Research interests

Hua Chen, a microscopy specialist and ARC post-doctoral fellow, works at Centre for Advanced Microscopy, ANU. He has been studying and working in the field of materials sciences and engineering, which includes various nanomaterials, structure and composite materials, functional thin films, and microelectronic devices. He is very familiar with the synthesis, modification, and characterization of materials.

Currently, he is focusing on characterization and synthesis nanomaterials. This includes the structure and morphology analyses using:

  • AFM.
  • SEM and TEM with EDS.
  • Pattern growth nanotubes.
  • Rare earth elements doping.
  • Au.
  • Pt coating decoration using a magnetron sputtering.
  • Spectral analyses.
  • Conductance property of nanotubes.
  • Applications of the nano-structures as nano-sensors.
