Australia-Japan Joint Workshop on Frontier Photonics and Electronics

As part of the growing Australia-Asia relations, key groups in photonics and electronics accross Japan, Australia and China came together in a focussed workshop to bridge the links between electronics and photonics within telecommunications, sensing, security and space. With a special empahsis on students, presentations highlighted the value of photonics and electronics from helping spacecraft to land on asteroids to explaining the phenomenon of rogue waves that strike ocean going vessels with sudden and violent force. The Workshop is now ISBN listed and a set of CD proceedings is forthcoming. 

Convenors and Program Chairs:  Prof Kazuo Hotate, The University of Tokyo, Japan; Prof Gang-Ding Peng, University of New South Wales, Australia; Prof John Canning, The University of Sydney, Australia; A/Prof Zuyuan He, The University of Tokyo, Japan.

Australia-China Joint Workshop on Optical Fibre Sensors for Industrial Applications

Abstract: This workshop brings together Australian and Chinese researchers and engineers who are involved in several related international and industry collaborative projects in optical fibre and photonic sensors and their industrial applications. These collaborative projects have been sponsored by the Australian Government Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research (DIISR) and its Chinese counterpart, the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), the Australian Research Council (ARC) and its Chinese counterpart, the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NNSFC), and industry partners RTA and RailCorp in recent years.

Organiser: Prof. Gang-Ding Peng (UNSW) & Prof. John Canning (Usyd)
