The Department of Electronic Materials Engineering conducts world-leading research across a broad range of fields, spanning fundamental materials science and solid-state physics to prototype electronic and photonic device fabrication. EME research programs are underpinned by state-of-the-art equipment, both on- and off-site, and often include national and international collaborators from academia, national laboratories and industry. Support for these programs is drawn from the University and industry plus state, federal and international funding agencies. An indicative though not exhaustive list of research themes is given below, representative of the major research programs active in the Department:

Semiconductor materials science

Ion implantation and ion irradiation

Nanomaterials and nanotechnology

Electronic/optoelectronic/photonic devices
