The current research focus is the synthesis and characterisation of nanomaterials in the three key areas of energy, environment and health.
This research theme draws together expertise in synthesis (including self-assembly), characterisation (including spectroscopy, colloid and surface science) and computational modelling, and applications (optoelectronics, clean energy generation and storage, separation technologies, biomaterials, nanomedicine and molecular recognition) of organic, inorganic and composite materials, from small molecules to macromolecular structures including polymers, dendrimers, frameworks, gels and nano-porous structures.
The Future Industries Institute (FII) was established in 2015 bringing together the research activities of the established Ian Wark Research Institute (IWRI), Mawson Institute (MI) and Centre for Environmental Risk Assessment and Remediation (CERAR). The FII focuses on four research strands: Minerals and Resources Engineering; Energy and Advanced Manufacturing; Environmental Science and Engineering; Bioengineering and Nanomedicine.
Sydney Nano 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 university's Institute for Nanoscale Technology has two major research programs, applying Nanotechnology to the areas of Biomedical Nano-materials and Devices and to Energy Efficient Nano-materials and Devices.
The group's research enables nanodevices and integrated systems with ultralow energy consumption, minimising all the parasitic energy (electrical, thermal, mechanical) losses which make devices power-hungry and less performant. Low energy consumption needs to be complemented with efficient energy storage and an appropriate system design. Nanomaterials like graphene and novel 2D materials are key enablers.
This program investigates the basic theory and applications of nanotechnology in the biological and chemical sciences, in physics and in engineering science. One of these four streams is completed at Levels 2 and 3, with a major project unit in nanotechnology at Level 3.
Nanotechnology needs to be based on a holistic approach in which design embracing environmental issues, including toxicity, are factored in, and this is an integral part of the Centre's activities. The integrated core activities of the Centre cover nano-particles, nano-devices and nano-surfaces (based on biology and 'soft chemistry').
Medical Nanotechnology is the application of the methods and techniques of Nanotechnology to medical and health areas. The student may also choose to specialise in Nanophysics or Nanochemistry opening up alternative career paths in industry (biotechnology, pharmaceutical, health, defence, chemical, petroleum, materials and engineering).
This research theme encompasses applications to nanotechnology with particular emphasis on medical nanotechnology, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for characterising molecular dynamics.
