Discovery Project awarded

Nico and Beatriz were successful in the latest round of grants from the Australian Research Council through their Discovery Project: Harnessing high-precision silicon nanofabrication methods ot create the next generation of bio-inspired viral biosensors....

New paper in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces

Roey and colleagues have recently published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces their work on the production of tunable nonclose packed particle arrays by using self-assembly at liquid–liquid interfaces (SALI) deposition, and its application as...

New paper in Biomaterials

Tong and colleagues have recently published in Biomaterials their study on subcutaneous optical biosensors based on thermally hydrocarbonised porous silicon. Advanced biosensors in future medicine hinge on the evolvement of biomaterials. Porous silicon (pSi), a...

New manuscript in Nature Nanotechnology

Anzhela and colleagues have recently published in Nature Nanotechnology their Perspective on the analytical techniques for the detection and characterization of engineered nanoparticles in both human and environmental toxicology. The need to assess the human and...

Review published in Nano Energy

Soundarrajan and colleagues have recently published in Nano Energy their work  highlighting the potential of nanostructured silicon in solar water splitting. Inspired by photosynthesis, solar water electrolysis uses sunlight to produce hydrogen, a clean,...

New paper in Biomaterials Science

Morteza and colleagues have recently published in Biomaterials Science their study on thermally hydrocarbonised porous silicon nanoparticles (THCpSiNPs) capped with polyethylenimine (PEI) fabrication, and their potential for small interfering RNA (siRNA) delivery in an in...

Review published in Nanomedicine

Morteza and colleagues have recently published in Nanomedicine their review on silicon nanostructures applied to nanomedicine. Zero-valent, or elemental, silicon nanostructures exhibit a number of properties that render them attractive for applications in nanomedicine....

New paper in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces

Soundarrajan and colleagues have recently published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces their work on the development of an effective solar-powered silicon device for hydrogen production from water splitting. There is increasing demand for nanostructuring...

Congratulations Angela and Roey

As the establishment of the Future Industries Institute (FII) continues, we are glad to announce that Dr. Angela Ivask and Dr. Roey Elnathan have been appointed as professional staff in the levels A/B/C. Please...
