Advanced Characterisation Facility

Understanding material properties, structure and composition is fundamental to the development of new materials for use in key areas such as healthcare, energy, IT and transport. While the need for these materials is growing rapidly, Deakin’s state of the art facilities ensure we can stay ahead of demand.

Bridging the gap

IFM is recognised globally for applications-based materials research. Our niche in the materials research field has been to bridge the gap between engineering and science by applying a broad range of advanced characterisation techniques to real-world issues including fatigue, energy and corrosion.
