Nano materials and devices

RMIT has contributed to the world-wide advances made in the exciting and progressive area of nanotechnology research.

The potential of nanotechnology has tantalised researchers across the world since the concept first emerged in the 1950s.

Supported by a strong collaborative research environment and state of the art equipment, our nanotech researchers work across multiple disciplines to unlock this potential.

A true multiple disciplinary approach sees nanotechnology contributing to all of RMIT’s five key areas of research focus with investigations being conducted in areas including:

  • Electronics, photonics and sensors
  • Medical, health, biotechnology and pharmaceutical sciences
  • Energy, the environment and air and water purification
