Background

The University of Adelaide has state-of-the-art research laboratories for developing soft glass microstructured optical fibres within the Centre of Expertise in Photonics. Building on the success of this centre, the University has recently formed a new research institute, IPAS, the institute for Photonics & Advanced Sensing, which brings together physicists, chemists and biologists to pursue an ambitious transdisciplinary research agenda.
