It is important to critically evaluate all information found on the Web. The following sites represent a small selection of the potentially relevant Australian links and may act as a starting point.
ARC Centre of Excellence in Bio-Nano Science and Technology
The ARC Centre of Excellence in Bio-Nano Science and Technology (CBNS) is a national innovator in bio-nano sciences and an incubator of the expertise and technological excellence required to develop next generation bio-responsive nanomaterials.
Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology
The University of Queensland's Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) is an integrated multi-disciplinary research institute bringing together researchers in the areas of bioengineering and nanotechnology.
Australian Institute of Physics
The Australian Institute of Physics (AIP) exists to support professional physicists and to promote all aspects of physics to the wider community.
Australian Nanotechnology Alliance
The Australian Nanotechnology Alliance (ANA) is an industry-led, research supported membership-based alliance comprising organisations that underpin Australia's current and future economic growth in diverse industry sectors including mining, manufacturing agriculture, construction, biotechnology, marine, aviation and microelectronics.
Australian Nanotechnology Network
The Australian Nanotechnology Network(ANN)(formerly ARCNN) is dedicated to substantially enhancing Australia’s research outcomes in this important field by promoting effective collaborations, exposing researchers to alternative and complementary approaches from other fields, encouraging forums for postgraduate students and early career researchers, increasing nanotechnology infrastructure, enhancing awareness of existing infrastructure, and promoting international links.
National Measurement Institute: Nanometrology Research
NMI develops measurement infrastructure, expertise and standards for nanotechnology. This work will assist Australian researchers and industries to capitalise on growth and commercialisation opportunities, and contribute to effective health, safety and environmental regulatory frameworks for nanotechnologies. The program is supported by the Australian Government's National Enabling Technologies Strategy.
It is important to critically evaluate all information found on the Web. The following sites represent a small selection of the potentially relevant international web links and may act as a starting point.
American Physical Society
Leading organisation of physicists, with a focus to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics
Institute of Physics
The IOP is devoted to increasing the practice, understanding and application of physics and is a leading communicator of physics-related science to all audiences, from specialists through to government and the general public. Its publishing company, IOP Publishing, is a world leader in scientific publishing and the electronic dissemination of physics
Nano Science and Technology Institute
The Nano Science and Technology Institute (NSTI) advances and integrates nano and other advanced technologies through education, conventions, business publishing, and research services. NSTI produces the annual Nanotech conference and expo, which attracts more than 5,000 industrial, academic, business and governmental attendees from around the world. It is the largest gathering of the nanotechnology industry in the U.S.
Offers consulting, technology monitoring, and in-depth analysis, as well as up-to-the-minute news briefs and breaking developments in the nanosciences. The world's leading nanotech experts routinely contribute to the site, which has become the daily 'must read' site for stakeholders: inventors, investors, policy makers and opinion shapers
National Nanotechnology Initiative
The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) is a research and development initiative of the US Government.
