Physicist Prof Lloyd Hollenberg explains how quantum technologies are leading to the development of sensors of only a few atoms’ size -- small enough to be placed inside living cells to enable monitoring of biological processes. Presented by Dr Shane Huntington.
Polymer scientist Professor Dame Julia Higgins discusses neutron scattering and other techniques used in researching polymers, the large molecules found in nature and synthesised in the manufacture of materials such as nylon and silicon. With science host Dr Shane Huntington.
Chemical engineers Associate Professor Raymond Dagastine and Dr Rico Tabor shed light on the phenomena of bubbles and droplets, and explain why their underlying physics and chemistry are important to a wide range of industrial processes. With science host Dr Shane Huntington.
Prof Robert Shepherd and Prof Tony Burkitt explain ear function, hearing loss, and how cochlear implants have improved the lives of many people. Also, bionic interventions in other parts of the body. With science host Dr Shane Huntington.
Chemical Engineer Dr Ray Dagastine explains the crucial role of emulsions and surfactants in everyday items like shampoo and ice cream. The first of our special "Up Close Summer Season of Science". With host Dr Shane Huntington.
