CUDOS researchers at RMIT launch commercial service

CUDOS Chief Investigator Professor Arnan Mitchell and his team at RMIT University have launched a new service for Australian researchers and the data industry: Australian Silicon Photonics – a passive silicon photonic device prototyping service that will dramatically change the nature of Australian research and development based on Silicon Photonics. Read the full story here and visit the Australian Silicon Photonics website for enquiries.

CUDOS is funded by the Australian Research Council under the Centres of Excellence Program , with further support from our seven constituent universities, fifteen partner investigators, and the New South Wales State Government.
