High performance regenerated silk fibres with biomimetic structure

Natural silk is a remarkable natural fibre produced by silkworms, spiders and other arthropods. For example, spider silk is the strongest known natural fibre, with a toughness that exceeds Kevlar. Read more

Bioinspired materials: strong and self-healing polymer materials

Biomaterials, for example bone and skin have a remarkable capacity to self-heal. These natural materials are hydrogels, however synthetic hydrogels cannot perform the same task as they are inherently weak and not usually self-healing. Read more

3D printed electronics

A 3D printer has been developed by the group that combines unprecedented three-dimensional control and material flexibility, to culminate in a new process for 2D patterning and 3D printing of polymeric, organic, semiconducting, or metallic materials into complex shapes. Read more

Theoretical chemistry including reactivity and structure

A scholarship is available to undertake PhD or MPhil study in the group of Dr Terry Frankcombe at the Canberra campus of the University of New South Wales (UNSW Canberra). Read more

Microbial colour using textile fibre waste

Many microbes produce colour pigments due to secondary metabolites depending on the energy sources and surrounding environment. Examples include red colour produced by Penicillium miniolutem in Sabouraud broth, Rhizopus sp. Read more

Solid-state 3D printing of aluminium

Additive Friction Stir Deposition (AFSD) is an emerging metal 3D printing process. Distinctively a metal component is built up in layers in ASFD where deposition occurs in the solid-state, producing fine recrystallized microstructures resembling wrought materials. Read more

Bulk ultrafine grained steels through solid-state 3D printing

The project will be carried out in collaboration with our industry partner MELD Manufacturing at the Institute for Frontier Materials, Deakin University, Geelong, Australia (ifm.deakin.edu.au). Read more

Micro fibrillated protein fibre and applications

All natural fibres have a hierarchical structure consisting of micro and nano scale fibrils. The fibrils once extracted from natural fibres have excellent properties due to ultrafine dimensions and ability to be used in the form of suspensions. Read more

Bio-plastic film from cotton wastes

Cotton is the most used and economically the most important natural fibre in the world. During the ginning (cleaning) process and after textile fabrication, huge amounts of cotton motes, gin trash and textile wastes are produced. Read more

Multifunctional graphene coated natural non-woven for automotive applications

This PhD project is part of a partnership between Deakin University, Geelong, Australia and Ford Motor Company, USA. The successful applicant will spend 3 years at the Institute for Frontier Materials (ifm.deakin.edu.au), Deakin University. Read more
