The vision of LAIN is to investigate the artificial neural network inspired by the ideas from artificial-intelligence and nanophotonics for the smarter and greener future.
We are investigating artificial neural networks at the same length scales as those in nature, ultimately to allow for 3D nano-printing of artificial “minds”.
The LAIN is a research node of the Centre for Ultra-high bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS), an Australian Research Centre of Excellence striving towards the development of nanophotonic integrated circuits for smart sensing in defence, health and environment applications.
We are also the lead member of a Science and Industry Endowment Fund (SIEF) project dedicated to the integration of innovative solar cells.
Integrated with RMIT’s other reserach facilities, the LAIN plays a leading role in research translation to deliver impacts.
The LAIN has expertise in:
- 3D nano-printing.
- Optical super-resolution imaging.
- On-chip nanoplasmonics and topological photonics .
- Nanoplas solar cells.
The LAIN is equipped with world-class facilities in ultrafast lasers, detection and characterisation and is integrated with RMIT’s other iconic reserach facilities including the Advanced Manufacturing Precinct, MicroNano Research Facility (MNRF), and the RMIT Microscopy and Microanalysis Research Facility (RMMF).
