High-powered lasers for the analysis of fluorescence signatures from explosives, precursors and other chemicals.

Counter Improvised Threats Grand Challenge Project 186 (CIT-186)
Using leading-edge laser technology to investigate fluorescence from explosives molecules and precursors as a potentially transformative technology for stand-off real-time explosives sensing.

Analysis of photo-physical properties in up-conversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) by means of the custom-build spectrometer/laser system
FND000858: ARC COE AMI -Careers in Biophotonics Workshop - seed grant
The University of Adelaide will perform experiments to analyse the photo-physical properties of up- conversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) by means of the custom-build spectrometer/laser system developed by Macquarie University. The unique capability of this instrument (highly tunable dual-laser excitation, detection window from the visible to the infrared region) will enable an extensive study of the UCNP emission, with particular attention to the luminescence suppression property when using a second NIR laser.
