Welcome to the CUDOS node and CUDOS headquarters at the University of Sydney. We are situated in the School of Physics, one of the oldest and most prestigious research schools in Australia. The School offers internationally recognized expertise in applied physics, astronomy, astrophysics, medical physics and theoretical physics. The CUDOS research group enjoys a rich complement of experimental and theoretical physicists working closely on some of the most exciting topics in photonic sciences. Professor Benjamin J. Eggleton is the Director of CUDOS, and an ARC Laureate Fellow; Professor Martijn de Sterke is the Associate Director and Professor Ross McPhedran is an ARC Professorial Fellow; Dr Boris Kuhlmey is an ARC Future Fellow and Professor Simon Fleming is CUDOS Associate Investigator. The research programs are conducted in state-of-the art laboratories, constructed to provide CUDOS with every technological advantage. CUDOS@USYD is a major participant in the Sydney University Institute of Photonics and Optical Science.
Congratulations to the CUDOS members who were successful in the ARC Funding announced on November 8th, for funding commencing 2014. Including: 2 DECRA (Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards), 2 Discovery Projects, 2 LEIF (Linkage, Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities) Grants.
Congratulations to CUDOS team for the Nature Communications publication: "Integrated spatial multiplexing of heralded single-photon sources". The research has been conducted in collaboration across CUDOS nodes at USYD and Macquarie with Partner Investigator Prof Thomas Krauss at St Andrews and York University and DSTO (Dr. Trung Vo).
Congratulations on the 2 CUDOS@Sydney Postdeadline papers to be presented at the FiO meeting in Orlando. More information can be found in an article on the school of physics website.
CUDOS' Photonics Showcase will be held on Friday November 22, at the Australian Technology Park, Eveleigh, Sydney.
New Nanoscience building for CUDOS
In early 2010 the University was awarded $40 m towards the construction of a $110 m new building for research in the physical sciences, focussing on nanoscience, in the third round of funding from the Federal Government's Education Investment Fund (EIF). With co-investment from the University, this building – the Australian Institute for Nanoscience – will be a world-leading research and teaching facility designed to meet the demanding requirements of nanoscience research in decades to come. The building's advanced research capability will be housed alongside comprehensive facilities for student-focussed undergraduate and graduate teaching and integrated with the existing heritage-listed building for the School of Physics.

Benjamin Eggleton received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Sydney in 1996. He is currently a Federation Fellow, Professor of Physics and the Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Ultrahigh-bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS). Previously, he was with Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies where he headed the Photonic Devices Research Department, and was Research Director at the Specialty Photonics Division.
