Brief description This project will result in significant advances in micro/nano fabrication, that is the cornerstone of nanotechnology, and an understanding of the performance of micro/nano actuators produced from electroactive materials. The project outcomes will provide a technology platform to establish micro/nano robotic systems for vaccine and gene delivery, intelligent drug delivery systems, microfluidic systems for disease monitoring and treatment, water treatment and pollution control kits, microrobotic systems for pipeline inspection and maintenance, and minimally invasive surgery. National benefits will be in the areas of human health, sustainable environment and frontier technologies to stimulate the growth of world-class Australian industries.
