Engage with us

We are scientists and engineers who do amazing things with light. How can we make light work for you? We have demonstrated applications in these areas.

Our research outcomes are often of benefit to industry partners, government bodies and the community. We aim to engage with external organisations to create, apply and make accessible the knowledge that is derived from our research. The Centre has a 30-year track record in working with industry. We collaborate with local and international partners in sectors such as manufacturing, medical devices, engineering technology, water recycling and supply, defence and life sciences. These projects are often part-funded via Macquarie University grants or the Australian Research Council’s Linkage Grant scheme.

We can offer joint collaborative projects, contract research, consulting and the use of laboratory facilities.

Joint Collaborative Projects – Staff of MQ Photonics Research Centre are eligible for funding to establish collaborative projects with external partners such as industry and government bodies. Please direct any enquiries to research group leaders. Funding opportunities are available through the Australian Research Council’s Linkage Grant and the Macquarie University Partnerships and Seeding Grant Schemes.

Contract Research – Contract research projects provide an avenue for external parties to undertake research projects with the greatest control of the project plan and intellectual ownership. Contracts are normally facilitated through Research Services. Please direct any enquiries to research group leaders.
