IPAS Members Awarded over $6.5M by Australian Research Council

Congratulations to the 18 Members of the Institute for Photonics & Advanced Sensing (IPAS) listed below on their successful ARC Discovery, DORA, Linkage and DECRA grant applications. Over $6.5M was awarded over 14 successful grants. Particular mention should go to A/Prof. Heike Ebendorff-Heidepriem who secured two Discovery grants and one LIEF grant, to Professor Andre Luiten whose team secured one Discovery grant, one DORA Fellowship and one LIEF grant, to Prof Andrew Abell who secured one Discovery grant and one LIEF grant and to Dr Jonathan George who secured a DECRA, Discovery and a LIEF grant. This new funding will result in exciting new research and significant new research infrastructure (including new NMR facilities) in Adelaide. The results were outstanding across the IPAS science themes.
