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).
