ACES, through our network of collaborating and partner organisations, has access to world-class facilities and capabilities that can help advance research, end-user and industry objectives.
University of Wollongong
ACES at the University of Wollongong node is housed in the Australian Institute for Innovative Materials, a purpose-built $52 Million facility designed to transform multifunctional materials research into a commercial reality.
The Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) Materials Node is based alongside ACES at UOW and brings together specific strengths in the fabrication of both hard and soft materials, particularly nano-organic and inorganic electronic materials.
ACES at Deakin University operates from the Institute of Frontier Materials, which houses specialised laboratories and state-of-the-art equipment for composites, polymers, textiles and biomedical research.
Deakin also provides us with access to its Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Facility to characterise molecules and materials for micro surface imaging and solution testing.
ACES at Monash University operates from the School of Chemistry which contains fully equipped research laboratories and extensive analytical infrastructure including Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, X-ray Crystallography, Chromatography, Mass Spectrometry and Raman and FTIR Spectroscopy Laboratories serviced by full time technicians.
Monash also provides access to:
- The Green Chemical Futures Building featuring purpose-built high-tech laboratories to develop next generation sustainable chemistries;
- Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy providing advanced instrumentation, expertise and training in electron microscopy and atom probe microscopy;
- The Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication (part of the Australian National Fabrication Facility), which provides an extensive array of micro/nano fabrication and characterisation equipment.
University of Tasmania
The University of Tasmania node deals with Electrofluidics and Diagnostics and Ethics, Policy and Public Engagement.
Australian National University
ACES at the Australian National University provides access to the high performance supercomputing facilities available at the National Computational Infrastructure Facility.
These facilities allow the development of complex molecular modelling for our key research themes.
The University of Melbourne
ACES at the University of Melbourne operates from its Department of Medicine (St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne) which houses a bio additive fabrication research facility.
Swinburne University of Technology
ACES at Swinburne operates from the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology which contains fully equipped research laboratories and extensive analytical infrastructure including:
- Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy
- Fully equipped medical physics laboratories
- Raman and FTIR Spectroscopy Laboratories
University of Warwick
ACES at the Friedrich-Alexander University is housed within the Department of Chemistry and Pharmacy and provides access to fully fledged spectroscopic and microscopic investigations that are perfectly complemented by device performance measurements and catalytic H2/O2 production.
These techniques are all necessary analytical tools for analysing systems that convert catalytically solar energy into useful sources of power.
ACES at Hanyang University is housed within the biomedical engineering department and provides access to the following equipment:
