Terahertz and optical photonic devices

Electromagnetic waves at terahertz and optical wavelengths are used for data transfer, imaging and sensing, and transduction to convert electronic signals to photonic processes. We engineer materials at the nanoscale, with both physical and chemical modifications, to optimise properties for high-efficiency devices. New photonic devices based on dielectric resonators, utilising ultra-low-loss polymers, and stimuli-driven phase […]

Stretchable and wearable electronics and sensors

Ultra-thin and soft electronic circuits and sensors that can be placed on skin or incorporated into fabrics to measure environmental and health parameters are created by us. A convergence of electronics, sensing, and biomedical engineering is enabling circuits that mimic properties of the skin surfaces, towards electronic skin that augments performance or overcome wound damage. […]

Nanoscale electronic and optoelectronic systems

As size scales new properties emerge. When materials and structures are at the nanoscale (over a thousand times thinner than a human hair), new functionalities appear that can be harnessed for electronics. We create nanoscale gaps in materials across which electrons travel as though they are in vacuum, without collisions and enabling ultra-high-speed electronics. Materials […]

Brain-inspired electronic devices

We create electronic memory cells and components that mimic functionality of different aspects of the human central nervous system. We design, fabricate, and characterise devices from mimicking firing between neurons to creating neuro-inspired logic circuits to artificial skin receptors to sense pressure, temperature, and pain. This creates a platform for brain-inspired artificial intelligence hardware and […]
