UWA’s Physics workshop is a technical hub of innovation for the creation of unique cutting-edge research tools and equipment that cannot be bought ‘off the shelf’.

A highly advanced research and development space, the facility specialises in high-precision machining, ultra-high vacuum technology and cryogenics.

Its skilled technicians employ state-of-the-art computer-aided design packages for initial concept design and are involved in fabrication, installation and commissioning.

“The facility supports experimental research for the energy, minerals, health and other sectors and is an enormously valued co-located facility for many UWA researchers - particularly in the chemistry and mechanical engineering fields,”
says Winthrop Professor Michael Johns.
