Institute for Nanoscale Technology

Institute for Nanoscale Technology

The Institute is a capability-building network of nanotech researchers across the university. The network's participants are particularly interested in the interaction of light with matter at the nanoscale, and on designing and making useful new molecules and nanostructures.
Dr Olga Shimoni joins UTS in 2014 as a Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellow developing novel multifunctional nanoparticles for application in biomedicine.
UTS Applied Physics Professor Matthew Phillips has been bestowed with one of the greatest honours in Thai science – a place on the board of Thailand’s national nanotechnology research program.
Dr Igor Aharonovich and PhD candidate Toby Shanley have discovered a new approach to incorporate rare earth ions into a diamond crystal, a promising candidate for data storage at the molecular scale.
Chemical doping is a standard method of tuning electronic and structural properties of materials. Now, it has been shown that doping a pure superconductor can induce a percolative transition to magnetism.
