Institute of Photonics and Optical Science
The Institute of Photonics and Optical Science (IPOS) draws together research and teaching expertise across the Schools of Physics, Electrical and Information Engineering, Mathematics, Chemistry and the Electron Microscope Unit.
Our research spans all areas of optics and photonics, both fundamental and applied, including the activities of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS) in the School of Physics, those of the Fibre Optics and Photonics Laboratory in the School of Electrical and Information Engineering, and astronomical instrumentation (Astrophotonics) programs of the Sydney Institute for Astronomy in the School of Physics.
Optics innovation an industry success
An optics innovation by an IPOS researcher has been a financial and technology transfer success story creating a wave of sales for Finisar, the Australian company that has used the new technology. Full story can be found here.
Funding boost for information technology
A University of Sydney research program focussed on photonic signal processing to improve defence capability is among a handful of projects to receive federal government funding announced today by Minister for Defence Science and Personnel Warren Snowdon. More details can be found here.
Grant Success: CUDOS Researchers receive ARC grants
CUDOS and IPOS researchers have a received a total of $2.0M in research funding in recent announcements. The Australian Research Council will fund 3 Discovery Projects and 2 DECRAs This is a great success for the CUDOS/IPOS researchers involved in these project and for the University as a whole. Congratullations! The details of the grants are listed here.
