Instrumentation involves the measurement of phenomena ranging from nano-scale molecular processes in biological cells right through to macro-scale chemical processes in industrial reactors, including environmental monitoring, disease diagnosis, drug and explosive detection and molecular imaging for health-care and the life-sciences.
To meet the measurement demands, research is conducted into new instrumentation exploiting a wide range of advanced chemical, biochemical and physical sensors that utilise optical spectroscopies, complex mass spectrometries such ion mobility and secondary ion mass spectrometry, laser generated ultra-sound, laser trapping, polymer microfabrication, microfluidics, optical fibre sensing and PET tomography. Application and development of non invasive spectroscopic techniques to assess tissue viability, hospital based research.
