You are invited to the grand opening of the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication’s Diamond Deposition Suite. The most advanced of its kind in Australia, the suite provides the unique ability to grow ultra high purity diamond, as well as semi-conducting diamond. Use of thin diamond films is a burgeoning research field, with Australian investigators leading the way in the use of diamond for bionic eye implantable devices.

The MCN suite will also extend R&D capabilities for our industry partners in biosensor research, as well as in electronics, quantum information processing and manufacturing applications. Our panel of diamond experts includes Bionic Vision Australia’s Professor Steven Prawer, ARC Laureate Fellow and quantum information specialist, Professor Lloyd Hollenberg, and diamond savant, Dr Alastair Stacey. Dr. Alastair Stacey will showcase the industrial applications of diamond as well as highlight Australia’s place on the world research stage and some of the future applications of diamond.  Prof. Steven Prawer will highlight the work undertaken on the Bionic eye project and the unique ways in which diamond has the development of implantable bionics.

Prof. Lloyd Hollenberg will discuss how researchers are exploiting the quantum properties of diamond for new sensing technologies in nanoscale biology. Included in these technologies are nano-scopic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and high resolution neuronal imaging.  The seminar will conclude with an official opening of the Diamond Deposition Suite. Morning tea and optional tours of the facility will follow.
