The national characterisation infrastructure supports researchers from a wide range of disciplines, sites and industries. Integrating imaging, spectroscopy and scattering processes, and examining morphology, structure, composition, bonding and dispersion, characterisation is a critical component to many areas of research like biological, biomedical, chemical, and physical sciences. AMMRF, ANSTO and NIF provide Australian researchers and industry with access to national research capabilities.
The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) is one of Australia's largest public research organisations. The Federal Government has entrusted ANSTO with ownership and operation of over $1 billion worth of our country's landmark and national research infrastructure.
This includes the Open Pool Australian Light-water (OPAL) multi-purpose reactor, the Australian Synchrotron, the Centre for Accelerator Science (CAS), the Australian Centre for Neutron Scattering (ACNS) and the National Deuteration Facility.
More than 500 scientists, engineers and technicians work at ANSTO to answer significant questions relating to the environmental, human health, the nuclear fuel cycle and industry using nuclear techniques.
Connecting Researchers with Infrastructure, National Imaging Facility (NIF) is a network of leading imaging centres across Australia that pioneer biomedical research and clinical translation.

NIF merges the expertise of biologists, neuroscientists, imaging researchers and clinicians, material scientist, platform engineers, and computational scientist across Australia to provide open access to a range of leading edge instrumentation and expertise in the optimal use of imaging technology.
Australian Microscopy & Microanalysis Research Facility (AMMRF)
If you need a closer look at your samples the AMMRF can help. The AMMRF is a national network of university-based microscopy centres that provides access to microscopes, microanalysis instruments and expertise. All Australian researchers, whether in industry or academia can use the AMMRF to get a better understanding of the structure, function and behaviour of samples including cells, biomaterials, alloys, ceramics and nanoparticles, and many others. The collaborative, distributed infrastructure makes it easy to find a suitable location for your analysis, minimising blocks to your R&D efforts. We want to help you innovate through the gathering of accurate information that can be integrated into new knowledge to fuel your business.
