The Division is home for all like-minded professionals including researchers, students and industry experts who are interested in the training, research, development and demonstration of a wide range of carbon related science and engineering.

Our Purpose

Our Carbon Division was created to:
  • Provide a unique interaction platform for professionals from industry, academia and public funded research organisations who are interested in carbon related science and engineering
  • Disseminate the latest research and applications of carbon
  • Provide a space for the professional development of carbon scientists
  • Encourage students to embark on a career in carbon related academic research or industries.

Our broad areas cover:

  • materials design, modelling, product development, and structural and functional applications of carbon materials composed primarily of elemental carbon
  • formation, structure, properties, behaviour, and technological applications of carbon
  • synthetic or natural carbon materials and products such as graphene, graphite, carbon fibre, carbon nanotubes, and carbon foams
  • hybrid materials including dispersions, coatings, fibres and composites
  • application areas including sectors such as energy, coatings, aerospace, automotive, defence, electronics, sports, and construction.
