Welcome from the Director


“At the Centre for Translational Atomaterials (CTAM), we have a team of passionate researchers, who cannot only design atomic structures using artificial intelligence, they are also good at synthesizing and characterizing such materials with a high accuracy in a controllable way. The functionalities of such wonder materials can be fully appreciated through intelligent architecture design and 3D nanoprinting. Most important of all, we have a cohort of  researchers, engineers and business people to help us translating the material innovation into real life .”

Director: Centre for Translational Atomaterials



Translate the Value of Atomaterials


 Discipline context, Competitive and Collaborative Environment

 The Centre focuses on the establishment of the atomaterial concept, conducting molecular level theoretical modelling, simulation and intelligent design, undertaking accurately controlled synthesis and in-situ characterisation, developing atomic fabrication tools with tailored laser pulses and atomic tools, and translating the atotechnologies to industry to create a research and development ecosystem.

Based on the unique competitive advantages of SUT in graphene fundamental research and technology development and translation, the Centre is designed to target the rising challenges in global material development and champion Swinburne University of Technology to be one of the pioneers in the atomaterial field.
