Confocal microscope for high-resolution microtopographic analysis of surfaces in historical, forensic and polymer sciences (ARC LIEF Grant administered by The Flinders University of South Australia) (2013–2014)

High-resolution analyses of microscopic patterns on surfaces using confocal microscopy can provide vital clues into the nature of ancient diets and environments, adaptive evolution, weapons used in crimes, and properties of polymers. This instrument will heighten Australia¿s capacity for world-leading research in areas of major national importance.
