Matt Watkins visited the groups of Andrew Rohl, Julian Gale and Paulo Rateiri at Curtin University, Perth, Western Australia as part of the Australian Research council funded project “Imaging defects at atomic resolution via state-of-the-art atomic force microscopy and petascale simulations”.

The aim of the project is to be able to identify, with atomic precision, surfaces in solution. This could lead to new ideas about how crystals grow or dissolve, and will allow the study of many phenomena, corrosion for instance, under environmental conditions.
