Collaborate with our researchers

Collaborative research projects offer significant scope for the development of new knowledge and practices, new patents, solutions to technical problems and in some cases, the development of new products - all of which can translate into significant economic and social advantages.

Through our business development collaborations, we have assisted public and private organisations by providing expert consultants and access to a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment and facilities that may not otherwise be available.

We have expertise across six research themes:

Research collaboration case study: Silanna picoFAB

Representatives from the schools of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Physics, together with the Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS), are working in collaboration to support Silanna’s advanced compound semiconductor research and investigating opportunities for complementary projects.

The picoFAB has been collaboratively designed by Silanna and the University of Adelaide to support Silanna’s advanced compound semiconductor research program. 

At the heart is a remarkable piece of technology: a molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) semiconductor manufacturing tool. Custom-built by Veeco Instruments, this cutting-edge tool consists of three ultra-high-vacuum deposition chambers, each designed to grow crystalline materials at the quantum scale.
