Dr Anna Radionova is an ARC grant-funded Researcher at the University of Adelaide. She obtained her PhD at the University of Auckland in 2019. A major part of her PhD research involved design and development of single- and multi-channel glass emitters and methodologies to explore different aspects of these glass emitter’s performance for biological mass spectrometry.
Dr. Anna Radionova joined the Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS) at the University of Adelaide in 2020 to continue her work on the development of new glass components for microfluidics and advanced manufacturing of optical glass fibers. Her main expertise and research interests are centered on glass fabrication and optimization of the fabrication processes through investigation of glass flow dynamics for both microfluidics and optical applications for industrial purposes. Dr. Anna Radionova is an expert in optical fibre manufacturing techniques from optical fibre preform fabrication methods to drawing of optical fibres from both soft and silica glasses. Fabrication, characterisation, and development methods of glass fibres for both microfluidics and optical applications fundamentally share similar research methodologies and have the same requirements for careful geometrical design of the glass components.
Anna works in collaborations with industry partners: IRflex Corporation, Trajan Scientific and Medical PTY LTD, Maple Glass Printing, etc. She understands the commercial research strategies, stakeholder management and how to achieve project goals and deliver milestones in a timely manner. The interdisciplinary background allows Dr. Radionova to look at the problems from different perspectives and effectively solve industrial challenges.
"Smart design technology for optical fibre manufacture enabling the mid-infrared revolution"
My current research focusses on the development of novel and advanced optical fibres for mid-infrared applications. This involves optical fibre preform extrusion and optical fibre characterisation. I am currently working on systematic examinations of the extrusion technique, which utilises her skills to develop a broad toolkit that will find use in future research projects and applications.
I am now also leading a 3D glass printing project at IPAS and working to establish my own research area. I intend to extend 3D glass printing applications and to make it suitable for the fabrication of transparent glass components for optical and microfluidics applications utilising the knowledge and skills from my research experience.
