Development of graphene-based materials holds promise for smart applications

A team of researchers from Swinburne are making a vital contribution to a DMTC-managed collaboration involving a national network of research and industry partners.

The DMTC project is focused on developing a detailed understanding of the functional performance of composite materials. The specific theme of work for the Swinburne researchers, led by Dr Nishar Hameed, is novel, hybrid graphene-based multi-scale composites that can deliver advances in sensing, electromagnetic and thermal signature control for applications in the defence domain.
