How can new technologies use less energy to produce more results?
Come glimpse the research behind novel electronics – new and future devices that use experimental technology. FLEET, the ARC Centre of Excellence in Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies, is at the forefront of new scientific fields. Hear about FLEET’s research into topology, new technologies, novel electronics, 2D materials, ultra-cold atoms and ultra-fast atoms. But don’t just listen: see demonstrations involving lasers, liquid metal and topology.
Dr Dianne Ruka leads the education and training missions of FLEET. Shes responsible for student recruitment and implementing career development programs and internship placements and the development and implementation of outreach programs for FLEET.
