State-of-the-art atomic-scale analysis capabilities for Deakin.

Deakin Electron Microscope Facility

Deakin Electron Microscopy Facility
Housed in the Geelong Technology Precinct at the Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus, our facility supports a wide range of research projects that lead and inspire innovations in materials science and engineering.

Researchers use the facility to develop and apply advanced materials in the sectors of manufacturing technology, energy efficiency, resource and infrastructure sustainability, including such diverse fields as metallurgy, textiles, biology and composites.

Our dedicated team aspire to provide the highest quality operator training and education.

Opened in September 2012 as Stage One of the federally funded Australian Future Fibres and Innovation Centre (AFFRIC) project, the electron microscope facility contains six purpose-built laboratories, featuring a comprehensive collection of instruments used in the characterisation of materials.

If you have a project that needs a purpose-built electron microscopy laboratory we invite you to make use of our open access facility.
