    Project Details

    Description

    The Centre of Excellence in Antimatter-Matter Studies (CAMS) will develop tools and techniques to lead Australia into a new and exciting area of research in the physical, chemical and biological sciences. Pre-eminent Australian and international scientists will explore antimatter-matter interactions, in fundamental and applied fields, so that Australia maintains an international role in this emerging field. All particles have anti-particles of which the most abundant is the positron, the electron's antiparticle. The positron is the "workshop" for most anti-matter studies and we shall use it to characterize nanoscale materials, including gases, polymers, insulators, thin films and surfaces, and to develop novel, nanostructured materials.
