Our research



Our research impacts a range of areas from energy and the environment, to health and medicine, to communications, computing and security. We also conduct fundamental research that extends the frontiers of knowledge.


Our Flagship Programs are ambitious, long-term, large-scale programs directly addressing our three research Themes. The Sydney Nanoscience Hub building currently supports Flagships in the Communications, Computing and Security Theme, which relies heavily on top-down nanofabrication and advanced characterisation, as well as precision metrology. Additional Flagships also address the Energy & Environment and Health & Medicine Themes.

Our researchers are also addressing the research Themes through a number of smaller-scale Foundational Projects and Accelerator Projects.
