Engagement

We are committed to raising participation in science, as well as building national readiness for the major economic and social changes that will arise as a result of the development of meta-optics, to ultimately improve Australian’s engagement with science and technology.

This is an amazing light beam with a controlled phase and polarisation by our state of the art nanoscale structures.

TMOS will raise awareness of its research among the community, including school students and teachers, as well as with industry. This will build national readiness for the major economic and social changes that will arise as a result of the development of meta-optics, as well as more broadly, giving an exciting ‘news hook’ to improve Australian engagement with science and technology, encourage students into STEM careers and link academia, businesses and the general public. Community dialogue about technologies arising from Industry 4.0 will also enhance TMOS researchers’ understanding of the social impact of meta-optics.
