A spokesperson from ANSTO has provided a statement
Experiments at ANSTO have helped increase an understanding some of the viscoelastic properties of polymers.
ANSTO has have contributed to research involving doping transition metals in a polymorph of bismuth oxide in a search for more structural stability.
Technetium-99m (Tc-99m) is used in hospitals around the world to diagnose a variety of heart, lung and musculoskeletal conditions, as well as cancers. It is the most common nuclear medicine, with global demand estimated to be up to 40 million doses a year, produced by experts with a small network of 11* nuclear reactors worldwide.
An ANSTO health researcher has received a number of awards for her contribution to the development of a new hybrid technique that enhances the effectiveness of an advanced form of radiation therapy for cancer.
By carrying out micro-mechanical testing on single crystals of nickel, ANSTO materials researchers were able to derive the bulk properties of a polycrystalline material in a way that is useful for engineering.
Prof Andy Gleadow is confident that a multi-disciplinary approach using a combination of dating technologies and analysis of very large data sets will change our understanding of Australian Aboriginal rock art found in shelters and its relationship to an evolving landscape.
Analysis of the cosmogenic nuclide beryllium -10 produced in bedrock and river sediment samples has contributed to an understanding of how the vertical sandstone pillars of Zhangjiajie China have evolved through time and when they were formed.
Progress in establishing timelines and pace of landscape change in the Kimberley region will be explored by Prof Andy Gleadow from the University of Melbourne, who leads a joint ARC and Foundation of Australia funded grant, in a Distinguished Lecture at ANSTO on Tuesday 5 June 2018.
Researchers from the Future Industries Institute at the University of South Australia are collaborating with a group of scientists at ANSTO to investigate a new class of micro and nano-scale zinc fertilisers for broadacre crops, such as wheat.
