Ahakoa he iti, he pounamu – the smallest things are the most precious
From atoms, to molecules, to nanostructures and complex materials: the MacDiarmid Institute brings physicists, engineers, chemists and biologists together to explore the sustainable use of our most fundamental natural building blocks – atoms – in designing materials that add value to our lives. Our expertise in control of atomistic and nanoscale structure has been used since 2002 to create materials with a vast range of new functions.
From July 2021 through to December 2028, our new research programmes will address some of the greatest challenges facing New Zealand today – the interrelated issues of climate change, economic dependence on carbon, and the energy requirements of the modern world, together with the sustainable use and re-use of materials.
