IPAS brings together physicists, chemists and biologists to pursue a new transdisciplinary approach to science. We are developing novel photonic, sensing and measurement technologies that will change the way science is done within traditional discipline areas, stimulating the creation of new industries, and inspiring a new generation of scientists to be engaged in solving real-world problems. IPAS research targets applications in four key market areas:
- Defence and national security
- Environmental monitoring
- Preventative health
- Food and wine
The Institute for Photonics & Advanced Sensing has been founded on the success of the Centre of Excellence Photonics, a joint centre of the University of Adelaide and DSTO and the recognition of the importance that new forms of Advanced Sensing will play in the world.
