A closer look: Saving the world atom by atom

Professor Julie Cairney (Professor, The University of Sydney)

 @JulieCairney

How many atoms in a pint of beer? Roughly 2×10^26. That many grains of sand would make up 100 million Earths. I’ll talk about how we can look at these atoms, from huge electron microscopes to 3D atomic-scale mapping tools.

Atom-thick membrane: Water they think of next!

Dr Adrian Murdock (Postdoctoral Research Fellow, CSIRO)

 @adriantmurdock

Imagine a new water membrane that works simpler, lasts longer, and is extraordinarily effective- perhaps the best ever! Found out how CSIRO cleaned Sydney Harbour water using graphene, a one-atom-thick material, and their hopes to clean water for all.
