A global hub of Photonics research, creating transformational new approaches to sensing and transdisciplinary problem solvers.

Many of the challenges we face as a society can only be solved by pursuing a transdisciplinary approach to science. The Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS) has been created to bring together experimental physicists, chemists, material scientists, biologists, experimentally driven theoretical scientists and medical researchers to create new sensing and measurement technologies.
