- Well done to our collaborator Dane McCamey at the
University of Sydney, who has won an $800,000 grant to study electron
spin resonance in collaboration with the QED group.
- Grant success:
Profs. Hamilton and Sushkov, with collaborators Ulrich Zuelicke in New
Zealand and David Ritchie in the UK, win a $510,00 ARC Discovery grant
for a joint experimental and theoretical study of holes in advanced
- Prof. Hamilton receives an ARC
Outstanding Researcher Award.
- Congratulations to Adam Micolich on the award of
a highly competitive ARC Future Fellowship
to enhance his work on quantum electronics. Outstanding.
- 13 July 2009
- Two awards for QED researchers:
Dr. Oleh Klochan wins a $3000 travel award
from the ARC Nanotechnology Network to visit the University of Cambridge
for a joint research project.
Jason Chen is awarded a scholarship
to allow him to present his work at the 18th International Conference
on Electronic Properties of Two-Dimensional Systems (EP2DS-18) in Kobe,
- Adam Micolich has won the Edgeworth
David Medal, a prestigious early career award made by the
Royal Society of New South Wales. The medal is awarded annually to a
scientist under the age of 35 for distinguished contributions to Australian
science. Previous winners include palaeontologist and former Australian
of the year, Tim Flannery, and the world-leading solar cell physicist,
Martin Green. Full
- Ted Martin wins a prize
for his poster presentation at the International Conference on Electronic
- Sarah has been given a scholarship
to attend a summer school in the Netherlands - have fun!
- UNSW research developing quantum semiconductor devices
that use holes instead of electrons has earned Associate Professor Alex
Hamilton and the QED group the Australasian
Science Prize for 2006. More details are on the
faculty website, with a story on the groups research published
in the current issue of Australasian
- Congratulations to Dr. Adam Micolich on
scooping a prestigious Young Tall Poppy Science Award at
NSW Parliament House for his work on fractal conductance fluctuations
in quantum billiards and hybrid organic-inorganic superconductor materials.
The Young Tall Poppy Program was established by the Australian Institute
of Policy & Science to identify and acknowledge outstanding young
Australian researchers. Rumour has it that Adam celebrated by buying
a new bass guitar.
- Dr. Adam Micolich and A/Prof Alex Hamilton win the Universitys
largest Discovery Project Grant $1.3 million for research
on the quantum properties of GaAs nanostructures. The award includes
a five year ARC Professorial Fellowship
for A/Professor Hamilton.
OF NOTHING: a hole new quantum spin is a media release for the
popular press about our recent work.
"Electronic devices are always shrinking in size but its
hard to imagine anything beating what researchers at the University
of New South Wales have created (read

members and the devices,
as well as a conceptual web
animation of how the devices work.
- Warrick Clarke won the UNSW School of Physics poster
competition with his poster "Holey
- Carlin Yasin won first prize for her poster "First
experimental confirmation of the universal global phase diagram"(jpg
232kb) at the Australian Institute of Physics Biennial congress, in
Darling Harbour, Sydney.
