Dr Vladimir Strezov designed thermo-analytical techniques for applying the thermal characterisation of materials, monitoring the energy required for their processing and understanding the fundamental properties responsible for pollutant formation at the source.
Nicholas and his team have validated a commercial gaming system for the measurement of research quality event related brain activity, this is particularly useful for working with children.
Yiqing’s PhD research has broken through the current bio-sensing constraints through his invention of a time-resolved approach called “OSAM”, an Orthogonal Scanning Automated Microscopy suitable for rapid detection of single cells.
The Advanced Cytometry Labs @ Macquarie has invented and demonstrated a library of hypersensitive molecular probes—SUPER Dots—able to pinpoint small numbers of abnormal cells in water, blood and urine.
The biggest challenge in neuroscience research is understanding how complex cognitive abilities emerge from the brain, and how these capacities have evolved. To address this we are creating a computer model of the insect brain.
The Xy-pic package started out as a means for Rose to present his M.Sc. thesis in the early 1990s, but was quickly seen to be applicable to a wide range of mathematical graphics, in particular for Abstract Algebra and Category Theory.
Diamond’s extraordinary properties are already providing us with massive leaps in optical device performance. In partnership with commercial and government organisations, we are working to exploit these advantages to solve real world challenges.
Advances in miniaturisation science and engineering have revolutionised micro-electronics. Researchers at Macquarie University are developing a new fabrication platform that can enable a unique class of 3-dimensional lightwave circuits
A collaboration between staff and students of MQ University and Prof Earl Owen of the Microsearch Foundation developed solid protein “solders” for joining severed tissues in microsurgery. Laser light is delivered by optical fibre to cure the protein solder and cause it to adhere to the two tissues to be joined.
“Gaming EEG systems” use electrical brain activity to control the movement of characters or objects in games via unobtrusive headsets and are significantly less expensive than ERP systems commonly used for research.
