The mining industry is set to benefit from a new Australian capability that uses a nuclear scanning technique to detect the presence of precious metals and strategic minerals in a core sample.
In an effort to understand why the Tongan Hunga volcano eruption was so explosive, internationally-recognised volcanologist Prof. Shane Cronin of the University of Auckland and associates rely on beamlines at the Australian Synchrotron to support comprehensive research on the Hunga event.
Ultra-flexible electronics has many potential applications within areas such as for example the military, healthcare and energy.
International palaeontologists have used advanced imaging techniques at ANSTO’S Australian Synchrotron to clarify the role that the earliest fruit-eating birds of the Cretaceous period may have had in helping fruit-producing plants to evolve.

Congress marks watershed moment for nuclear medicine and ANSTO
Progress on a more environmentally-friendly production method for hydrogen peroxide.
Researchers from ANSTO and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory have uncovered the likely mineral composition of Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, revealing a world of exotic organic crystals unlike any found on Earth.
Publications and resources from the Powder Diffraction beamline.
Archive of ANSTO research publications, seminars and short talks.
With enhanced submicron spatial resolution, speed and contrast, the Micro-Computed Tomography beamline opens a window on the micron-scale 3D structure of a wide range of samples relevant to many areas of science including life sciences, materials engineering, anthropology, palaeontology and geology. MCT will be able to undertake high-speed and high-throughput studies, as well as provide a range of phase-contrast imaging modalities.
The Advanced Diffraction and Scattering beamlines (ADS-1 and ADS-2) are two independently operating, experimentally flexible beamlines that will use high-energy X-ray diffraction and imaging to characterise the structures of new materials and minerals.
