MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology
The MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology is a national network of leading New Zealand scientists, leveraging strengths across the country and internationally, working collaboratively utilising a programme-based approach to undertake harder, higher level research that drives innovation and economic growth in and for relevant New Zealand industries.
The research undertaken by institute investigators includes electronic and photovoltaic materials with tailored performance, nanoporous materials for energy- and environment-related applications, functional nanomaterials inspired by biology, or manufactured using biology, for advanced applications in energy, medicine and sensing, and new nano-tools for cellular studies.
We build materials and devices from atoms and molecules, developing and applying cutting-edge techniques in physics, chemistry and engineering. We capture our diversity to create benefit and build strength.
The MacDiarmid Institute was New Zealand’s first Centre of Research Excellence.
