The CoEP at Adelaide has been at the forefront of photonics research worldwide. Our research spans many areas and ideas all the way from fundamental science to high-end applications, closely tied with industry. In the interview Prof. Monro highlights how the CoEP is looking at ways to use lasers and optical fibres to develop technologies for applications ranging from defence to environmental monitoring and even chemical sensing and medicine.

Chemical sensing

Microstructured optical fibres enable in-situ sensing of various chemical and biological compounds. One of the many new ways in which photonics is changing how we do things.

With the multi-million dollar institute to be launched soon Adelaide will continue to be driving photonic research, bringing together multiple scientific disciplines to solve a vast range of problems.
