Dual Wavelength Pumped Mid-IR Laser
Our technology unlocks a previously under-utilised laser transition in the erbium ion. Using a new technique, we have made the dynamics of this transition competitive and produced significant power from it for the first time.There are currently a few other technologies that provide light in this wavelength band namely GaSb diodes, quantum cascade l...

A Method for Extraction of Nucleic Acids from Lignified Plant Tissue
There is currently a huge interest in verifying the source and legality of timber as several new legislations make it a criminal offence to mis-declare origin of timber or trade in restricted species (Lacey in US, EUTR in EU and new legislation in Australia from 30 November 2014). DNA methods are currently the robust method to verify timber origin ...

Coherent laser radar - For remote sensing of atmospheric wind fields
The coherent laser radar project is developing an eye-safe laser radar, or lidar, for coherent remote sensing of atmospheric wind fields. This system will be able to predict and monitor dispersion of pollutants in the planetary boundary layer, and detect clear-air turbulence and wind- shear in front of aircraft. The Optics and Photonics resear...
