The Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing fosters excellence in research in materials science, chemistry, biology and physics and develops disruptive new tools for measurement. »
Experimental physics research of any flavour focuses on pushing the limits of what can be measured. IPAS creates the opportunity to invent and harness new tools for measurement to address many of the current exciting big questions in science.
Many of the challenges we face as a society can only be solved by pursuing a transdisciplinary approach that brings together experimental physicists, chemists, material scientists, biologists, experimentally driven theoretical scientists and medical researchers to create new sensing and measurement technologies.
We work to create new tools that will change the questions scientists can ask, stimulate the creation of new industries, and create a new profession of transdisciplinary problem solvers. More information about IPAS. Research at IPAS and the 6 research themes.
ARC Centre of Excellence
Our recent bid for the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) was successful! Please see the centre website www.cnbp.org.au for more information.
