Developing novel methods of biomedical diagnostics using hyperspectral microscopy to characterise natural colour and morphology of cells and tissues in the body, to determine whether they carry the early hallmarks of disease. This can yield early screening systems for detecting ill but pre-symptomatic individuals.
The security of coastlines can be greatly enhanced using sonar arrays including those towed by autonomous marine drones. This technology produces low-cost, robust, lightweight and power-efficient towed-array sonars based on optical sensing technologies developed in collaboration with industry partners.
Optical solutions for industrial and biomedical sensing applications. These include monitoring under hazardous conditions such as those found in petrochemical plants, mines and food processing environments, and monitoring and imaging of neuronal activities in biological tissues such as those found in the brain, retina and muscle.
Advanced sensing systems provide an integrated solution for environmental and safety monitoring across a range of industries, including mining, defence, agriculture, forestry, food processing and health.
