Photonics research stories

Photonics research at the Australian National University has a strong sense of collaboration between disciplines. This sees it being used across number of different departments and research groups. Astronomers use photonics for planetary detection, neurobiologists for brain imaging, and photonics continually pushes for new developments in nanotechnology, enabling advances in telecommunications and a better internet. From fundamental science to industry collaboration on applied technologies, photonics at the ANU is diverse, constantly evolving, and at the cutting edge.
