Dr Ebinazar Namdas, Dr Shih-Chun Lo, and Professor Paul Burn of the Centre of Organic Photonics & Electronics, The University of Queensland (UQ), AUCAOS colleague, Assoc Prof Chris McNeill (Monash University), and Dr Elizabeth Krenske (School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences, UQ) will be collaborating on a project entitled "Large Area Opto-Electronics (LAOE) for Australia and India". The program is being funded under the Australia-India Strategic Research Fund (AISRF) scheme. The Indian partner is CSIR-National Institute for Interdisciplinary Science and Technology (NIIST). The Australian and Indian Governments are each contributing $1 million in funding.
Potential outcomes from this research include reduced consumer electricity costs, the development of next-generation photo sensors for digital cameras and new lighting technology.
