ANSTO has contributed to research that indicated agriculture affects the organic carbon storage in subsoil up to one metre and challenged the concept that subsoil is a stable repository of organic carbon.
Prof Tamara Davis, an astrophysicist at the University of Queensland who is searching for the elusive ‘dark energy”’ that is accelerating the universe, will deliver a Distinguished Lecture on the most exciting developments in modern astrophysics and discuss her work with the Dark Energy Survey on 12 April at ANSTO.
Head of the Cultural Heritage project Floriana Salvemini shared highlights from the time she spent studying for her PhD in a profile for Postgraduate Futures.
An international research collaboration led by scientists at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has explained a long-standing thermodynamic inconsistency in the formation of a class of metallic glass that may lead to the development of new, better metallic alloys.
Nuclear techniques have been used to validate the structure of a new hydrogel, developed by a group of Japanese researchers, with potential to treat various eye disorders.
ANSTO environmental researchers and Centre for Accelerator Science staff contributed to the Australia State of the Environment (SoE) 2016 report that was released this month and welcomed its publication.
ANSTO has contributed to experiments using multiple techniques, which have determined, for the first time, the location of interstitial oxygen atoms in a new apatite-type solid electrolyte.
The Australian Institute of Nuclear Science, Technology & Engineering (AINSE) and ANSTO have signed an MOU with the Embassy of France in Australia that will facilitate and enhance bilateral collaborative research in science and technology between Australia and France.
Measurements on the Pelican time-of-flight spectrometer have contributed to a better understanding of the molecular geometry and magnetic properties of a prospective material for quantum computing.
ANSTO has participated in collaborative research investigating microstructure and the superconducting properties of a material made with isotopically pure boron for use in the magnetic coils of nuclear fusion reactors, such as the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER).
