Welcome to the Eggleton Research Group
Photonics, Phononics and Integrated Optical Sciences
Being situated in the School of Physics at the University of Sydney, the Eggleton Research Group is led by globally renowned optical physicist Professor Benjamin J. Eggleton, who has been recognised for his important contribution to optical communications technology with applications to chip-based, ultra-fast and ultra-broadband, energy efficient information signal processing devices. Our group enjoys a rich complement of fundamental and applied research on some of the most exciting topics in photonic sciences about optical physics and optoelectronics. The research programs are conducted in state-of-the art laboratories located in the Sydney Nanoscience Hub and in the School of Physics, which were constructed to provide every technological advantage. The research programs rely heavily on the clean-room facilities available in the Sydney Nanoscience Hub for nanofabrication and prototyping. The Eggleton research group is part of Sydney University Institute of Photonics and Optical Science (IPOS), the NSW Smart Sensing Network (NSSN) and are members of the University of Sydney Nano Institute. We also host the Jericho Smart Sensing Laboratory (JSSL).
AUSTRALIA INNOVATES – THE SERIES
Professor Eggleton and his team are excited to be part of the ‘Australia Innovates’ video series launched by Business Events Australia. This series aims to demonstrate Australia’s wide-ranging expertise across several knowledge sectors to position the nation as a world leading association destination.
“Building things that are going to change the world – that would be my enduring legacy for Australia,” Professor Ben Eggleton
