The next generation of sensors and communication systems will be based on the sophisticated manipulation of electromagnetic fields, enabling smart, highly efficient devices with new functionalities. The Advanced Electromagnetics group combines expertise in nanophotonics, metamaterials, quantum optics, optical coherence, and machine learning to drive these innovations. Our experiments demonstrate new phenomena and applications at microwave, terahertz, infrared, and optical frequencies. Our theoretical work establishes novel nanoscale, topological and quantum functionalities of microwave and optical devices.
The group consists of eight academic staff members, four research associates, and eleven HDR students, and currently holds external research grants totalling $2.7M. This includes funding from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication, the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems, two ARC Discovery Projects, an ARC Linkage Project, an ARC LIEF grant, two Asian Office of Aerospace Research and Development grants, and two Defence Science and Technology Group CERA grants.
