteristics of nanoparticles and their composites.
