Lab and Facilities
Instrumentation development lab
This is our playground.
Here we are set up to develop and test photon based beam-paths, high vacuum circuits, robotics and whatever else comes to mind.
This includes the world-first commercial multigas Plasma FIB (picture below). which we equipped with cryo-stage, cryo-transfer system and fluorescence microscope.
Ramaciotti Centre for cryo-ELectron Microscopy
We have regular access to the best-equipped cryoEM facility in Australia, featuring:
1 FEI Titan Krios equipped with Volta Phase Plates and 2 Direct Electron Detectors (FEI Falcon II and Post GIF Gatan K2)
1 FEI Arctica (To be installed)
1 FEI Helios G4 with cryo stage
1 FEI T12 Biotwin
1 FEI Nova NanoSEM
To build our instrumentation we access a number of local facilities, including mechanical workshops, the Monash Centre for Nanofabrication (MCN).
Here we have access to a fully equipped clean room together with UV and Electron Lithography.
