Melbourne-based Monash University has built a 21st century microscope that can capture and process data so that researchers can analyse and interact with the visualised data in a 2D or 3D. The first part of this highly advanced project is Synchrotron, an extremely powerful microscope that can render a 3D model in incredible detail.

The huge amounts of data captured from the microscope are then processed by supercomputers in a project called MASSIVE (Multi-modal Australian ScienceS Imaging and Visualisation Environment), a specialised high performance computing facility for imaging and visualisation. MASSIVE is a collaboration among Monash University, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, Australian Synchrotron, and Victorian Partnership for Advanced Computing. It provides hardware, software and expertise to drive research in disciplines such as biomedical science, materials research, engineering and geosciences.
