The University of Western Australia has doubled its capacity to help find new mineral ore deposits through funding for a new NanoSIMS imaging and analysis facility announced yesterday by Federal Innovation, Industry Science and Research Minister Kim Carr.
The University of Western Australia's Director of the Centre for Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis, Winthrop Professor David Sampson, has been elected a Fellow of the prestigious international society for optics and photonics, SPIE.
The University of Western Australia's Director of the Centre forMicroscopy, Characterisation and Analysis, Winthrop Professor David Sampson, has been elected a Fellow of the international authority on optics and photonics, the prestigious Optical Society (OSA).
The University of Western Australia has become the first university in the world to join the United Nations international nuclear verification program, using UWA's advanced ion microprobe technology to help monitor global nuclear safeguards.
A discovery at The University of Western Australia that microbes helped shape rare spheres of iron-oxide on Earth may aid the newly landed Curiosity Rover in its search for the first verifiable signs of extra-terrestrial life in similar rocks on Mars.
Come along to CMCA, First Floor Physics Building and have at look at the range of Hawker Richardson Products for Productivity. Obligation free hands on demonstrations - bring your own samples and try the instruments.

Engineered nanoparticles have been the focus of much recent research with a wide-range of potential applications in catalysis, biomedicine, magnetic resonance imaging, data storage and environmental remediation.
The last mineral thought to have been unique to the Moon has been discovered in the remote Pilbara region of Western Australia. It was identified by researchers at The University of Western Australia's Centre for Microscopy, Characterisation and Analysis (CMCA).
Winthrop Professor Robyn Owens officially launched CMCA@Bayliss this week, highlighting the improved access to mass spectrometry, nuclear magentic resonance spectrometry and single-crystal X-ray diffraction facilities for all UWA staff and students.
T cells are the shock troops of the human immune system – they can be ordered to kill what they recognise. Remarkably nearly every T cell is uniquely different to each other due to mutations that occur during the synthesis of their T cell receptor (TCR).
All CMCA staff will be attending a Strategic Planning Day on Wednesday 30th November 2011. The CMCA office will be closed for all of that day; as a result only after hours access users will be able to use the Centre's facilities.
The Australian Microscopy & Microanalysis Research Facility (AMMRF) invites you to discover a world of structure, function and activity beyond the naked eye, captured using some of the world's most advanced imaging technology.
The AMMRF is proud to present this collection of images from its network of centres around Australia. AMMRF's expertise and technology is available to all Australian researchers, also enabling innovation through partnerships with industry.
