Nanostructures for Electromaterial

Electromaterials underpin modern society. They are materials that conduct electricity and can be found in the batteries that power our cameras and many modern appliances. The battery provides energy through the ability to move electrons from one electrode to the other an ability strongly dependant on the size of the materials.

This video uses animation to explain how researchers at the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute at the University of Wollongong and research partners at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science are working with electromaterials at the nano level (1,000 times less than the diameter of a human hair) to address important medical challenges. This includes new biologically driven structures that can power the new generation of smarter bionic implants.

This multidisciplinary group of Australian-based researchers are driven by the need to realise real clinical benefits from their exploratory research programs.
