Graphene coatings make steel corrosion-resistant

IFM researchers have grown graphene flakes directly onto stainless steel, improving the metal's resistance to corrosion.

Miracle fuel

IFM researchers are helping to make hydrogen extraction from water more feasible.

Not just a flight of fancy

IFM researchers get closer to shape-morphing aircraft wings.

Deakin showcases 3D sheet metal forming at Numisheet 2014
