Prof Philip Leong is part of a research team at the Sydney University that has made a major breakthrough in generating single photons (light particles), as carriers of quantum information in security systems.The ability to generate single photons, which form the backbone of technology used in laptops and the internet, will drive the development of local secure communications systems.
Prof Robert Minasian has been elected for 4 years to the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST), Europe's intergovernmental framework for cooperation in science and technology. The COST Action Prof Miansian is involved in is entitled: "Advanced fibre laser and coherent source as tools for society, manufacturing and life science" and in his role he will be representing Australia and The University of Sydney.
Prof Branka Vucetic , has been named as Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering. Professor Branka Vucetic is recognised as a world leader for her contributions in channel coding theory and its applications in wireless communication systems. Her innovations have had a world-changing impact on technology.
One of the recent works of Prof Abbas Jamalipour , for which a patent has been applied for, and published in the IEEE IoT Journal and Journal of Optics Letters, built an inexpensive and portable functional dual absorption and fluorescence spectrometer combining a smartphone and its set of electronic sensors (and CMOS chip) and a 3D printed enclosure.
Prof Rafael Calvo, Director for the Software Engineering Group, and Ms Dorian Peters have published a book about the "positive computing", a movement championed by Rafael and Dorian, and becoming the tech buzzword of 2015.
Prof Philip Leong's research in the area of reconfigurable computing has been highly recognised at a computing machines symposium in the USA. Reconfigurable computing can be used to accelerate computationally intensive applications such as those found in signal processing, cryptography and computational finance.
A/Prof Javid Atai has won an International Program Development Fund grant to collaborate with world-leading researchers from Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Harvard Medical School. The project aims to develop novel techniques and algorithms to improve the capabilities of biomedical imaging devices so that real-time high-definition video can be transmitted and analyzed.
