April 2023: AuScope partner with the GAP to provide Access Funding for Australian critical minerals research!
We are pleased to announce a new funding initiative between the Geoscience Atom Probe Facility and AuScope to support innovative research projects that focus on the application of atom probe tomography to critical minerals research in Australia. Critical minerals research is broadly defined and can range from fundamental science on critical minerals through downstream processing and metal extraction. Funding will be used to provide the necessary access and technical expertise to undertake atom probe tomography analyses on critical minerals. This will include sample preparation, atom probe tomography analysis and data processing. More details are available here
