Progress on joint project with Monash University to construct noble-gas polarisers for MRI imaging. In December 2016, we succeeded in the domestic production of noble-gas-polarising cells called “optical pumping cells”. This is a capability that has not previously been available in Australia.
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.
Our 19th proposal round closed last night, with 218 proposals across 14 cold- and thermal-neutron instruments, and 35 proposals for Chemical- and Bio-Deuteration at the National Deuteration Facility. Excluding existing approved programs and the mail-in system on ECHIDNA, 1214 beam days have been requested.
In a recent publication in the open access journal Scientific Reports, researchers from the University of New South Wales use the SANS instrument QUOKKA to understand the assembly of two diphenylalanine-peptide-based hydrogels into structures, turning their attention to both the process of assembly and the structure of the final gel.
On Tuesday 7th March at the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin fur Materialien und Energies (HZB) BESSY II site in Berlin, HZB and ANSTO held a joint workshop on "Perspectives for energy and materials science research within large scale facilities".
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 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.
