The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Transformative Meta-Optical Systems (TMOS) will develop the next generation of miniaturised optical systems with functionalities beyond what is conceivable today.
By harnessing the disruptive concept of meta-optics, we will overcome complex challenges in light generation, manipulation and detection at the nanoscale. Our research outcomes will underpin future technologies, including real-time holographic displays, artificial vision for autonomous systems to see the invisible, wearable medical devices and ultra-fast light-based WiFi, meeting the evolving demands of Industry 4.0.
We will become a trans-disciplinary team of world-leaders in science, technology and engineering to deliver scientific innovations in optical systems.
We will translate research into innovative technologies in transport, health, security, defence, agriculture, entertainment and education with enormous benefit to society and economic growth.
We will prepare outstanding innovators from diverse backgrounds to be future leaders for decades to come.
Discovery: Foster research at the highest international level.
Innovation: Nurture culture of technology innovation.
Collaboration: Create a culture of inclusion, diversity, equity and access.
Education: Prepare outstanding young innovators as future leaders for decades to come.
Engagement: Engage with global and Australian industries to translate the research into innovative technologies in transport, health, security, defence, agriculture, entertainment and education with enormous benefit to society and economic growth.
