Dr Lee Spitler’s research develops methods to maximise the information extracted from telescope observations. This allows the charting of previously unknown aspects of the universe and provides a gateway to new and original research investigations.
Dr Simon Gross has developed a world-class ultrafast laser inscription facility for enabling research breakthroughs. Ultrafast laser inscription is the only fabrication process that natively supports integrated 2-dimensional optical circuits.
Modelling ecological phenomena on the basis of energy and materials available in the environment provides a deeper understanding of the environmental constraints to life. Reef fishes represent the most species-rich group of vetebrates and occupy diverse habitats that vary substantially in temperature across the globe.
Our current understanding of large-scale crustal structures is mostly via seismic tomography images, which are similar to CT scans used in medicine. The recent advent of ambient-noise tomography, which relies on information from seismic noise generated by oceans, has proved to be extremely powerful in resolving crustal structures.
Professor David Raftos works with the Australian oyster industry to find solutions to the growing problems of disease and environmental stress.
Macquarie University is one of the three pillars of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP).
Environmental risk management in the energy and resource industries is essential in order to minimise impacts of emissions and waste on sustainability, and human and ecosystem health.
The type of laser being developed is called a fibre laser and consists of a laser operating within an optical fibre, the innovation approach used was when these lasers were combined with internal mirrors, known as fibre Bragg gratings.
Unparalleled computing power, ultra-sensitive measurement and fundamental insights into the laws of nature are just a few of the capabilities offered by photonic quantum information science.
Associate Professor Rich Mildren explains the possible uses of his Diamond Laser System for Advanced Ablative Microsurgery.
