Project Details

Project Description

The Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science aims to manipulate the way light energy is absorbed, transported and transformed in advanced molecular materials. The Centre programmes span high-throughput computational screening, single molecule photochemistry and ultrafast spectroscopy and embrace innovative outreach and commercial translation activities. The Centre plans to capture the knowledge generated as new intellectual property, materials processing know-how, high-impact publications and through the creation of new employment opportunities. The expected outcomes and benefits include new Australian technologies in solar energy conversion, energy-efficient lighting and displays, security labelling and optical sensor platforms for defence.
