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
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.
