Australia welcomes new research centre for low-energy electronics technologies

Australia welcomes new research centre for low-energy electronics technologies

Recently, Chief
Executive Officer of Australian Research Council (ARC) Professor Sue Thomas has
welcomed the launch
of a new ARC Centre of Excellence in
Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies (FLEET).

According to Professor Thomas, more efficient, low-energy
electronics technologies and devices are critical to the future of computing
and communication, to address the limitations of present technology.

Aiming to place Australia at the forefront of innovative
research into ultra-low energy electronics, FLEET will focus on addressing the global challenge of reducing
the energy used in information technology and computation, to develop
revolutionary electronics and communications technologies.

FLEET will develop novel methods of resistance-free
electronic conduction that will meet the growing demand for computation that
can operate at ultra-low energy consumption. Researchers at this Centre of
Excellence are collaborating with researchers and partners around the globe to
develop a new generation of ultra-low resistance electronic devices.

FLEET is pursuing 3 research themes to develop systems in which electrical
current can flow with near-zero resistance, they are: topological materials,
exciton superfluids, and light-transformed materials.

To establish this Centre of Excellence, Monash University is
receiving A$33.4 million over seven years from 2017 under the ARC Centres of Excellence scheme.
The Centre will be led by Professor Michael Fuhrer.

The Centre of Excellence led by Monash University will work
with six other universities, including the University of New South Wales; the
Australian National University; RMIT University; Swinburne University of
Technology; University of Wollongong; and the University of Queensland.

It will also work with partner organisations such as National
University of Singapore; Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, Garching,
Germany; Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation; California
Institute of Technology, USA; University of Maryland; Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet
Mainz; Columbia University, New York, USA; University of Colorado, Boulder;
Tsinghua University, Beijing; Synchrotron Light Source Australia Pty Ltd;
University of Wuerzburg, Germany; University of Texas, Austin; and Joint
Quantum Institute.

“Working collaboratively with other participating
universities and its Australian and international industry partners, the Centre
of Excellence will equip the next generation of researchers with the skills and
industry experience to lead this field into the future,” Professor Thomas
