Markus Pfau 18.4.13 | The University of Wollongong welcomed its first candidate in a new international PhD exchange program this week when Markus Pfau from Mainz, Germany, joined UOW’s Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI). The new ongoing exchange program between UOW and Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nurnberg, Germany (FAU) will extend UOW’s international research collaborations into tackling the global challenge of sustainable energy through development of new solar cells.

Nanoscopic insights to build next generation of bionic materials

Nanoscopic NEWS tile5.2.13 | Nanoscopic insights are touted to transform the next generation of bionic materials, with scientists now able to observe the process of electrical stimulation on a molecular level. The innovation is thanks to the work of a research team from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science. The new approach, described in the February issue of science and technology journal SMALL, enables the real-time detection of single interactions occurring between protein-conducting polymers and the eletrical stimulation of cells.

Industry invited to lab bench for Fellowship

Fellowship front page tile18.1.13 | Industry representatives are to be placed at the heart of scientific innovation – or more specifically, where it all begins -- in the laboratory, thanks to an eight-week fellowship program at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES). The in-house program is to host Fellows in the facilities of ACES’ Wollongong Node, where they can develop a hands-on understanding of innovative technology and materials potential as they work alongside researchers on a nominated project.
