2 excellent Site Tours

including 5 excellent presentations 

Australian SynchrotronThe Australian Synchrotron - turning brilliant ideas into brilliant outcomes.
A synchrotron is a large machine (about the size of a football field) that accelerates electrons to almost the speed of light. As the electrons are deflected through magnetic fields they create extremely bright light. The bright light is channelled down beamlines to experimental workstations where it is used for research.

Synchrotron light is advancing research and development in many practical applications in fields as diverse as:
•    Engineering (imaging of industrial processes in real time, high resolution imaging of cracks / defects in structures, the operation of catalysts in large chemical engineering processes)
•    Agriculture (plant genomics, soil studies, animal & plant imaging)
•    Advanced Materials (nanostructured materials, intelligent polymers, ceramics, light metals and alloys, electronic and magnetic materials)
•    Minerals Exploration (rapid analysis of drill core samples, comprehensive characterisation of ores )
•   Biosciences (macromolecular/protein crystallography and cell biology)
•    Environmental Sciences (toxicology, atmospheric research, clean combustion and cleaner industrial production technologies)
•    Medical Research
•    Forensics

Melbourne Centre of NanoFabrication The Melbourne Centre for Nanonfabrication ( MCN ) is a $50 million world-class nanofabrication centre, combining cutting-edge technologies with the knowledge and skills of expert process engineers.
MCN employs LEAN operating principles focused on the customer experience.  The MCN emphasis is the chemical and biological manipulation of nano-structures and the design, rapid-prototyping and fabrication of nano-devices.  The have worked working primarily in the fields of solar energy, biosensing, micro-nano fluidic devices, drug delivery, micro-mechanical systems, optics and medical bionics.
