At the Australian National University (ANU) nanotubes have been produced by ball milling. Carbon and boron nitride (BN) nanotubes have been produced by a ball milling and annealing process. The synthesis method has been developed by Dr Ying Chen and colleagues.

The synthesis can produce large quantity and high yield of carbon and BN nanotubes and thus commercial BN nanotubes are available at ANU. In addition to nanotubes, we also produce nanoparticles, nanowires and other nanomaterials.

AUN is working on several cutting edge areas of nanotechnology research, inclduing:

  • Development of a high brightness Focussed Ion Beam for nano-technology applications.
  • Development of a nano-titer plate
  • Trapping motor proteins in nano-structures to investigate their behaviour.
  • Deposition of nano-clusters of platinum for fuel cell electrodes.
