Andrew Whittaker 教授简介:

Professor Andrew Whittaker's research aims to develop innovative solutions to major health and nanotechnology challenges. He is a scientific leader, having been President of the Pacific Polymer Federation, Chair of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute Polymer Division and has served on the Australian Research Council College of Experts. He is a chief investigator on the ARC Centre of Excellence in Bio-Nano Science and Technology. Professor Whittaker’s work in synthesis and characterisation of polymeric materials has underpinned major development programs in several key areas. In the field of materials for photolithography this has been supported by funding from leading semiconductor companies Intel, Sematech and the Dow Chemical Company. Outcomes include novel high-index resists for 193nm immersion lithography, new concepts for design of non-chemically amplified resists for EUV lithography, and more recently novel approaches to healing roughness in IC features. In the field of biomaterials science, Professor Whittaker is most active in developing novel imaging agents for MRI, and introduced a new class of 19F polymeric agents. He is an expert in the fundamentals of diffusion process in complex solids. He has an international reputation in the field of NMR and MRI of polymeric systems.
