The role of the Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis (CMM) is to promote, support and initiate research and teaching in the applications of microscopy and microanalysis as well as to develop the discipline of microscopy and microanalysis itself. Within The University of Queensland, this brief requires involvement with the research and teaching programs of faculties and institutes:
CMM bridges the sciences and is dedicated to an understanding of the structure and composition of all materials at atomic molecular, cellular and macromolecular scales. This understanding arises primarily from the application of optical and electron-optical techniques to biological and non-biological materials, but also includes the use of x-rays, ions and surface signals. There is a growing strength at The University of Queensland in the area of nanotechnology, and the CMM provides key characterisation technology for practitioners in this exciting new field of study.
Primary fields of research associated with materials sciences include microstructure investigations of processing parameters in ceramics, metals and polymers; interface studies on a range of metals, ceramics and composites; and the characterisation of catalysts and substrates.
