In this lecture, Professor Tanya Monro will discuss the opportunities for Australia in emerging optical fibre-based technologies.
The Centre of Expertise in Photonics is a joint venture between the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) and the University of Adelaide, with support from the Government of South Australia.
Before coming to Adelaide, Tanya Monro led a research team at the Optoelectronics Research Centre at the University of Southampton in the UK.
The research of Professor Monro and her team centres on developing new classes of optical fibres for applications beyond optical data transmission. She has published more than 200 papers in this and related fields, and is a member of the SA Premier’s Science and Research Council.
