# Professor Michael Cortie

### Biography

Mike Cortie is the Director of the Institute for Nanoscale Technology at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), in Australia. He was born and educated in South Africa and has a BSc(Eng) degree in Physical Metallurgy, a Masters degree on the corrosion of zirconium and a PhD degree, on metal fatigue and fracture mechanics. After a stint at South Africa's Atomic Energy Corporation and at Pylon Engineering, a gear-cutting and general works, Mike joined Mintek, a minerals and metals research organisation. Mike headed the Physical Metallurgy Division of Mintek between 1997 and 2002. The Division consulted widely to South African and international industry and generated the major portion of its funds from foreign contract research. He relocated to Australia and joined UTS in July 2002.

Mike's current research interest is nanotechnology, and in particular the applications of precious metals in nanotechnology. The synthesis or fabrication of precious metal nanostructures of various shapes and compositions, and their optical properties is a strong theme. Many of these activities fall into the field of ‘plasmonics’ and the study of the electric field distributions around these structures is an important dimension to the research at UTS.

Mike also does applied research for industrial clients. For example projects on the synthesis of zinc oxide, an important industrial chemical, and on sensors for measuring the concentration of hydrogen peroxide were completed in 2012.

Published work spans ferritic and nickel-substituted stainless steels, intermetallic compounds with the C1 (CF12) and B2/L21 crystal structures, X-ray diffraction and crystallographic texture of bcc and fcc alloys, cellular automata and the simulation of metal solidification, cracking and solid state transformations, explosive interactions between molten metal and water, phase transformations in and Au- and Pt-containing alloys and compounds, mathematical modelling, solid state chemistry of zinc hydroxide double salts, plasmonics and electromagnetic phenomena around nanoscale antennas, growth of gold nanorods, and targeting of gold nanoparticles to macrophage cells and protozoan parasites.

### Research Interests

Michael Cortie’s research is directed at the use of metals in nanoscale technology and in nanomaterials in general. Oxidation and other surface phenomena become an important issue at the nanoscale. One solution to these problems is to use noble elements such as gold or silver for nanodevices that need to be metallic, and in this way control the surface properties. In addition, the use of these elements opens up the possibility of exploiting novel optical functionalities, in particular plasmon resonances, and the study of these resonances is a second important theme in Mike’s research. A recent paper, for example, shows how 'dark mode' plasmon resonances can be excited using a specially tuned nano-antenna. Overall, the work is aimed at the synthesis and/or fabrication of various nanoscale devices, and their eventual exploitation for various technological purposes. One use might be in spectrally selective coatings for energy efficiency, another is in the design of nanoporous sponges for sensor applications.

See some of Cortie's YouTube videos for animations of the nanoscale electric field of of localized surface plasmon resonances:

Longitudinal plasmon resonance

Another theme of Cortie's research is the application of nanotechnology in medicine. In work with colleagues he has shown how gold nanoparticles can be selectively targeted to macrophage cells, for example. Other work has shown up the intriguing possibility that gold nanoparticles can be used to down-regulate (suppress) and inflammatory response in a obese mice (and by implication humans).

Mike also has an interest in intermetallic compounds, shape memory alloys, precious metal alloys, especially of gold and platinum, the stainless steels and the semi-conducting metal oxides. Many of the properties of these substances are controlled by phenomena that occur at the nanoscale. For example, while pure gold is relatively soft, its hardness can be greatly increased by reducing its grain size to several tens of nanometers.
