Mechanical Behaviours of Nanostructured Materials an Microsystems

The ability to control the nanostructure of materials has opened up opportunities to create new materials with enhanced strength and new smart microsystems. Many new nanostructured materials and nanocomposites exhibit superior mechanical and physical properties compared to existing materials. New research at QUT is focussing on the mechanical behaviour of nanostructured materials and microsystems and on-going projects are focused on characterization of nanocrystalline materials for a wide range of applications, from hydrogen storage to fibre-optic devices.
